Hyperlinks, a brand new Sydney movie pageant, has introduced its “internet-focused” programme, that includes a dozen options and a handful of shorts that collectively cross the darkish net, scams, on-line relationship, and shedding your laptop computer.
Ran by Static Imaginative and prescient, an area collective who display hard-to-source gems and movie pageant favourites, Hyperlinks is usually stuffed with Australian premieres. Nonetheless, it kicks off with a semi-cult traditional: Demonlover, the surreal 2002 torture-porn thriller starring Chloë Sevigny and directed by Oliver Assayas (Private Shopper). It’ll be adopted by a DJ set from Slim Set’s Atro, in addition to Static Imaginative and prescient’s personal Sound System.
On the premiere entrance, there’s YouTube montage Lynch: A Historical past, about NFL star Marshawn Lynch’s relationship to the media; a documentary-comedy in regards to the weird world of Artwork Basel by Moonlight‘s co-producer Andrew Hevia; AIDOL, a ‘digital musical’ a couple of pop-star eager to return again with the assistance of an AI songwriter; and Tourism, a highway journey movie about two Japanese micro-influencers who’ve a so-so time in Singapore.
That’s only a few, too: one other spotlight is L.A. Tea Time, about director Sophie Bédard Marcotte’s drive throughout North America to LA to fulfill Miranda July, not that July is aware of it. Plus, Mating, a Swedish documentary created from capturing a pair’s screens, collating their telephone, desktop and Skype communications.
Hyperlinks is on February 21-23 at Marrickville’s Pink Flamingo Cinema, with the total line-up in addition to tickets and multi-passes accessible on their web site.
