IMPAKT TV episode #5: Thursday 14:15
Q&A Daniel Jacoby (The New Joy of Sex) + screening Flowers Bloomin in Our Throats
Location: IMPAKT TV from Koepelzaal
This episode follows the screening programme The New Joy of Sex. We start with a Q&A with filmmaker Daniel Jacoby, who is with us in the IMPAKT TV studio in Utrecht to answer all your questions about his film No One Cried (2021). In this film the ghostly spaces of empty adult chat rooms take us on an unsettling journey of self-expression and lonesome desire. Send in your question at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the live chat.
Afterward you can sit back and enjoy the screening of an intimate and poetic short film: Flowers Bloomin in Our Throat (2020) by Eva Giolo. Filmed in 16mm just after the lockdown caused by COVID-19, Flowers blooming in our throats is a portrait of the fragile balances that govern everyday life in a domestic setting.
This episode is hosted by Marijn Bril.
