London Screening Of “Transfer” Coming (Sci-Fi Film About Whites Paying To Have Their Souls Deposited Into The Bodies Of Blacks)
A German film I initially profiled back in September, when it was selected for Fantastic Fest 2010, will screen for UK audiences in about 3 weeks, as part of The London International Festival Of Science Fiction And Fantastic Film.
As I said in my initial post, at the time, the ideas here simultaneously intrigue, as well as concern me, having not seen the film!
On one hand, it may provide for an intriguing opportunity to explore race, privilege, class, identity, ethics, the nature of being/consciousness and more, on film, and maybe in ways that we haven’t quite seen before; on the other, it could be nothing more than an exploitative (even though well-intended) piece of trash fiction… an experiment gone completely wrong… especially at the hands of a white European filmmaker.
German filmmaker Damir Lukacevic is its director. The film was released in Germany last year, but really hasn’t been screened much since then… notably in English-language territories.
It’s is called Transfer; and, once again, here’s the breakdown:
Given your comments to my last post on this, I appear to be in the minority of people with the above duality I mentioned. I’d like to finally see it for myself, so I hope it comes to New York soon.
In the meantime, our many UK readers can check it out when it screens at Sc-Fi-London on May 1st, at 7:45PM. Click HERE for details. Maybe our own MsWOO, who lives in London, will be bothered to see it, and review it for the rest of us on this site. I certainly hope someone out there reading this site, who lives in London, will be able to see the film and share their thoughts with us.
I’m trying to get info on USA play dates, so stay tuned…
Here’s the trailer again:
