Glorious Accidents (Accidentes Gloriosos)
Written and directed together with Argentinian filmmaker Mauro Andrizzi. Shot in black & white over three weeks in the city of Buenos Aires, the film is comprised of nine scenes poetically recounting life-changing experiences of death and transformation. From the story of a photographer who spends his nights trying to capture the perfect car crash on camera, to a man wandering the labyrinths and dark rooms of the city’s gay clubs, searching to find a legendary cock sucker. Accidentes Gloriosos premiered in 2011 at the 68th Venice Film Festival and was awarded a prize for best medium length film. The film aired on National Swedish Television in March 2012.
”Mauro Andrizzi and Marcus Lindeen’s Glorious Accidents, a stylishly shot kaleidoscope of nine weird tales featuring car accidents as instant artworks, a legendary cocksucker, a letter from a doomed polar expedition, etc. At times exuberant, flighty, and flamboyant, and salaciously mischievous throughout, Glorious Accidents is great fun.” – Olaf Möller, Film Comment
