FUTURE LANGUAGE: THE DIMENSIONS OF VON LMO
by Lori Felker
2018, 84 min, digital
Film Notes NYC PREMIERE! LORI FELKER AND VON LMO IN PERSON!
FUTURE LANGUAGE is a distorted portrait of an artist that explores storytelling, ego, delusion, conviction, and memory. VON LMO is a musician/artist and self-proclaimed alien-hybrid who was a part of the late 1970s New York No Wave music scene. Between trips to his home planet of Strazar and multi-dimensional travel, VON has also spent some very real time in prison and on the streets of Earth. Confronted with the challenge of translating his Future Language for audiences across the galaxy, Lori, filmmaker and VON LMO fan, gets sucked into VON’s orbit and finds herself lost in his story.
“FUTURE LANGUAGE is the most ambitious film Felker has made to date…. The film is as much about Lori as an artist as it is about VON LMO as a musician, and about how they both interact with each other and with the camera, as filmmaker, as documentary subject, and as human beings.” –Bryan Wendorf, CHICAGO UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL
VON LMO will be performing live in Tompkins Square Park on Sunday, September 9; check anthologyfilmarchives.org in late July for more info.
