Outlook on FFDD23: Tribute for Yann Gonzalez
Yann Gonzalez's imaginatively arranged auteur films combine high art and genre cinema, modernity and gothic in a unique and fascinating blend. They combine wicked wit and innocent naivety, are stylised but never superficial. They are imbued with queer sensibility, great respect, and deep fascination for all creatures of the night.
We are delighted to be screening a selection of his short films as well as his 2019 feature film KNIFE + HEART with Vanessa Paradis in two tribute programmes at the festival under the title "Before the Dawn Heals Us". Do not miss!
