FUTURE LANGUAGE - The Dimensions of Von Lmo Presented In Person by Filmmaker Lori Felker With a Post Film Q&A
Come out and experience this rare opportunity to see this documentary film about the great VON LMO. Artist and Musician VON LMO was a part of the great No Wave music scene in NYC playing with Red Transistor & Rudolph Grey - among others.
"Red Transistor... Von LMO sang and played guitar and Rudolph Grey was on guitar or bass and it was total insanity. Von LMO was a nut, a great nut.
I was afraid to be in the same room as him. One night they played at Max's and everyone was too afraid to sit up front as they smashed guitars and things were flying all over the place. I went into the front room in fear of my life and tried to get everyone to come with me. Nobody came with me because it was such an intense show."
- Alan Vega (Suicide)
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 multi-dimensional 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, our filmmaker and VON LMO fan, gets sucked into VON's orbit and finds herself lost in his story.
