Putty Hill: the white trash universe already portrayed in Winter’s Boneand Gummo

At a neighborhood karaoke bar, friends and family gather to remember a young man who died of a heroin overdose in an abandoned house in Baltimore. Knowing little about his final days, they attempt to reconstruct his life. In the process, they offer a window onto their own lives, an evocative picture of working class America, dislocated from the progress and mobility around them, but united in pursuit of a shared dream. A beautifully realized portrait of a close–knit community on the outskirts of Baltimore, Putty Hill is the second feature from celebrated young filmmaker Matt Porterfield. Mixing documentary and fiction, this observational film immerses the viewer in the white trash universe already portrayed in films like Winter’s Bone and Gummo.

Op Wednesday 12 October Putty Hill is screened at 8 p/m/ in Vooruit - 85'. Also on 14 October at 5 p.m. (Vooruit) and 20 October at 10:30 p.m. (KASKcinema).

Yesterday (or how we felt about the rumour)

© Mario Leko
For his newest creation, Piet Arfeuille has taken his work in a new direction: he collaborated with young director Nathalie Teirlinck, who previously won the European Film Award for her short filmVenus vs Me at the Berlin Film Festival (2010). Arfeuille and Teirlinck investigated how they could combine film and theatre, starting from the idea that the invisible is just as exciting as the visible.

On Wednesday 12 October te zien at 8 p.m. in Vooruit (Emiel studio) - Dutch spoken - 90’. Until Saturday 15 October + from Tuesday 18 until Saturday 22 October at 8 p.m.

New documentary film and performance by Berlin: Tagfish

What to do with a chunk of undeveloped land strewn with industrial heritage? Sheik Hani Yamani thinks building a luxury hotel would be a good idea, even though the site is Unesco World Heritage. Six characters represented by six flat screen TVs sit and wait at a table. The seventh chair, reserved for the Sheik, is empty... After the successful ‘Holoceen’ cycle, which included Iqaluit and Bonanza,Berlin embarks on a new cycle entitled ‘Horror Vacui’ with Tagfish.

On Wednesday 12 October at 8 p.m. in Minard - English / German spoken, Dutch subtitles - 70’. Also on Thursday 13 October at 8 p.m.
