Eliane Lima’s

LEONORA

“A dark drama of sexual sorcery and crippled creatures in the throes of a primitive passion that defies decency! A shadowy work of naked fury that will plunge the viewer into a cesspoolof sinister slime and shocking shame! Experience the excrement of Satanic savagery as it smears across the screen in a rage of voluminous vitriol. A work of brutal beauty and torrid terrors that will titillate the timid with its vision of a world gone mad with sensual secretions. Experience the wetness and rejoice in its recuperative re-birth!”

— George Kuchar

About the filmmaker:

The San Francisco Art Institute’s poster for MFA Film and Video Screening event.

Eliane Lima is from Sao Paulo, Brazil.  In the early ’90s, she met Brazilian philosopher Claudio Ulpiano, became his student and friend, and decided to leave the music business in which she was engaged at the time. In 2007, she went back to school, attending Binghamton University in upstate New York, where she received a BA in Cinema. She is in her second semester of  the MFA Film program at San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco, CA.

Her film Djinn was included in film festivals in New York, Los Angeles and Cuba, and recently was an official selection in Sacramento International Film Festival with a screening at the Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, CA. Djinn won two prizes in Los Angeles, The Best Student Short Film and Audience Choice at 2010 HollyShorts Film Festival; it was screened at the 2011 Liverpool Biennial, UK, and represented Brazil in the International Art Event, Identity Exchange 2011, at SFAI.

Leonora, a 6 minute, super 8 and 16mm, color and BW film, was inspired by the film Begotten and George Kuchar’s class, and was produced with the support of SFAI Film Department and an Eastman Product Grant from Eastman Kodak Company.

Lima is working on a trilogy, Fantastic Spaces in Cinema, inspired by “The Garden of the Forking Paths,” by Jorge Luis Borges, that includes studies of Dario Argento’s Suspiria, David Lynch’s Inland Empire, and Jan Svankmajer’s Alice.

Her short film Albertine is “on the side” while she finalizes support.
