Bacchanale in Berlin

Many thanks to the Pornfilmfestival Berlin 2008 for screening Bacchanale as a feature selection on Oct. 24:

Here's their kind words from the program notes:

"To pay homage to this underground cult film, 57 audio artists set themselves at the behest of the New York Art Collective Monkey Town to re-interpret it and sew a new sonic garment on its entire body. The result is amazing: Not only does it boost the intoxicating character of "Bacchanale" to an immense degree, but also through the various themes of the musical background, there emerges a collection of 57 short, totally different miniatures, that in the end make a whole. Bacchanale 2006 - it is more than a film, it is an experience!"
