Blissed (World premiere) at Wolf Kino

Blissed (The World Premiere)

Saturday June 4th 2022, 7PM
Wolf Kino, Weserstr. 59, 12045 Berlin
The world premiere of Blissed, a new feature film by Maximilian Le Cain.

Blissed is an experimental love story, both lyrical and graphic. Hovering in the sensuous haze where flesh and dream become one, it wordlessly explores the shared inner life of two people whose devotion to one another expresses itself in forms that still challenge convention. Sexually frank and poetically immersive, this plunge into one couple’s erotic utopia features an original soundtrack by Mick O’Shea.

This premiere is part of a regular series of programmes of Experimental Film Society (EFS) films at Wolf Kino. EFS is one of the most radical, influential and distinctive forces in contemporary alternative cinema. It produces and promotes the work of a group of international artists and filmmakers who are linked by a dedication to personal experimental cinema. Le Cain is one of the most prominent EFS filmmakers. He has created a prolific and acclaimed body of moving image work that proposes a personal relationship with cinema as a site of haunting.

Maximilian Le Cain will be present for a post-screening Q&A moderated by EFS director Rouzbeh Rashidi.
