RoXY (2022)- Directed by Juha van 't Zelfde
RoXY (2022) is a collage film by Juha van ’t Zelfde that shows how the revolutionary actions of dada, Cobra and Provo influenced club RoXY. After its opening in 1987, the club is widely celebrated for introducing house music to the Netherlands, and creating a home for numerous creative communities. In 1999 it burnt down after the funeral of its founder Peter Giele.
The film links Johan Huizinga’s 1938 book Homo Ludens (“playing man”) to postwar movements of art, protest and civil disobedience. It shows rare documentary footage of radical cultural moments such as Dylaby, New Babylon and Love Ball, and features early electronic dance music from Virgo, Future Sound of London and The KLF.
Dustin (2020) - Directed by Naïla Guiguet
In an abandoned warehouse, a crowd is dancing to 145 BPM techno music as one. Among them is Dustin, a young transgender person and their crew: Felix, Raya and Juan. As the night draws on, collective hysteria morphs into sweet melancholy, and euphoria into a yearning for tenderness.
