German 2014. 1H 52 Mins

Tales of love, sex and death in Berlin from Germany’s most shocking directors.
Angst is a German word originally, which may account for this portmanteau of three very different short films from very different directors, linked by their sheer, well… Germanness. Jorg Buttgereit, infamous boundary-pushing director of NEKROMANTIK and DER TODESKING offers a stark and ambiguous exploration of a real-life ritualistic, sexualised murder which may or may not be an act of revenge; Michal Kosakowski weighs in with a brutal meditation on victims and aggressors and the horrible legacy of Nazism; and finally Andreas Marschall presents a truly outrageous psychedelic, psychosexual reworking of the decadent Alraune legend which fans of Andrej Zulawski’s infamous cult arthouse horror POSSESSION will not want to miss.
