Home / Now Showing / FLAMING EARS
A mind-melting laser blast of “cyberdyke” avant-garde science fiction shot on Super 8 and then blown up to 16mm, the dazzlingly grungy, proudly low-rent FLAMING EARS sets its scene in the year 2700 in the burnt-out, all-lesbian city of Asche, where the overlapping tales of three women unfold: comic book artist Spy (Susana Helmayr); pyromaniac pervert performance artist Volly (co-director Pürrer); and utterly amoral, reptile revering alien Nun (co-director Scheirl). Storytelling takes a backseat to visual bravado here in this atmospheric, anarchic film of ornate dialogues and homespun SFX that has drawn comparisons to Lizzie Borden’s BORN IN FLAMES — and to almost nothing else.
