Diet Soda Cineclub + Matchbox Cineclub Gregg Araki’s Teen Apocalypse Trilogy CCA
Thursday 26 September 2019
A rare opportunity to see Gregg Araki’s queer cinema trilogy of Totally Fucked Up (1993), The Doom Generation (1995) and Nowhere (1997). A kaleidoscope of pop culture, nihilism, disenfranchised youth and… reptilianaliens.
Totally Fucked Up 6pm
Told in fifteen vignettes, this pseudo-documentary film chronicles the lives of six queer adolescents dealing with sex, love, homophobia, depression and relationships as they come of age in 1990s LA. A heartfelt, anarchic portrayal of teenageangst.
The Doom Generation 7.30 p.m.
Troubled teens Jordan (James Duval) and Amy (Rose McGowan) pick up an adolescent drifter, Xavier (Jonathon Schaech) and together the trio head out on a surreal sex and violence-filled road trip through the dark apocalyptic landscape of America, encountering sinister strangers claiming to be from Amy’spast.
Nowhere 9.15 p.m.
Famously described as ‘Beverley Hills 90210 on acid’ this outrageous star-studded teen flick follows the lives of a group of hedonistic teens. Dark (James Duval), his girlfriend Mel (Rachel True) and her sarcastic lover Lucifer (Kathleen Robertson) plan on attending the wildest party of the year, but things take a strange turn and they find themselves facing a series of increasingly bizarre occurrences, including alien abduction, murder and teenage heartbreak, set against an apocalyptic, candy coloured backdrop of 1990sLA.
The screening will be captioned. This event is priced according to a sliding scale. Find out what you should pay.
