For 2021 Film Geeks SD is turning to the wildly diverse American Genre Film Archive for a year of virtual film screenings and discussions. We have broken down the year into four themed quarters: First Films, Cult, Horror and Classic Hollywood. Each month a film becomes available on a Wednesday and then there is a Zoom discussion the following Sunday at 3:30pm. We are working on lining up the guests for the discussions and more information will be coming.


VIP passes are on sale through Feb 7 for $80. Link for passes is here:

Film Geeks Presents: SPIRITS OF THE AIR, GREMLINS OF THE CLOUDS (Alex Proyas, Australia, 1989, Umbrella Entertainment, Cult)

Dates: Mar. 3 (Film Becomes Available); Mar. 7, 3:30PM (Discussion)

Category: First Films

The visionary debut feature by Alex Proyas (DARK CITY, THE CROW), emanating from the same lushly twisted cinematic universe as Richard Stanley (HARDWARE, DUST DEVIL), Philip Ridley (THE REFLECTING SKIN) and Vincent Ward (THE NAVIGATOR, VIGIL.)

 

Dust, dirt and hypercolored skies are everywhere in SPIRITS OF THE AIR’s overwhelming desert landscape, onto which Proyas has constructed a unique post-apocalyptic fantasy homestead. Here, eccentric siblings Felix and Betty live together in an isolated cabin where modern tech is absent, with wheels and gears operating a house full of broken devices to assist their struggle to survive.

 

In wanders a stranger named Smith, and their simple lives become instantly tumultuous. The wheelchair-bound Felix dreams of flying, and Betty believes their new arrival to be a demonic presence.
