This Friday, get the story behind the music at CHIRP Radio’s video event at Logan Theatre, part of the Chicago Underground Film Festival! We’ll be presenting the films A L'est De L'enfer (East of Hell) and Psychic TV: Dreams Less Sweet.
A L'est De L'enfer (East of Hell) is a French documentary that centers around the underground Black Metal music scene of Surabaya, Indonesia. Directed by Mathieu Canagulier, the film illustrates how the community takes a movement that started in Europe and is reinvented with Western codes and Indonesian beliefs.
Founded in 1981 by Genesis P-Orridge, Psychic TV was a group focused highly on videos. Genesis even said, "Psychic TV is a video group who does music, unlike a music group which makes music videos." When Genesis invited 47 artists to create a collective film set to the group's acclaimed second album, Dreams Less Sweet, in a process drawing from the cut-up technique originated by Genesis' friends and mentors Brion Gysin and William Burroughs, as well as the VHS networking practiced by the Temple of Psychic Youth in the 1980s. The resulting work was the video, Psychic TV: Dreams Less Sweet.
The double feature begins at 6:30pm this Friday, April 4 at The Logan Theatre. Tickets are $8. Get yours here now!
