I’ve not seen this film yet but am intrigued enough to blog about it. Described by indieWIRE as “an apocalyptic love story for the Mad Max generation”, Bellflower has a special preview screening at New York’s Museum of the Moving Image tomorrow (August 4th). The interesting thing for me is that auteur Evan Glodell went so far as designing the camera it was filmed on. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Godard!
The viewing, which kicks off at 7pm, will be followed by a live video call with Glodell and rounded off with a screening of the 35mm print of the original Mad Max.
Sez the press release:
The shockingly violent, darkly romantic indie film Bellflower, a breakout hit of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, is about two friends who build Mad Max-inspired flamethrowers and muscle cars to prepare for global apocalypse. [Glodel’s] custom-made camera… uses vintage parts, and Russian lenses, combined with a digital camera, to create a powerful visual style.
