purgatory / noun / an intermediate place or state of temporary suffering for expiatory purification
Within the word "purgatory", it is easy to envision condemned souls, torment and darkness. However, purgatory may also reflect the cyclic state in which we often rediscover or recreate ourselves anew from within our personal inflictions. Sometimes it is the necessary stage to exorcise ourselves from the haunting ghosts of the past. Perhaps it is the serene place of self reflection and realization.
From within this, DAMNED proudly presents an exhibition of powerful cinema called Purgatory. Held on March 30th & 31st 2012 at the Tangent Gallery in Detroit, Purgatory will present various short films of deeply introspective, beautifully disturbing and darkly enlightening subject matters from filmmakers local and worldwide. This is not an industry-focused horror film festival, but a tributary showcase of the often redemptive films from the filmmaker's personal damnations.
The full film schedule will be released after March 1st.
