we are happy to annonce that our film “horny fruits – wild kitchen dreams” has finished the innuendo award 2018 as finalist. the festival was held in milano, italy. for us this is something special, because the manifesto of the festival appeals to us very much. our film fits very well to this festival and to be screened in front of an open-minded and interested audience is an honour for us.

the manifesto of the innuedo festival:

“the very original context of the word “innuendo” is that of political trials around the crown of england in the 17th century. innuendos were rhetorical means used at once by political activists to formulate concealed attacks against absolute monarchy and tyrants as well as by the machinery of the courts to accuse system opponents for being guilty of treason and other capital offences. in the legal kind of framework innuendos are either “true” or “false”. in an epoch where social realities are more than ever constructed on the basis of allegations that are all but covert, we are keen to spot in films every attempt to let drop a hint, insinuate, allude to and use every figurative instrument (as double-meanings, allusions, insinuations, apparently innocent words, allegations, rumors, suggestive remarks, etc.) in order to support by any means the own particular and interested narrative. …

cinema is capable of constructing social reality and can through its powerful imagery influence the process and the content of imaging, by suggesting ideas, associations, and connections, giving certain explanations for the development of the story we learn about. mostly the associations are directly and explicitly stated, but sometimes they are indirectly implied.

either way, it is left to the audience to make the suggested connections. narrative cinema, due to its teleological nature, makes use only of logic explanations for providing clarity, not giving much space to parenthetical ones as arthouse cinema does, because accepting the fragmentation of time. some space in-between is therefore missed in modernist cinema, the liminal space which gives the chance to break boundaries of linear storytelling and land to the shores of postmodernist imaginativeness.”
