CLOUD of SKIN by Maximilian Le Cain

I'm happy to announce CLOUD OF SKIN, a feature film by Maximilian Le Cain, is getting it's World Premiere at the 60th Cork Film Festival. You should go.

Deeply haunted by the memory of his dead lover, a man wanders through the sites of their encounters. The dead woman, a blind visionary, has transferred her perceptual powers to him as part of their undying bond. Rather than unfolding as a traditional narrative, experimental filmmaker Maximilian Le Cain’s first feature takes the form of a visually and sonically immersive fever dream. Composer Karen Power’s intense soundscapes complete this mysterious and unusual cinematic experience.

In association with Unbend Leg Out OPEN NIGHT CINEMA presented REFRIGERATED on 12th September 2015.
Once a commercial drive-in fridge-freezer for the offloading and loading of frozen fruit and vegetables but now houses the creative juices of ONC and it's collaborators.
REFRIGERATED saw the breakdown of the typical 'band' structure. Lasting just under 2 hours members of the audience were encouraged to collaborate and interact with the ongoing performance resulting in a epic improvised industrial audio/visual landscape.
Special Thanks The Barry People and all those who contributed to the noise on the night.
