Liquid Sky with director Slava Tsukerman in person

The Cinefamily host director Slava Tsukerman for a screening of this 1983 cult sci-fi film. From the website:

"One of the coolest, funniest and freakiest distillations of the '80s post-punk underground, Liquid Sky is pure madness, blending drugs, UFOs, death by orgasm and a cacophony of searing synths into a jagged neon time capsule that still thrills. In a dual role, Anne Carlisle plays Margaret (a damaged lesbian fashion model) and Jimmy (an arrogant gay junkie fashion model), who collide in NYC's robotic New Wave netherworld. As well, aliens arrive in a pint-sized flying saucer to extract the lifeforce from the human orgone; landing on Margaret's roof, they vaporize her many lovers in a dogpile of kaleidoscopic nuttiness. Russian emigré director Slava Tsukerman, himself out of place in the alien world of the '80s Lower East Side arthole, has big fun piling on the primitive video abstractions, fractured music and overwrought melodrama in order to deliver a skewering satire of a weird, weird world."
