From the extravagant mind of Rouzbeh Rashidi comes an underground epic of personal proportions. Imagine a dark fairytale wood. Imagine the traces of intergalactic natural catastrophes. Imagine a machine for generating sexual perversions on a cosmic scale. Imagine a spectacular attraction that brings you pictures of a far-off world. Imagine: cinema!
TRAILERS unites the most personal and experimental aspects of underground filmmaking with a scope that is as cosmically vast as a science fiction epic. Rashidi’s ongoing exploration into the nature of cinema sees a group of characters adrift in space, each locked into their own sexual rituals while a cataclysm of universal proportions unfolds. Humanity has become a mysterious burlesque show for alien eyes: the gaze of the film camera. This visionary spectacle uses multiple formats and visual textures in weaving an erotic anti-narrative suspended in its own space and time.
An Experimental Film Society production, TRAILERS was shot over one year with the support of an Arts Council of Ireland Project Award.
