Date and time
Synopsis

Desmodontinae (lat; vampire bats) is an experimental film installation based on performance art and documentary film experiments on the subject of vampirism presented on three screens. Desmodontinae is based on the story of the first lesbian vampire in literary history, Carmilla of Karnstein, which caused a scandal and mischief in Styria, Austria – the country of origin of Evamaria Schaller. Mythical scenes of blood sucking are the visual starting material for this piece, where surreal alternates with documentary.
