Our short film retrospective returns in 2012 with a special screening dedicated to the films of Brazilian director Dennison Ramalho. Following in the diabolical footsteps of his mentor Brazilian horror legend Jose Mojica Marins (aka Coffin Joe), Ramalho has crafted a series of phenomenal short films that delve deep into the darkness of humanity and have garnered accolades at film festivals all over the world. His films offer a window into an extraordinarily dark and often disturbing world, where innocence and purity are eclipsed by violence, sex and palpable evil. In 2008, he was instrumental in the production of the closing chapter of the Coffin Joe trilogy, Embodiment of Evil, co-writing the script with Mojica and attracting production finance, and his own directorial career continues to ascend, with news emerging of his debut feature The Hell Within, currently in development.

We are thrilled to welcome Dennison Ramalho to Celluloid Screams to present this retrospective of his films (screening together for the first time in the UK) and to participate in a Q&A after the screening.

Warning: Contains scenes that some viewers may find disturbing.

This screening is presented in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University.
