From the Publisher


More than 10 years ago I started touring sleazy little cinemas with a 16mm print of my film Nekromantik.

I got to see a lot of different countries that way.

Today a ‘new generation’ can watch a 35mm blow-up print of Nekromantik on a big screen. Other things have changed too. I now do ‘lectures’ in arthouses and universities., and in the film schools that turned me down when I was trying to go there to study 10 years ago.

It was always strange to see how people viewed the film, how intense their reactions were – and still are – towards this little movie that was made with no money at all (and no script either).

I earned myself a reputation… the kind of reputation where people give you funny looks.

I doubt that a film like Nekromantik would be possible today. It would be impossible to find good people to work for nothing on a film as ‘big’, for a start. I know I wouldn’t do it for free.

It is ironic that this book is published in Great Britain, where, because of censorship laws, most of my films are not available. Thanks to David Kerekes for at least telling you about them.
