PINK FLAMINGO CINEMA Presents: Fatal Pulse
Pink Flamingo Cinema, Static Vision and Film Club are proud to present the Australian premiere of the latest work of psycho-mastery from true counter-cultural auteur Damon Packard (Foxfur, Reflections of Evil), FATAL PULSE (aka Night Pulse aka Untitled Yuppie Fear Thriller).
Though off-brand James Spader douche-bag Trent DuPont may control the film industry – and the American government – all his wealth can’t stop him from being sucked into an apocalyptic, psychedelic nightmare of pop culture, popular uprising and puppetry in FATAL/NIGHT PULSE (aka Untitled Yuppie Fear Thriller), a bonafide, deep-fried, neo-noir nightmare.
An avant-garde archivist, Packard creates complex loops out of cultural detritus, jamming them into dream logic narratives populated by paranoid celebrity lookalikes, off-beat catchphrases, wanders through the menacing streets of night-time Los Angeles and seemingly random acts of violence. In FATAL/NIGHT PULSE, Packard also tackles the world’s most pressing questions, attempting to get to the bottom of capitalist Illuminati mind-control, the corporate takeover that’s destroyed our world and just exactly what happened in the early ’90s.
A film like no other, FATAL PULSE is a nugget of pure cine-weirdo gold, straight from the murky depths of independent cinema’s real underground. Have you checked your pulse lately?
After struggling for years to self-finance his film career – often living in cars and tents – Packard claims to have received a large inheritance, which helped him complete Reflections of Evil (2002): a long treatise on contemporary American paranoia which made it onto the Film Comment Editor’s List of the Best Films of 2005. Packard gained notoriety after he sent DVDs of the film to thousands of celebrities and made 23,000 professionally-pressed copies of the film available to the public for free. Packard is known for his highly pessimistic view of the contemporary film industry post-1979, often lamenting that directors have lost creative control of their work and vision has been sacrificed for profit.
Doors at 7:30pm, movie from 8pm. Tickets $10 presale and on the door ($8 concession). If you are unwaged or otherwise unable to afford a ticket, please DM Pink Flamingo Cinema or Static Vision.
The Pink Flamingo Cinema exists on the land of the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora Nation. Sovereignty was never ceded.
