Cosmotropia de Xam: An otherworldly triple-bill

$9 for 5 days VOD

Three mind blowing and truly extraordinary films from Cosmotropia de Xam

Amacabra: The metempsychosis of Justine S. 2016, 63 mins

In the outer districts of West Berlin something strange is happening. Justine is given a mysterious device by a mysterious person, which is called “The Hairs From The Cross Of Jesus”. Her life will never be the same again.

A surreal multi layer narration mindfuck, revisiting the original locations of Zulawski’s Possession (1981).

Phantasmagoria, 2017, 71 mins

“This strange girl told me something about the water….”

Set in a grey, bleak and decrepit European town an American investigative journalist (Rachel Audrey) is looking into a series of macabre and strange phenomena that have been impacting the local residents. She suspects that it is something in the water? Audrey encounters a local girl, Valentina (Mari K), who, surrounded by caged birds and speaking in demonic riddles, warns of a great evil infecting the town. Then Diane starts to change… Phantasmagoria is like no other film you will have seen. Imagine Jean Rollin mashed with Borowczyk and then the resulting work re-imagined by Jess Franco – visual blasphemy!

“There’s no compromise in the delivery of this piece and in a wholly satisfying way we are at the mercy of the director and the journey they wish to take us on.”

“a moody, melancholy tour of some truly breath-taking locations: a study of decay.”

Inferno Index, 2021, 68 mins

Litha is pursued by demons, wanting to enthrall her and make her one of their own. Will they succeed?

More visual blasphemy from the mind of Cosmotropia de Xam (Acid Babylon, Black Mass of the Brain), made during lockdown alongside artist Mira, singer Marijana, and musician Lapis.

Lockdown presented unique challenges and obstacles, and therefore new approaches to things, which has given this film a different feel to other works in our Cosmotropia de Xam collection, see what you think…
