CINEMA UNTER NATIONAL

At Cinema unter National movies are not disclosed prior beforehand.
You have to trust the judgment of the curator, who merely promises
it’ll be a movie you may not have heard of but one you’ll not easily
forget.

A short discussion is facilitated at the end where people share their
perspectives/interpretations of the movie, and some engaging trivia
from director’s life and his unique technical style are also brought
to the fore.

There are no cliques and you’re encouraged to participate in the
discussion and interact with others. We give as much thought to
curating a thriving community of cinephiles here in the city, as to
the selection of movies that have the power to penetrate through to
any human soul regardless of one's specific biases and circumstances.

DEPRAVED

US. 2019

DIR: L. FESSENDEN

The legend of Frankenstein gets a provocative modern update in the stylishly disturbing new film from indie horror master Larry Fessenden. Suffering from PTSD following his stint as an army medic, Henry (David Call) now works feverishly in his Brooklyn laboratory to forget the death he witnessed overseas by creating life in the form of a man cobbled together from body parts. After procuring a brain from an unwitting victim, his creation—Adam (Alex Breaux)—is born. But it soon seems that giving life to Adam was the easy part; teaching him how to live in a dark and troubled world may be perilous. A complex, emotionally shattering tale about what it means to be human, Depraved brings Mary Shelley's immortal fable fully into the 21st century.

Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies: GOD OF THE OUTSIDERS: SATAN IN LITERATURE, CULTURE, AND ENTERTAINMENT—OLD MYTH AND NEW INSIGHT

There exists a little-understood counter tradition in Western life that often goes under the easily misconstrued term Satanism. In this intellectually stimulating and probing evening, Mitch Horowitz (“solid gold” – David Lynch) explores the interplay between our primeval understandings of the Dark Side and how Satan is reflected back to us in myth, parable, legend, culture, horror, music, and fashion. Tracing the earliest origins of humanity’s conception of an opposing force in the Eastern and Western worlds, Mitch explores some of history’s most bracing and provocative interpretations of the Satanic—from the work of Milton and the Romantic poets (William Blake’s The Marriage of Heaven and Hell; Lord Byron’s Cain) to more recent fiction and nonfiction literary efforts (Arturo Pérez-Reverte’s The Club Dumas; Anton LaVey’s The Satanic Bible; Michael Aquino’s The Diabolicon), and examines how even some of our most recognized supernatural films (Devil’s Advocate; Rosemary’s Baby; The Ninth Gate) enunciate Satanic themes with penetrating classical validity. In the process, Mitch strips away historical and cultural preconceptions, misunderstandings, and shibboleths to open an entirely fresh window on the intellectual and cultural idea of the Satanic in Western history and contemporary life. He shines a new light into ancient myths, canonical literature, legends, and pop culture to trace out an authentic outsider tradition of Satanic thought. Join us for a challenging and eye-opening evening. You will come away with an entirely new conception of a “familiar devil.”

OVERWHELM THE SKY

US. 2018

DIR: D. KREMER

"An Existential Epic Neo-Noir," loosely adapted from Charles Brockden Brown's 1799 novel Edgar Huntly, or Memoirs of a Sleepwalker, Overwhelm the Sky tells the story of Edgar "Eddie" Huntly, an east coast radio personality who moves to San Francisco to marry Thea, the sister of his best friend Neil, a successful entrepreneur. Shortly before Eddie's arrival, Neil is found murdered in Golden Gate Park in what the police surmise was a simple mugging gone awry. As the sullen Eddie steps in as interim host of his old friend Dean's late-night talk-radio show, he obsessively makes regular visits to the forested spot where Neil's corpse was found. One such visit unleashes a chain of unpredictable events that sends Eddie snooping into the life of a sleepwalking drifter with a mysterious past.

KUSAMA: INFINITY

US. 2018

DIR: H. LENZ

An infinitely amazing, thoughtful, compassionate and deeply profound look at one of the most influential and unsung artists of the modern era. Director Heather Lenz captures the eccentric essence of this fascinating figure, while also making a bigger statement about overlooked female artists. It creates a compelling and shocking case for how Kusama's vision influenced greats like Warhol, but how she got none of the credit. The exclusive footage Lenz caught of Kusama is amazing and rare.

KUSAMA explores artist Yayoi Kusama's journey from a conservative upbringing in Japan to her brush with fame in America during the 1960s (where she rivaled Andy Warhol for press attention) and concludes with the international fame she has finally achieved within the art world. Now in her 80s, Kusama has spent the last 30 years living in a mental institution in Japan.

This film demands to be seen because Kusama demands to be known.
