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?
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.
KathleeenWill Rahilly IFFR 2018 25′
Wat is a connection when your modem fails and the internet is your religion? Kathleeen and her laptop look for meaning in a dark, yet hilarious, digital world.
