That’s right, we’re giving our faithful readers discounted tickets to Sydney Underground Film Festival’s opening night, whoopee!
The annual weekend of extreme, warped and transgressive cinema is returning to the Factory Theatre in Marrickville from September 12-15 for a jam-packed four days. Prepare to explore the outer limits of what film can be.
Happy readers are now eligible to receive discounted tickets to the prestigious Sydney Underground Film Festival on their opening night!
The opening night will be presenting the first film of the festival, The Beach Bum by master provocateur Harmony Korine. Re-teaming with cinematographer Benoît Debie (Climax) Korine serves up his latest slice of neon-hued debauchery – trading in the gun-toting college co-eds of Spring Breakers for a bongo-playing, bong-smoking hippie by the name of Moondog (Matthew McConaughey).
Moondog used to be a successful poet, but these days he’s too busy smoking weed, hitting the bottle and romancing the ladies to do anything remotely creative. Since his wife is stinking rich, there’s really is no great urgency but when his luck runs out and he finds himself without a cent to his name, it becomes time to finish that novel he’s always been meaning to finish. But it sure can be hard to focus when you’re surrounded by such colourful characters; a religiously inspired pyromaniac, a dolphin-obsessed sea captain, a suave marijuana connoisseur, a scruffy beach singer, and a coke-addicted parrot just to name a few.
Co-starring Snoop Dog, Zac Efron, Martin Lawrence and Isla Fisher, The Beach Bum is a refreshingly free-spirited and subversive comedy, one part farce, one part stoner satire and one hell of a rollicking good time.
Also happening on the night, Happy DJ’s will be taking to the decks and there will be a live liquid light show by Cult of EVERYTHING!
