Directed by Slava Tsukerman (USA, 1983, 112 min.). Digital.
Hailed by Time magazine as "a two-hour act of imagination," Slava Tsukerman’s Liquid Sky is an underground masterpiece of avant-garde science fiction filmmaking. It follows a fashion model named Margaret (Anne Carlisle), whose alter ego and rival, Jimmy (also Carlisle), exploits her to satisfy his rampant drug addiction. Unknown to Margaret/Jimmy, invisible killer aliens have landed on the roof above their squalid apartment, and a German is on a mission to capture and study the aliens. Set against the visual majesty of New York’s early '80s New Wave scene, and featuring arresting cinematography by Yuri Neyman and an acclaimed original soundtrack, this stylish cult classic recently received a 4k digital restoration from its original 35mm camera negative.
