THE LAST WINTER unspools in Brussels in Eco Horror program at Offscreen Film Fest 9/17/21

Fessenden’s film among 30 essential eco-horrors
such as THE BIRDS, PROPHESY, PRINCESS MONONOKE, FROGS,
GODZILLA VS. THE SMOG MONSTER, STALKER, WATERWORLD, etc…

ECO-HORROR & CLIMATE FICTION | OFFSCREEN

In the wake of the unprecedented pandemic, we plunge headfirst into the toxic ooze of the “anthropocene”, an epochal description of the last two hundred and fifty years, during which mankind has disrupted the climate and despoiled every last inch of Earth’s natural landscape

Our programme includes no less than thirty films, divided between Cinema Nova and Cinematek. From an out-of-control climate (The Last Winter), retribution from the animal world (Long Weekend) and plagues of arthropods (Kingdom of the Spiders, Phase IV) to pandemics (The Andromeda Strain), pollution (Frogs) and overpopulation (Soylent Green), it will be a dark trip through cinematic depictions of climate fear, at the point where the dystopian sci-fi of the first ecological genre films of the 1970s is increasingly becoming a dangerous and tangible reality.

An American oil company rep (Ron Perlman) clashes with an environmental scientist on a remote Alaskan outpost afflicted by odd phenomena. An effect of climate change, or is everyone going stir crazy? Eerie indie eco-horror in which the snowy wasteland draws on its paranormal heritage to oppose the human invaders.

THE LAST WINTER Introduced by Silvia Pastorelli (Greenpeace EU climate and energy expert)

Jack Fessenden’s FOXHOLE to World Premier at Germany’s Oldenburg Film Festival Sept 17, 2021

Andi Matichak stars in the Glass Eye Pix / Nous Entertainment production

from the Program Notes:

36 hours in three different wars – the American Civil War, World War I, and Iraq. »Foxhole« follows a small group of soldiers who are confronted in a confined space with questions of their morality, the futility of their actions, and an increasingly unpredictable combat situation. Between courage born of desperation, fear of death, and absurd attempts to posit positions of right or wrong, Jack Fessenden’s intensifying construct invites space to everything that defines a human being. There is no war, there is no patriotic goal, not even orientation in the most elementary sense. All there is, is a foxhole, a wall of fog and a desperate will not to die. A war movie, an anti-war movie, a deeply humanistic movie, written and directed by a 19-year-old that is as mature, thoughtful and poetic as “Foxhole” is a dazzling promise for the future of cinema. Nothing less than humanity is negotiated, from the trench in the American Civil War to a Humvee in the Iraq war. What have we learned in the last 150 years?

watch LIBERTY KID on HBO MAX

“There is no shortage of films
about the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks,
but there is a lack of good ones. The low-budget indie Liberty Kid,
produced by downtown auteur Larry Fessenden,
is one of those that succeeds.”
—New York Post

“Liberty Kid elevates that woeful genre, the 9/11 movie,
by keeping a ‘Wire’-worthy ear to the street talk

of south Williamsburg and maintaining
a shrewd balance of the personal and the political…

an uncommonly acute, deftly played drama”
Village Voice
