Maximum Shame (2010)

‘Maximum Shame’ is a surreal minimalist experimental art-house work a genre fusion of comedy, horror, musical and science fiction employing fetish imagery and a non-traditional cinematic narrative in which its characters are used as chess pieces in an apocalyptic tale about human desperation. It was shot primarily on the location of an abandoned warehouse in London, England on a mere budget of an estimated €9,000 with for the most part a wardrobe of black leather S & M clothing and dental restraints for its cast of characters. Written and directed by Spanish avant-garde underground filmmaker and playwright Carlos Atanes it was nominated for a Best Feature Movie award at the 2010 BUT (B Movie, Underground and Trash) Film Festival, Breda, The Netherlands.
