Special Programmes

Out of Competiton and the programmes form selected film festivals.

In Midnight Programme, we aimed for a new approach in selecting films for adults, featuring 2 documentaries and 2 fictions. Kinbaku is a documentary about Kinbaku-shi, tying artists, and Dirty Martini portrays the Burlesque depicting New York's underground. Saam Farahmand presents sexy and rather lewd, Study After Cruel Intentions, and Fencer by a Latvian director, Astra Zoldnere, in which a married woman's dull life gets enlivened by her sexual escapades.
