Underground Cinema

3 short films

(de voertaal van deze avond is Engels).

Jeffrey's Underground Cinema has been showing neglected and forgotten films for the last decade. This night: 3 amazing short films from the sixties.

3 short films:

RAKVICKARNA 1966
(Punch and Judy)
Directed by Jan Švankmajer
10 minutes
Wonderfully chaotic Punch and Judy shenanigans, done in Old-style Czech style, with mad choppy editing and a crazy mix of stop-motion, puppets and automatons. Fast, short and a real theatrical explosion!

FIVE CHARACTERS IN SEARCH OF AN EXIT 1961
Directed by Lamont Johnson
25 minutes
Enter the Twilight Zone. An Army major, a clown, a bagpiper, a ballerina, and a hobo wake up in a strange circular room with no door. None of them have any idea how they got there, and have lost their memories.

CHE COSA SONO LE NUVOLE? 1968
(What are Clouds?)
Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini
20 minutes
The Italian comedian actor Totò was almost a God in Italian cinema. During the last year before he died he began an incredible filmic relationship with Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini. One of Totò’s last performances, just before his death, was in this short film made in 1968, which we will show tonight as a tribute to the great actor and the craft of puppetry in general.
