As part of the 10th anniversary of Kino Šiška, we’ll host the Ljubljana premiere of the latest feature film by Tomaž Gorkič, a black comedy that features many familiar face from the Slovenian acting and music scene.
The Curse of Valburga is a politically incorrect black comedy feature film with an abundance of violence and blood. Inspired by the horror/slasher films of the late 1970s and 1980s, it aims to stay true to the horror genre of the time, providing its viewers not only with shock and tension, but also fun and entertainment. Amovie from horror fans for horror fans!
The self-taught director and screenwriter Tomaž Gorkič is the author of numerous short films, but gained widespread recognition with the Idyll (2015) feature film, the first true Slovenian horror movie. the film has received numerous Slovenian and international awards, including for Best Picture, Best Male and Female Supporting Roles and Best Set Design at the 18th Festival of Slovenian Film.
