Special guest

Zellner Bros

 

We all know of famous brothers who have dedicated themselves to the world of cinema. To start quoting them would be absurd. But perhaps many still do not know the Zellner brothers. And David and Nathan are still two unknown by the general public, outside the United States. And that they have been making films since they debuted in 1997 with Plastic Utopia. Since then they have filmed together five long films and a handful of short films awarded at the most prestigious festivals in the world. Given tasks of direction, script, production, editing, photography and even acting, we can say that the Zellner brothers are among the few current directors who control their work until the end. Real author cinema because they also have a very marked style constants: absurd humor, cinephile references that reinvent, rarefied everyday life, lonely characters, the state of Texas and the strange presence of various animals as protagonists. The Zellner are the last hidden jewel of American indie cinema. This complete cycle will help you to realize it.
