Cine-Excess VI at the Institute: Transglobal Excess: The Art and Atrocity of Cult Adaptation
The Italian Cultural Institute and Cine-Excess VI International Film Festival present a series of high profile panel discussions and exclusive screenings.
Cine-Excess VI focuses on global adaptations of cult narratives, genres, themes and icons across a broad range of media and fiction formats. In order to investigate this concept further, Cine-Excess VI will consider global case-studies of cult adaptation, with a particular focussing on differing national and narrative conceptions of the outlandish and the extreme.
Curated by writer, academic and highly regarded cineaste Xavier Mendik, guests include the acclaimed action director and Tarantino influence Enzo G. Castellari (The Inglorious Bast***s, Keoma, Bronx Warriors, Street Law), as well as the iconic Euro-cult auteur Sergio Martino (Torso, All the Colours of the Dark, The Violent Professionals, Mountain of the Cannibal God).
