With the growing interest in this award-winning documentary on social fallacies, ZEITGEIST will screen as part of the X FEST with two shows on Friday 28 March. It will also get additional screenings after the X FEST. Please contact the Labia Theatre for dates and times.
ZEITGEIST is the documentary phenomenon produced by Peter Joseph, exposing lies, half truths and factual distortions to which the population of the world has been subjected over centuries by the powers that be. It is an eye-opening work which may shake the foundations of many viewers, and change the way the world is viewed.
FRIDAY 28 MARCH - 10:15pm (R20) > Screen 2
This engrossing, mind-blowing, shocking and heart-breaking documentary looks at the life and death of Bob Flanagan, super-masochist, performance artist and Cystic Fibrosis sufferer. The dichotomy of his sado-masochistic lifestyle and his deadly illness is a staggering parallel symbiosis, leading to many emotional moments and some visceral visuals (from his performance art and domination games, to such extremes as Bob whacking a nail through his own dick!
(Not to be confused with Michael Moore’s SICKO)
SATURDAY 29 MARCH - 2:15pm (R20) > Screen 2
Drug Crazed Abandon!
"Women cry for it! Men die for it!"
Cult classic cautionary propaganda flick from 1936 warning against the deadly dangers of marijuana.
Punk’s not dead…but it’s about to be!
SATURDAY 29 MARCH - 6:15pm (R20) > Screen 2
This controversial movie was made in the snuff style as it follows a man and his video camera on a dark journey as he picks up a young girl and takes her to a motel room.
The planned assembly of a diverse panel to discuss and debate extreme entertainment and its merits from an artistic-, moral-, censorship-, and freedom-of-speech perspective, will feature at the next X FEST.
SATURDAY 29 MARCH - 10:15pm (R20) > Screen 2
Doug Sakmann’s graphic adult spoof of this classic horror film is hilarious, shocking, titillating and totally nuts.
Warning: extremely xxxplicit!
(Features punk rock porn star Joanna Angel, and in a cameo, Evan Seinfeld - Biohazard vocalist and star of prison drama Oz)
SUNDAY 30 MARCH - 2:15pm (R20) > Screen 2
This documentary features a rare interview with Charles Manson, shedding light on the insanity (and sometimes clarity) of the man who sanctioned the brutal Tate/LaBianca murders in the Hollywood hills in the summer of 1969, inadvertently bashing the final nail in the coffin of the love generation.
SUNDAY 30 MARCH - 8:30pm (R20) > Screen 1
Unfortunately, director Ryan Nicholson couldn't make it from Canada to introduce his movie, take questions afterwards, meet & greet. We know, you were as disappointed as we were...
Courier cost to send the movie to S.A. overnight was astronomical, and the DVD download attempt failed. So, we ended up screening PERVERT!, the X FEST Best Picture winner again to close the festival.
You can see Gutterballs at the 2008 South African HORRORFEST late October. www.HORRORFEST.info
A series of bizarre gory murders disrupt a midnight disco bowl-a-rama at a popular bowling alley. One by one, players of two teams meet blood-drenched gruesome deaths at the hand of a masked killer wearing a black bowling-glove. This alley will run red with blood by sunrise and the twist that reveals the killer will shock even the most jaded viewer!
