This unique festival will bring eight special films to Macau which have probably never been seen on the big screen in the city. To make things more interesting, they will be screened at midnight every Friday and Saturday between August 31 and September 22. Each of the eight films is from a different part of the world and each is a cult success in its own right, with some being successful, some being comedic and some being thoughtful.
The opening movie is one of most talked about the horror films of the year, Hereditary. For those who like a bit of blood and gore, they should check out French director Julia Ducournau’s, Raw. The Wild Boys, meanwhile, is a stylish, unusual take on cross-dressing, being a survival story as well. There is also a shock comedy, Female Trouble, from John Waters. Miami Connection is an action-cult film directed by taekwondo master Y. K. Kim. Another cult piece not to be missed is A Tale of Sorrow and Sadness – an erotic film about a female golfer directed by Seijun Suzuki. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Coen brothers’ comedy The Big Lebowski, and this is also one of the festival’s highlights. Finally, The Holy Mountain, directed by cult pioneer Alejandro Jodorowsky, is another cult classic to catch on the big screen.
