The festival team are still in full-on selection mode but are happy to announce the first two official picks for the line-up this year. The full programme will be available at the end of March.
ALIEN ADDICTION. (Dir. Shae Sterling, New Zealand, 2018, 90mins. Starring Thomas Sainsbury and Jimi Jackson)
Imagine Cheech and Chong hanging out in Middle Earth with two blue aliens and you get some flavour of this hilarious, outrageous movie. Set in small town New Zealand, Riko (Jimi Jackson) is living an unextraordinary life of drink, drugs and junk food when two aliens crash-land near his house. Together they develop an intergalactic relationship of epic proportions as they try to discover the ‘best shit in the universe.’ This is as good a ride as Galaxy Quest or Men in Black with no holds barred humour.
FONOTUNE: AN ELECTRIC FAIRYTALE. (Dir. Fint, Germany/Japan, 2018, 75mins. Starring Kiki Sukezane, Kazushi Watanabe)
The end of the world is nigh and legendary rocker Guitar Wolf Seiji is due to play at the last ever concert. A group of drifters sets out to witness the performance – they journey far, the radio they listen to is far-out… Fonotune is unexpected art for your eyes and ears. This Japanese delicacy is a visual and audio feast – as if Daft Punk had been force-fed THX 1138 or Andy Warhol had directed Mad Max.
