Shadow of the Unnamable and the workprint of my latest film, Fragment 1890 were recently screened at the prestigious 29th international Filmfestival in Braunschweig. Both films were very well received by the audience.
I was also invited to attend an interesting discussion panel on Lovecraft´s influence on film and popular culture. The other participants of the panel were the director Huan Vu (die Farbe), Axel Weiß (Arkham Insiders podcast) and Daniel Neugebauer (Deutsche Lovecraft Gesellschaft e.V.).
The panel was expertly led by Clemens Williges, the curator of the festival´s „Lovecraft at midnight“ program. The panel was held in German language. It was recorded by Tobias Kloppisch from Deep Red Radio, you can find the link below.
