    Revision, filmed in August 2007, is the second part of Brienen's Apocalypse Trilogy and is set for release in spring of 2008.
    Brienen's 9th feature film is set in a futuristic world, where terrorist attacks rule daily life, forced chip implantation is commonplace and government control is routinely exerted through manipulation of the media.
    Traci (Eva Dorrepaal), an ex-model, feels lost and confused. Whereas once she believed in God and looked to Him as a source of inner calm and peace, she simply believes no longer and tries desperately to fill the void caused by her lack of faith.
    Meanwhile, her husband, Charlie (Clayton Nemrow), persuades her to transgress the 6th Commendment (5th among Roman Catholics) and commit murder. She picks up a random guy in a bar and brings him home. Soon, however, reality ad fantasy become intertwined in an indecipherable web of hallucinations and mental chaos. Haunted by her inner demon, Vince Destructo (played by Jacob Dove Basker), Traci spirals headlong toward madness.

    Official premiere I'D LIKE TO DIE A THOUSAND TIMES

    In Berlin in the BROTFABRIK cinema, APRIL 26TH 07 till May 9th 07, 10PM/22.00Uhr.
    Germany 2007 – 90 Minutes, English spoken.

    The seventh feature film of Brienen in five years is a wild roadtrip through Berlin nights, where two couples explore the mechanics of 'killing'. Leading roles are for Clayton Nemrow, Esther Verkaaik, Eva Dorrepaal and Sebastian Suba. We're proud to announce Shaun Lawton, who played next to Isabelle Adjani in Zulawski's masterpiece Possession, co-stars in this controversial film. Bärbel Schleker and René Ifrah make the cast complete.
    The extreme weather conditions (40 Degrees Celsius during daytime) added an extra touch to the already apocalyptic story. Sweat and blood as crème-de-menthe of a deadly cocktail that includes champagne, sex and cocaine. Comedy turns into horror. Another masterpiece of Herr Brienen, recently quoted in TIP magazine as one of Berlin's most influential filmmakers.

    Last Performance is chosen for the official selection (specials) of the 26th
    edition of the Dutch Film Festival. A feature film with Eva Dorrepaal, Tomas
    Spencer, Vincent Bagnall, Esther Verkaaik, Rene Ifrah, Volker Behrens and many
    others, will have its world premiere in The Netherlands, who would have thought!
    The festival, that will be opened by Queen Beatrix, takes place from September
    27th til October 6th 2006 in Utrecht.

    A sensational fact. We are the first, truly independent production that is
    accepted by the festival since six years. It's also a sign of recognition for
    Edwins work, that because of the non-comercial value- always was seen as
    somewhat difficult.

    The first screening date for Last Performance (which will be our official
    premiere) will be Thursday, September 28th at 22.15hrs., at Studio in Utrecht.

    For screening dates and reservations, you can visit the Festival at:

    Guerrilla filmmaking... I just recovered from another Edwin Brienen film shot during the heat in July. Hardly any sleep nor food in July and August. But so much fun... The summer film is called "I'd like to die a thousand times". A cruel fairy tale with new age influences. I play a very interesting role, Lisa. Lisa repressed her sexually abusive childhood and that catches up with her. Then she turns in a confused Ophelia-like killing monster/ machine. Only humans, because she is vegetarian. Just like Leatherface, her idol. Now, this is only a side line. The film is about two couples. It's basically a road movie, although we won't see very much of the road. Comedy turns into horror.


     July 22, 2006

    "Return From The Past" is a relationship comedy about two women and a man, viciously well written by Dave Gold. All characters are outrageous, full of bullshit, escapism and denial. The first cut will be aired Saturday July 22nd at 7 PM, EDT, on the Dave Gold Show. You can see it on Channel 57 or 110 in Manhattan, New York. If you live in Europe, you can see it at 01.00 hrs in the morning July 23rd on your computer. Go to www.mnn.org and click on Channel 57.

    John Waters meets Fritz Lang! The most bizarre cinema experience of the year.


    A film by Edwin Brienen Hysteria tells the story of a woman, Lara (Eva Dorrepaal), trapped in her own nightmare. After being raped by a masked man, Lara ends up in the castle of a degenerated family and soon becomes the object of torture and humiliation. Desperately she tries to find a way to escape her own dreams...

    The film Hysteria is a political horror that deals with topics sucs as mind manipulation and false reality. For sure, Hysteria is the most bizarre cinema experience of the year. A dark black and white world that looks as if Richard Kern remakes Addams Family. Or John Waters collaborates with Fritz Lang. And with a haunting electro/industrial/classical soundtrack by Hanno Hinkelbein (Null Records/Aeox), IO and Johann Sebastian Bach.

    April 27th 2006:

    I would like to invite you to the screening of "Stars and Bars", a short film produced for the 48 Hour Film project. The competition took place during the weekend of April 21-23rd. The objective of the competition was to make a 7 minute film in the time frame of 48 hours. This required writing, shooting, and editing in 48 hours. Because they didn't know what they were going to write, the actors had to be on standby, ready to race to the location, just like in the Army. They called me in at 8 am on a Saturday morning for a small part and it was fun, although it wasn't as chaotic as I had hoped for!

    The screening will take place:

    Thursday April 27th at 9:15pm
    Landmark's Sunshine Cinema
    143 E. Houston St. New York
    Tickets: $10

    Our team's name is New Liberty Entertainment and the movie is called "Stars and Bars".

    Expected release Last Performance, Brienen’s American production: October 2006.

    Last Performance, the fourth and latest film from award-winning European director Edwin Brienen, is set in the tumultuous New York theatre world.

    Julia (Eva Dorrepaal), a European actress who relocated to New York to try and make the big time, stars in an avant-garde theatre play, directed by the eccentric Magda (Esther Eva Verkaaik). Inspired by obsessive philosophers such as Nietzsche, Schopenhauer and LaVey - "Forget the weak, the virtuous ones and the compassionate ones" – Magda explores the dark side of life.
    Julia's co-star, herein, is Cooper (Tomas Sinclair Spencer) who has an abusive relationship with the sexually frustrated Tom (Vincent Bagnall). Tom, unable to accept his homosexuality, in turn exploits Julia for his own sexual adventures.

    Cooper, enraged by jealousy, sets out for revenge and his actions, herein, trigger an inexorable wave of disintegration and misery. Soon, fact and fiction become indistinguishable as Julia too becomes the author of her own demise.
    Last Performance is inspired by New York avant-garde and underground scene of the early, early eighties and is suffused with the spirit of the icons of that period such as Andy Warhol, Yoko Ono, Laurie Anderson, Klaus Nomi, Lydia Lunch and Diamanda Galas.
    This film is projected for European release in December of 2005.
