Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 12: Thursday Jan 12

Abendland (Geyrhalter, 2011): Riverside Studios, 7.30pm

This is the UK premiere of multi-award winning Austrian director Nikolaus Geyrhalter’s subtly apocalyptic view of Western consumerism and decadence, intercut with those desperately trying to enter its borders.

"Nikolaus Geyrhalter makes documentaries with neither commentary nor music, bearing witness to a sick world . . ." So begins Joelle Stolz's feature on the film in the Guardian. You can read the full article here and here are more details about the Riverside screening, which has been organised by DocHouse, which was formed to support and promote documentaries in the UK.

Here is the trailer.
