Guest: Jörg Buttgereit

JÖRG BUTTGEREIT

The controversial director will be joining us for the whole weekend and will be taking part in a Q&A introduction for his classic piece of extreme cinema Nekromantik (1987).

Jörg Buttgereit, born 1963 in Berlin, has been called a ‘Tash Poet’, ‘Punk Surrealist’ and ‘Underground Icon’ by the press. He is the director and author of arthouse-horror-movies (Nekromantik, Der Todesking, Schramm), TV- documentaries (Monsterland, Into the night with…), stageplays (Captain Berlin versus Hitler, Gabba Gabba Hey! – The Ramones musical) and radio dramas (Green Frankenstein, Sexmonster!). He also works as a film journalist for books and magazines.

Away from the extreme side of things, Jörg directed an episode of TV series Lexx in 1999.

We’re delighted to have Jörg with us to give us an insight into his work.
