Looking Awry: Nowhere

September 30, 2017 @ 9:15 pm - 10:45 pm

Free - £8

Described by director Gregg Araki as “A Beverly Hills 90210 episode on acid,” Nowhere follows 18-year-old Dark Smith through a day in the teenager’s life in LA. Dark fails to get the emotional support he craves from girlfriend Mel, who is also involved with a girl named Lucifer, while Dark moons over hunky Montgomery. A spree of kinky sex, hallucinogenic drugs, random violence, romantic misunderstandings, and alien abduction ensues. Part of Araki’s notorious Teen Apocalypse Trilogy exploring alienation, fluid sexuality, and Armageddon.

Screening with short Self and Others (6 mins), a study of the visual language of sexual fluidity as captured through the lens of film history. Introduced by programmer Jacob Engelberg, part of Looking Awry: Representing Bisexual* Desires On Screen.

ACCESS: Level access at entrance of CCA with Cinema space on ground floor. Accessible toilets available. English language with English captions. BSL interpretation for introduction. Hearing loop.

Content note: depiction of violence, sexual assault, and suicide.
