Documentary film “Love Surfing” featuring Gerrit now screening in Belgium

Friday 24th January 2014 will see the first Belgian screening of "Love Surfing", a short documentary film which is capturing an online dating experience.

Gerrit (Illusion of Purity) contributed to this film with a short testimony and an extract of a poem. The film is a DocNomads production and was directed by Egyptian filmmaker Theresa Khalil, about whose many earlier projects you can read all on !

The screening will take place Friday 24th January at 19:00 at Pianofabriek CulturenCentrum, Fortstraat 35, 1060 St-Gillis (Brussels). It is one of the 13 short films that will be presented during the event, all films in a different language. The total event will last until 21:00. Fans of documentaries or those who wish to see Illusion of Purity’s brief appearance on the big screen, know where to go. Entrance is free of charge.

Illusion of Purity thanks Theresa Khalil for allowing this contribution, and hopefully those who have supported the poetry project so far will be present. Apologies for the short notice.

About illusionofpurity

I am the founding member and only permanent member of the Illusion of Purity project. The project deals with life with psychological problems such as autism, manic depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety disorder, ... and tries to use art to break the taboo about these disorders. Too many people suffer in silence because of the taboo and the many wrong stereotypes. Using art and speeches as a weapon against these taboos and stereotypes, this project aims to raise awareness about the true life with psychological problems. Additionally, a more philosophical and political undertone may appear throughout the project, although the main focus is mental health and the surrounding taboos. I myself have Asperger Syndrome, OCD/anxiety disorder and suffer from unipolar depression. Activism at this moment consists of mainly (but not solely) speeches and poetry. This may increase to include other activities in the future too. The project is based in Spain at the moment, my personal origins lie in Belgium.
