Outer Space is a shocker of cinematographic dysfunction; a hell-raiser of avant-garde cinema. It conjures up an inferno which pursues the destruction (of cinematic narrative and illusion) with unimaginable beauty.

Our take

This double feature celebrates the wildly rigorous films of Peter Tscherkassky, a key figure in contemporary avant-garde cinema. Re-appropriating footage from the 1982 movie The Entity, he turns that horror film into a maelstrom of images, destroying narrative norms and violating cinematic space.
