Cyrus Frisch Retrospective in Split

Cyrus Frisch Retrospective at Split Film Festival

The Split International Festival of New Film will organize a retrospective with four feature films by acclaimed Dutch avant-garde director Cyrus Frisch.

The festival will show the films SELFPITY (ZELFBEKLAG, 1993) – according to Cyrus Frisch, the existence of this movie was a good kept secret – FORGIVE ME (VERGEEF ME, 2001), WHY DIDN’T ANYBODY TELL ME IT WOULD BECOME THIS BAD IN AFGHANISTAN (WAAROM HEEFT NIEMAND MIJ VERTELD DAT HET ZO ERG ZOU WORDEN IN AFGHANISTAN, 2007) and DAZZLE (OOGVERBLINDEND, 2009).

In 2007 Cyrus Frisch visited the Tribeca Film Festival with his film WHY DIDN’T ANYBODY TELL ME IT WOULD BECOME THIS BAD IN AFGHANISTAN, which was also selected for a.o. the International Film Festival Rotterdam and the film festival in San Francisco. In 2009 Frisch returned to Tribeca with DAZZLE, which was selected for many international film festivals as well, including the festival in Rotterdam and BAFICI in Buenos Aires.

Frisch’ latest film DAZZLE tells the story of a passionate love between a man, played by Rutger Hauer (star of BLADE RUNNER), and a woman (Dutch star actress Georgina Verbaan) who long for a more beautiful world to live in. Through a trick of fate they find themselves connected by telephone. They share a sense of horror with the world that is surrounding them. Their conversation provides a welcome escape, but cannot avert a fatal ending.

The 15th edition of the Split International Festival of New Film will take place from September 11 – 18, 2010.
