An outlaw romance noir
by Antero Alli
~~ appearing in person
!WORLD PREMIER! !WORLD PREMIER!
Twin sisters, Beatrice and Zoe, are in love with Ray, a philosopher and bank robber driven by visions of the end the world. Though Beatrice and Ray are married, Ray elopes with free-spirited Zoe and hides out in a motel after a bank heist. Meanwhile, Beatrice files for divorce as two enigmatic entities from the Bardo interzones take interest in their fates. This heady and funny film is a cocktail chaser of crime, metaphysics, and obsessive passion.
Antero Alli is a Finnish-born, local underground filmmaker with ten feature fiction full-length movies and numerous shorts to his credit. He personally screens his films in rare, limited runs — usually in west coast art houses (“I don’t have a mainstream bone in my body”). Though his films have not yet seen widespread theatrical release, they continue to garner high critical praise in, for example, the renegade film review website, “filmthreat.com,” which is far out on the sharpest cutting edge of the film community. Antero is the founder/director of ParaTheatrical ReSearch (since 1977), a center for group paratheatre work in Berkeley, California, where he resides with his wife, the singer/composer Sylvi Alli.
