Margaret (Anne Carlisle) is a fashion model with dreams of stardom, whose alter ego and rival, Jimmy (also Carlisle), abuses and takes advantage of her to satisfy his rampant drug addiction. Unknown to them, tiny, invisible aliens have landed on the roof above the squalor in which they live and begin killing anyone Margaret is intimate with to feed on their pleasure-giving neurotransmitters. All the while, a German scientist attempts to capture and study them. 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. Set against the visual majesty of New York’s early ’80s New Wave scene, and filled with arresting cinematography by Yuri Neyman, along with an acclaimed original soundtrack.” – Vinegar Syndrome.
The Crosstown Arts Film Series showcases a diverse collection of independent, international, historically significant, artistic, experimental, cult, underground, and documentary features.
