Maximalism in the extreme. Films, performances and an installation bring together different disciplines in a swirling mash-up of contemporary pop culture.
Films in ‘Maximum Overdrive’
Great ChoiceRobin Comisar IFFR 2018 7′
Witty retro horror in which a woman seems caught in a loop in a dated video commercial. Family restaurant Red Lobster just won’t let go. How can she get out of here?
House PartyReginald Hudlin IFFR 2018 100′
A 1990s classic with a lead role for rap duo Kid 'N Play. Kid wants to make an impression with his rhyming skills and organises a big house party with Play. But it all doesn’t go as planned. An infectious comedy with a killer soundtrack and fantastic style. And an afterparty in the style of the film.
The WalkerSu Hui-yu IFFR 2018 18′
Pop culture and high art merge into a physical, visual interpretation of the Walker Theatre in Taipei, which – in the 1990s – was home to the Taiwanese experimental art scene.
Team HurricaneAnnika Berg IFFR 2018 95′
A group of teen girls refuse to conform to the world’s demands. With brightly-coloured leggings, Pikachu and plenty of raised middle fingers they steer themselves towards adulthood in a film that with its neon-green subtitles is equally unapologetic about its non-conformism.
