Between the afterglow of “Mad Max: Fury Road” and the anticipation of “Terminator: Genisys,” 505 lovers of all things black and bleak can catch two critically acclaimed documentaries courtesy of The Guild Cinema
Summer’s here and the time is right for films in theater seats. Sitting in the dark, surrounded by noise, reveling in the joy of large machines pumping out recirculated air – it reads like a day trip to Paradise for the typical industrial fan.
Between the afterglow of “Mad Max: Fury Road” and the anticipation of “Terminator: Genisys,” 505 lovers of all things black and bleak can catch two critically acclaimed documentaries courtesy of The Guild Cinema (3405 Central NE) from Friday, June 26 through Monday, June 29.
With “Dark Star: H. R. Giger’s World,” (95 minutes) director Belinda Sallin gives viewers an intimate glimpse into the life and work of the Oscar-winning Swiss artist who scared the piss out of filmgoers over thirty years ago with his beasts in “Alien.” Giger, who died in 2014, opens up his sketchbooks, home, and museum full of monstrous marvels for a final glimpse into his unprecedented creative vision.
Meanwhile, “Industrial Soundtrack For The Urban Decay” (52 minutes), directed by Amelie Ravalec and Travis Collins,doc_duo_Industrial Soundtrack is billed as a must-see 2015 film by websites Noisey and Uncut. Through interviews with such genre luminaries as Genesis P. Orridge (Throbbing Gristle), Graeme Revell, Cabaret Voltaire and Boyd Rice, “Industrial Soundtrack” shares the rich, dissonant history of a genre shaped by crumbling factories, worker discontent, and Thatcher-era Europe. Ravalec is also responsible for the 2012 documentary “Paris/Berlin: 20 Years of Underground Techno.”
