Rouzbeh Rashidi’s latest feature film Trailers will premiere at the 61st Cork Film Festival  on Sunday November 13th at Triskel Christchurch Cinema.

TrailersTrailers  unites the most personal and experimental aspects of underground filmmaking with a scope that is as cosmically vast as a science fiction epic. Rashidi’s ongoing exploration into the nature of cinema sees a group of characters adrift in space, each locked into their own sexual rituals while a cataclysm of universal proportions unfolds. Humanity has become a mysterious burlesque show for alien eyes: the gaze of the film camera. This visionary spectacle uses multiple formats and visual textures in weaving an erotic anti-narrative suspended in its own space and time.

The film features Vicky Langan, Maximilian Le Cain, Anja Mahler, Jann Clavadetscher, Dean Kavanagh, Cillian Roche, Julia Gelezova, Jennifer Sharpe, Alicja Ayres, Eadaoin O’Donoghue, George Hanover, Klara McDonnell, and Martin Berridge.

An Experimental Film Society production, Trailers  was shot over one year with the support of an Arts Council of Ireland Project Award.

Trailers premieres at the 61st Cork Film Festival on Sunday November 13th at Triskel Christchurch at 8.15pm. Tickets are still available. The festival runs November 11th to 20th.

The film will also play in Portugal at Film Panic @ Maus Hábitos, in Thailand at The Reading Room Bangkok, and in Germany at Lichtblick-Kino Berlin. For more on Trailers check out the film’s Blog.
