Studiofilmclub hosts provocative films and after-party at ttff/12


Since 2006, Studiofilmclub (SFC), founded by artists Peter Doig and Che Lovelace, has been host to one of the some of the most anticipated screenings and after-parties during the trinidad+tobago film festival.

This year, SFC will feature three films starring Michael Fassbender, best known for his roles in the films Inglourious Basterds (2009), X-Men: First Class (2011), and the science fiction film Prometheus (2012).

On Thursday September 20th, SFC will host a free screening of Shame, the latest film by acclaimed British filmmaker and video artist Steve McQueen. Shame is a sophisticated, moving study of the elusive search for intimacy in the big city. It tells the story of Brandon (Fassbender), a handsome, successful thirty-something New York executive with a secret: he is addicted to sex. Unable to maintain a steady relationship with a woman, he seeks satisfaction in one-night stands, prostitutes and porn.

On Friday September 21, SFC will also host a shorts package by British filmmaker and musician John Maclean. Maclean collaborated with Michael Fassbender on two of the films being shown. Man on a Motorcycle, shot entirely on a cellphone, follows a day in the life of a London motorcycle courier at breaking point in his profession and his life. In Pitch-Black Heist,  Liam and Michael are professional safecrackers who meet on a simple job to relieve an office safe of its contents. The catch is a light-activated alarm system, which impels the men to embark on a pitch-black heist.

John Maclean will be present at the screening of the shorts package to do a Q&A session. Following the screenings and Q&A, Maclean will deejay the after-party.

Additionally, on Friday 21st at 11.15am at the Carlton Savannah Hotel Maclean will talk about his experience making his first film on a cellphone.
