‘DECODER’ and ‘Self Discovery for Social Survival’
DECODER (1984) screens
*THIS* Sunday, 3/21, starting 7PM
FM (FM Einheit of Einstürzende Neubauten) has discovered something incredible in the monotonous ‘muzak’ played through the fast food restaurant H Burger’s speaker system: the tracks are laced with subliminal messages designed to ensure complacency and consumerism. An underground hit from Germany’s punk and new wave infused youth culture of the early 80s, director Muscha’s DECODER blends arresting visuals, urban industrial aesthetics, science fiction, and moments of shocking violence, along side searing commentary on late 20th century consumerist culture. Co-starring punk icon Christiane Felscherinow and William S. Burroughs in a supporting role and featuring music by Soft Cell, The The and Einstürzende Neubauten, this criminally under-seen masterpiece of German weirdness is ready to destroy theaters in a brand new 2k restoration from the original 16mm camera negative.
SELF DISCOVERY FOR SOCIAL SURVIVAL (2019)
screens the following Sunday, 3/28, 7PM
Self Discovery for Social Survival is a collaborative film between record label Mexican Summer and Pilgrim Surf + Supply, a New York-based surf and outdoor brand. Surfers in the film include 7x World Champion Stephanie Gilmore, Creed McTaggart, Ryan Burch and more. SDSS was filmed in Mexico, the Maldives and Iceland in three separate vignettes. The musicians and pro-surfers embark on a journey that combines a symbiotic relationship between music and the waves, the environment, and local culture.
