NIGHT IN THE ASYLUM: KUSO by FLYING LOTUS
A new event in conjunction with VERGE FESTIVAL (presented by University of Sydney Union) and supported by Inner West Council, the Sydney Underground Film Festival is screening of the festival's weirdest and most controversial film to date - Kuso! Directed by musical genius Flying Lotus (Steven Ellison), written by demented demi-god David Firth (creator of Salad Fingers) and starring the likes of Hannibal Buress, Tim Heidecker and George Clinton, Kuso presents a mind-bending freak show of a debut feature that officially set the record for walk-outs at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
Fresh from melting minds at SUFF's sold-out Closing Night gala, Kuso loosely frames four interwoven vignettes through the prism of a post-apocalyptic California, after an earthquake has eradicated the majority of humanity and left those who remain scarred and covered in hideous boils. This outrageous fever dream counts influences all the way from David Cronenberg's most gruesome body horrors and David Lynch's groundbreaking animated work to the kind of thing that might air at the latest hours of an Adult Swim programming block. The film will also be preceded by a bunch of cool shorts.
