A red head lady lies on a carpet
April 2016
Radical Hardcore
By Dear Mr Quistgaard
Classic tales of romance span centuries, taking place everywhere and anywhere. Arthurian England, Mount Olympus, Ancient Egypt. Now, in Radical Hardcore, it’s a carpet store. Radical Hardcore is an absurdist take on a music video, a love story and an infomercial: Wikipedia on the dancefloor.

The first film might be your only one so you have to love it. There’s no money in it, you spend at least two years of your life on it and then you go on the road to sell it. Your first film is a labour of love so you have to really want to do it.

Yann Demange on his first feature '71 (2014)
