Last night I went to the opening of Re-Possessed which is a thematic segment in this year's Cyprus Film Festival: "Cyprus Film Days 2011", curated by Dr Markos Hadjioannou (film theorist) and Loizos Olympios (visual artist).

This segment explores the concept of possession in contemporary cinema from a variety of aspects, spanning from that which occurs by the supernatural, to the possession by one's passion and desire. 

Last night's screenings were Peter Tscherkassky's 1999 short film Outer Space (impressively disturbing if I may say) and Hans-Christian Schmid's Requiem from 2006. 

The video above was created by Ioannis Papaloizou. For more info on Re-Possessed go to the official event page.
