Flying Lotus is the kind of producer who likes to spread his work around. Whether it’s working with the likes of Thundercat or serving as house DJ on Hannibal Buress’ TV show, FlyLo keeps himself busy. Earlier this year, he provided the score for a short film from director/writer/producer Eddie Alcazar called FUCKKYOUUU.
Described as a “gorgeous and grotesque experimental trance of time travel and body horror,” the film was shot on 16mm black and white reversal film. The official synopsis reads, “With the ability to travel in time, a lonely girl finds love and comfort by connecting with her past self. Eventually faced with rejection she struggles with her identity and gender, and as time folds onto itself only one of them can remain.” Clocking in at just about eight minutes, the film is essentially a Flying Lotus music video fashioned after grindhouse horror flicks.
After premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the black-and-white sci-fi horror flick will finally receive a second — and a third — screening at Austin’s Fantastic Fest. The newly announced screenings will take place at noon on both September 25th and 29th at the Alamo Drafthouse. It’s a rare chance to check out some unique and, presumably, terrifying music from the prolific Flying Lotus, so head to Fantastic Fest’s website for more info and tickets.
