      Kin-dza-dza!
      1986 / USSR/ 135'
      Georgiy Daneliya

      Kin-dza-dza! is one of the strangest artefacts in all of Soviet cinema. It‚Äôs a science fiction satire in which Vladmir and Gedevan, a gruff Russian construction worker and a Georgian student, find themselves accidentally transported to Pluke, a barren desert-world with a barbaric, bureaucratic society. Gradually realising that they are not in a ‚Äėcapitalist country‚Äô, the two men begin a long and farcical voyage home that more closely resembles the theatre of the absurd than it does any preconceived notion of cinematic science fiction. The men befriend two locals, Bi and Wef, and are soon busking their way across Pluke and becoming ensnared in various misadventures that stem from the planet‚Äôs bizarre and unbendable social rules, and its two-tier social structure of ruling Chatlanians and subservient Patsaks.


      Heart of a Dog 
      1988 / USSR / 113'
      Vladimir Bortko

      An adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov’s dystopian and comic sci-fi novel Sobache Serdtse about a Soviet experiment of turning a dog into a human, set in Moscow in 1925, not long after the Revolution of 1917.
      Old Prof. Preobrazhensky and his young colleague Dr. Bormental inserted the human's hypophysis into a dog's brain. Couple of weeks later the dog named Sharik became a slovenly and narcissistic incarnation of the New Soviet Man.

      Testament
      John Akomfrah
      1988 / Ghana / 88 min
       
      Preceeding the visit of Dr. Edward George, member of Black Audio Film Collective (1982-1998), we present Testament, the first narrative feature film of the collective. Link to the event / on Facebook
       
      In Testament, the condition of the postcolony is embodied in the figure of activist turned television reporter Abena who returns to contemporary¬†Ghana, for the first time since the 1966 coup that ended President Kwame Nkrumah‚Äôs experiment in African socialism. Adrift in a ‚Äėwar zone of¬†memories‚Äô in the words of the film‚Äôs subtitle, Abena is caught in the tension between public history and private memory Testament is¬†characterised by a depopulated frame and the deliberately cold look that evoke an emotional landscape of postcolonial trauma.
       
       
       
      The Unity of All Things
      Alexander Craver & Daniel Schmidt
      2013 / USA, Switzerland, China/ 97 min
       
      The Unity of All Things is a work of experimental science fiction about the construction of a particle accelerator beneath the U.S./Mexico border. It is grappling with questions of self and other by employing particle physics as a metaphor for the morphing nature of human identity. The film engages the utopian impulses of the genre, not through the imagining of another world, but through the rendering of this world as Other. All subjects are treated as alien, or as radical others, who search for, or advance different ideological, psychological, or sexual ideals of belonging. Subjects oscillate between the contemplation of past societal traumas and idealizations of futurity that refuse to synthesize or resolve, but instead reveal a troubling satire of the present.

      The stuff of stars has come alive
       
      A Visit To The Underground Cities Of Mars
      UNARIUS
      1977/ USA/ 58"

      We'll go visit the underground cities of Mars, as imaginated and documented by an actual psychic experience. It shows for a more embodied approach to the SF imagination and reconsiders the trope of the guest, the visitor, the witness as experience. We will be guided by Uriel and her students of the UNARIUS academy of science, an UFO-religion still active today. 


      The Co-Star Tapes
      Compiled by Miranda July
      1998-2002/ USA/ Var.
       
      Then we head to scroll through The Co-Star Tapes, a series of videos compiled and distributed by Miranda July in the 90s. Let's look at the co-stars of the sky. It's a feminist, queer sky; a betaville for the future.

      The selection includes:

      How The Miracle of Masturbation Saved Me From Becoming a Teenage Space Alien - Dulcie Clarkson
      A coming-of-age story you've never seen before.

      The Amateurist - Miranda July 
      A ‚Äúprofessional‚ÄĚ woman monitors an ‚Äúamateur‚ÄĚ woman (both played by July) via video surveillance, as she has for the last four and a half years. She has never had direct contact with the amateur, but creates a sense of communion through numbers, knobs and careful language.

      Transeltown - Myra Paci 
      Dante transported to Times Square.




      NOTE: The event is open for limited public. Feel free to invite some friends. 
      Before the screening at 7.30pm, around 6pm we will cook some vegetarian pasta and eat together. 
       
      WELCOME!

      Crimes of the future
      David Cronenberg
      1970 / USA / 70 min
       
      Crimes of the Future details the wanderings of Tripod, sometime director of a dermatological clinic called the House of Skin, who is searching for his mentor, the mad dermatologist Antoine Rouge. Rouge has disappeared following a catastrophic plague resulting from cosmetic products, which has killed the entire population of sexually mature women. A bio-political Science Fiction informed by the anti-psychiatry movement mixed with a bit of Ballard and Burroughs and a lot of early Cronenberg imagination. It is curious in many ways - one of which being the fact that no sound was taken on location and the experimental use of foley that resulted from this.
       
      Per Aspera Ad Astra (Through The Thorns To The Stars)
      1st part
      Richard Viktorov
      1981 / USSR / 75 min
       
      Neeya is a striking-looking anthropoid found barely alive in an abandoned space craft... Brought to earth by the Russian space crew, she is nursed back to health and memory of her planet Dessa and its ecological collapse. When Neeya's benefactor Sergey joins the crew of an environmental rescue mission, she sneaks on board and convinces Sergey to change course. Once they have landed on the planet of Dessa, they begin improving the atmosphere and water while simultaneously struggling against the supporters of an evil dwarf Turan and a creepy biomass that has escaped the laboratory…
