Spirits of the air, gremlins of the clouds – 21st September, 2017

Spirits of the air, gremlins of the clouds (1989) dir. Alex Proyas, English language, 93min.

The first feature by Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City, Gods of Egypt) is strange in concept (a containment drama set in a wide-open desert), casting (three largely unknown friends of the director) and story (in the post-apocalypse world, human flight is considered a myth) – but breathtaking in execution. Largely unknown, distributed nowhere but in Japan on VHS (where our copy is from), it doesn’t even have a trailer (though, for some reason there is a music video, see below) this Australian obscurity is a lost classic of weird, weird film.

Location: Melbourne Anarchist Club, 62 St Georges Rd, Northcote.

Time: Doors at 7pm for a 7:30 start, 17th August 2017.

Admission is free, wheelchair access is available, crucifixes optional.
