Alongside the film projections, the festival aims to generate unique events and experiences, and to collaborate and involve some of the city’s key cultural organizations. Whilst the Festival is centred around the cinematic experience, and stems from the musical roots of the radio station En Lefko, its aim is to create a multi-cultural platform of artistic expression and to showcase inspiring projects in art, film, music, dance, technology and more.
NEON presents the Pirate Party of the American artist Paul Mccarthy, under the En Lefko Film Festival.

NEON presents Paul McCarthy’s Pirate Party within the context of the En Lefko Film Festival.
Paul McCarthy’s 4-part projection Pirate Party, 2005 is a visual phantasmagoria of a debauched, grotesque orgy involving blood-like ketchup, human limb prosthetics and very weird going-ons…Its protagonists include such caricatured figures as Osama Bin Laden and George Bush carrying out strange acts of captivity and dismemberment in a bloody and gory stage. Not for the faint-hearted, it is a rampant explosion of chaotic creativity set in a world that has gone horribly awry.
Our warmest thanks to the D.Daskalopoulos Collection for the generous loan of the artwork.
