The CAMERIMAGE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2014 has selected MY BLIND HEART to be part of its Main Competition!

The Main Competition with the Golden, Silver and Bronze Frog Awards has been the most important part of the Festival since its first edition in 1993. From the very beginning the idea behind the competition has been to present feature films with images that significantly contribute to the way stories are told. The visual value of these films results from cooperation between directors and cinematographers. The Main Competition emphasizes the enormous contribution of a cinematographer to the art of film.

The festival will take place in Bydgoszcz, Poland, from November 15-22, 2014.

MEIN BLINDES HERZ – MY BLIND HEART is going to South Africa! We will have our SA premiere at DURBAN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL from July 17 – 27, 2014.

From the catalogue:

“My Blind Heart follows Kurt, a young man suffering from Marfan syndrome – a genetic disorder – as he lives a marginal life in the city of Vienna. Nearly blind, and at war with his own body, Kurt’s chaotic trajectory sees him evicted from a care facility and forced to share the shelter of an abandoned office-building with a group of society’s misfits. In heightened black-and-white, the film effectively conveys Kurt’s fantasies of a destruction that mirrors that of his disintegrating body. This relentlessly existential visual experience is richly textured, while its relentless sensory immersion powerfully suggests the protagonist’s imprisonment in his broken body.”

MEIN BLINDES HERZ – MY BLIND HEART received a Special Mention at the FESTIVAL NUOVO CINEMA EUROPA in Genoa, Italy.

“For the excellent performance in directing such a hard work, especially considering it’s his debut film. For the ability of shaping a black and white story in an unpredictable way, for the almost visionary experimentalism of the story. Finally we greatly appreciated the presence of the female protagonist, the young Jana McKinnon, whose face was a spark in this dark parable of desperation and psychological distress.”
