With this daring motto, playfully ironic visual design and primarily interesting film selection, Visegrad Film Festival presented its programme in Cork, Ireland. How was it, where does it go and why is it actually held in Ireland?

Black Sun is based on a short novel by the American Science-fiction author Samuel R. Delany which tells the story of the meeting between a "spacer" and a "frelk". A "spacer" is an androgyne being, determined to execute technical work on the planets near by and their moons. A "spacer" is able to adapt itself to any kind of gravitation. For this reason they become for the "frelks"- who depend on the gravitation of the earth - buyable objects of desire.
Black Sun starts with the landing of a "spacer" on the earth and shows his meeting with a "frelk woman" who expects a sexual affair with the "floating meat". The impossible love affair (the "spacer" lost its sexual identity due to metamorphosis) takes place in a future world where bodies radiate, where shadows transform into mirrors and where darkness illuminates space. The human being as an insect under the dark light of the sun, in a time far away which is sometimes erroneously called childhood. (Johannes Hammel)
