It’s Friday the 13th and Borscht Corp, the team behind the Borscht Film Festival, is celebrating the demonic date by hosting a FREE midnight screening of the German horror film “The Burning Moon” at O Cinema. Directed by Olaf Ittenbach and banned in many countries after its 1997 release, “The Burning Moon” is infamous for the gruesome imagery of its two central stories, one featuring a blind date with a serial rapist/killer and the other stars a murderous holy man.
The O Cinema screening marks the film’s Miami debut and the big-screen premier of “Burning Mo0on” (embedded above), a multimedia collaboration between sleepwalking, the sideproject of Miami pop duo ANR, and art-science duo Coral Morphologic that features footage from “The Burning Moon”.
Borsht commissioned artist Johnny Ryan to do a gory, glow-in-the-dark poster for the event, and we have one of the limited-edition prints to give away to one macabre reader. To enter to win, simply shout “Burning Moon” in the comment section. We will email the winner later today.
