Querelle - SuperTrash III
Above is my submission for the SUPERTRASH Film poster competition - my take on Fassbinder's seminal but ridiculous 1982 "Querelle", inspired by Jean Genet's novella "Querelle of Brest".
Here are the Supertrash details;-
3RD SUPERTRASH FEST takes place Aug. 15-17, 2008 at Portland's gigantic Bagdad Theater. Basically it's a film fest that combines fantasy, sci-fi, horror, action, live burlesque and a special art exhibit sponsored by Fantagraphics Books. The first two fests broke records at the Bagdad theater and this one is sure to be a big hit, coinciding with the Hawthorne Street Fair and also including the Floating World Animation Festival. The exhibit will also be on display at Floating World Comics for their Supertrash First Thursday show, August 7th.
Here are the guidelines for the show: using any medium you choose, we'd like you to re-imagine an original 'movie poster' for an existing movie (preferably a movie that is either very trashy or very pretentious). You can send originals to be displayed at the theater, but really all we need is for you can submit the work digitally and we will print it out to display. The best submissions will be compiled in a book to be published by Fantagraphics.
