Its also In- spired by the Belgian fantasy literature such as Jean Ray – Exploitation films – the French « Nouvelle Vague » - Japanese activist cinema of the sixties – the Rock &amp; Roll and due to this little thing that shaped me since childhood : the belgian attitude...</p> <p>  </p> <p> To make it short : the American dream, or rather the American nightmare, view from the side of Euroland.</p> <p>  </p> <p> My encounter with Wild Dee, the main actor, was crucial - not only because we share the same literary and cine- matic universe but furthermore due to our comparable musical experience ; both of us were singers in iconic bands of the 80s in Belgium, respectively for him, “<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmWfxT1KmNw" target="_blank">The Wild Ones</a>” and for me, “<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzcWJ5jBK1E" target="_blank">Marine</a>” (70/81 – 3 singles on Les Disques du Crépuscule) and “<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbf12xVemuY" target="_blank">La Muerte</a>” (84/94 - 6 albums on Pias).</p> <p>  </p> <p> The main intention of the project is to recapture the spirit and codes of the ultra- violent exploitation films but also those of the literary movies of Godard. You’ll understand, I love the excentric cinema, wild, dreamlike, delirious, low budget, made of sex, violence and debauchery.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Dago-kisskiss-2" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/25756/DAGO-KISSKISS-2.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <em><strong>Shot in Super 16 and Super 8 color, night ambiance</strong></em>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The use of Kodak hypersensitive film roll allows to shoot in minimalist technical conditions.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The crew is reduced to 5 people to ensure maximum mobility. In contrast to the appearance deliberately “trash”, the photography - inspired by <em><strong>William Klein, Jacob Holdt and Tobe Hooper</strong></em> – is particularly smart.</p> <p>  </p> <p> If the film takes place nowadays, it waves between documentary and fiction, switching from past to present.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The role of the music is important, the composition is original and draws inspiration from <strong>François de Roubaix, Lalo Shiffrin, John Carpenter, Michel Colombier. </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> The cast is <em><strong>Wild Dee Borra, Philippe Genion, Jean Biche, Lise Lejeune</strong></em>, <em><strong>Georges Napalm</strong></em>...</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Bouli Lanners </strong>well known as a director and actor for his movie ”<strong><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Pc1RJE0yUU" target="_blank">ELDORADO</a></strong>” participates to the project.</p> <p> A third of the film is already shot and edited.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Dago-kisskiss-1" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/25753/DAGO-KISSKISS-1.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> INSPIRATION</p> <p> Roger Corman - Lee Marvin  -  Woody Woodpecker - Koji Wakamatsu   Tina Aumont -   Jean-Luc Godard - Vince Taylor - Blast of Silence</p> <p> Psycho Morriconne  - William Burroughs - Lucio Fulci - Philip K Dick - Lalo Shiffrin - Harry Crews - Iceberg Slim – Bruce Lee</p> <p> Florida Bolkan - MC 5 - Cassavetes  Henri : portrait of a serial killer - The Sex Pistols - J.K Huysmans - Lee Van Cleef</p> <p> Beat Generation - Elio Petri – Docteur Albert Hofmann - Road Runner &amp; Coyote – Charles Bukowski</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Dago-kisskiss-3" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/25757/DAGO-KISSKISS-3.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><em><strong>PRIX COURT METRAGE - </strong></em></u><strong><a href="https://vimeo.com/63659906" target="_blank">DAGO CASSANDRA</a></strong><u><em><strong> ( 2000 )</strong></em></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> 2000 -”Best Direction” Cammy Award - Toronto Worlwide Short Film Festival – <strong>Toronto, Canada</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> 2000 - Nomination for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences - <strong>Los Angeles, USA</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> 1999 - Media 10/10 - Prix de la direction photographique – <strong>Namur, Belgique</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Dago-kisskiss-4" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/25761/DAGO-KISSKISS-4.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Dago-kisskiss-5" src="https://kkbb-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/project_image/image/28684/DAGO-KISSKISS-5.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> OTHER REALISATIONS by Marco Laguna :  1999 à 2009 VITALIC ( Clip ) - MY FRIEND DARIO</p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/39886284" width="540"></iframe></p> <p> RINOCEROSE ( Clip ) - La Guitaristic House Organisation</p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="405" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/40997847" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> GHINZU ( clip ) - Do you read me ?</p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="405" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/uCostz2euvs?wmode=opaque&amp;feature=oembed" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> HULK ( clip ) - Intoxicated</p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="405" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/40997846" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> MEURTE ( with Richard23 / Front 242 )</p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="405" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/39703389" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> THE DEVIL ON LSD</p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="432" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/38453058" width="540"></iframe></p>
