ANN ARBOR — The Ann Arbor Film Festival (AAFF) is excited to announce FUTURE LANGUAGE: The Dimensions of VON LMO as the newest addition to the AAFF PRESENTS series. The 2018 film, directed by Lori Felker, will be available to watch on the Ann Arbor Film Festival’s website until Oct. 6. The film is free for all viewers.
FUTURE LANGUAGE: The Dimensions of VON LMO 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 ’70s New York No Wave music scene. Between trips to his home planet of Strazar and multidimensional travel, VON has also spent some very real time in prison and on the streets of Earth. Challenged with translating his Future Language for audiences across the galaxy, Lori Felker, filmmaker and VON LMO fan, gets sucked into VON’s orbit and finds herself lost in his story.
Lori Felker is a filmmaker, artist, teacher, programmer, and performer. Her moving image work focuses on the ways in which we process, share, and disseminate information, via screens, dreams, gestures, games, and dialogue. By employing and pushing these structures, she attempts to study the ineloquent, oppositional, delusional, frustrating, and chaotic qualities of human interaction.
AAFF PRESENTS is an online monthly screening series featuring films that were shown during the 58th AAFF. Make sure to follow AAFF on social media and subscribe to their Enews to receive updates and keep informed.
