SPIRITS OF THE AIR, GREMLINS OF THE CLOUDS M
From the visually audacious imagination of Alex Proyas comes his rarely screened debut feature that is part Luis Buñuel and part Sergio Leone meets Mad Max.
In a post-apocalyptic desert wasteland, siblings Felix and Betty live on a diet of baked beans. Felix’s impulsiveness and obsession with flying means he is now in a wheelchair while Betty is adamant that a demon is to blame for their woes. Into their world walks Norm, shattering their family bond.
This distinctly one-of-a-kind film was the feature debut of Alex Proyas, the Australian director who went on to make The Crow and Dark City (MIFF 2017). Featuring AFI Award-nominated visuals and an ARIA-nominated musical score, this is a very Australian vision of the world gone truly upside down. Full of madcap inventions and colourful flights of fancy that are now enhanced by its digital restoration, this is a chance to discover one of the hidden gems of the 1980s.
Restoration by Roar Digital.
