Part of Winter 1995
Pleasure Dome is pleased to present Mara Mattuschka’s Kurtzfilme (Short films) (1984-1993) and the Canadian premiere of Loading Ludwig (1989). In this broad sampling of works, Romanian-born, Vienna-based Mara Mattuschka playfully moves through motherhood to monster flicks Ã‘ where an alien, out on the town, wreaks havoc of epic proportions. Androgynous star Mimi Minus infuses mischievous humor and strange wisdom into the existence of Mattuschka’s characters. These monochromatic films are performance-based, ‘New German Expressionism’ gone wild – unhindered by the absense of English subtitles.
