Arstploitation Films Acquires Bizarre German Comedy 'Der Bunker'

Artsploitation Films has secured the U.S. rights to “Der Bunker,” a German comedy that premiered at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival.

“Der Bunker,” the debut feature from Nikias Chryssos, is a dark comedy set entirely within a windowless bunker housing a husband, wife and their learning-challenged son. A young graduate student soon enters the bunker to tutor the son…whom the parents are grooming to be president of the United States.

Artsploitation’s president Ray Murray described the film as, “So peculiar yet amazingly memorable,” and said, “I felt we had to have this odd comedy. Reminiscent of the works of John Waters, David Lynch and Luis Buñuel, Chryssos creates a reality where conventional story-telling, and its accompanying logic, is left outside the steps, it will be a pleasure to present it to unsuspecting audiences!”
