SCREENING OF MICHAEL LASOFF’S BLACK COMEDY FILM:
“SALINGER’S TWO DARK MUSES”
Michael Lasoff writes, directs, shoots and edits his work. He is an American ex-pat living in Haarlem since 1973. Originally coming to study painting at the famous art school Ateliers ’63 in Haarlem, Lasoff remained to follow a successful career with many shows in Holland and Europe. In 2012 he stopped painting and jumped into learning filmmaking. “Salinger’s Two Dark Muses” is his fifth feature film, a black comedy exploring the insane world of amateur poets.
“Vincent Salinger, an edgy uninspired poet, fumes at being spurned by his publisher. Suspecting his work and life mean nothing, Vincent seeks inspiration. A new and quasi-demonic friend introduces Vincent to a clever East-European escort girl who thinks up a literary hoax for success but at the high price of Vincent losing his integrity and identity. Things become more complicated when a rival muse falls in love with Vincent and Vincent’s hoax appears out of nowhere to haunt him.” The film is two hours long, is in English with Dutch subtitles.
There will be a pause halfway through the film for refreshments. The filmmaker will be present to unofficially chat or answer questions after the show.
Admission is €10,- per person.
