KAIROS DIRT & THE ERRANT VACUUM

Friday, May 11, 2018 | 9:30 PM

Madsen Minax; 2016; USA; 98 min.

Reminiscent of the works of David Lynch and John Waters, KAIROS DIRT & THE ERRANT VACUUM connects a group of mystical misfits as a trans-worldly being invades the characters’ dreams. Television monitors, radio frequencies, and orifices all become portals to a mysterious dimension, revealing an alternate realm of shameless, subconscious desires. Using an unearthly, genderless apparition and fantastic, carnal dreamscapes, director Madsen Minax invites you to question what is self, what is other, and what we must give up to become something else. Awarded Best Feature at the 2016 Indie Memphis Film Festival.
