Wednesday, January 21, 2015, 8:00 pm, $7-$10

Periwinkle is excited to present an international feature film this month. Coming all the way from Buenos Aires, Argentina. 
Pablo Oliverio’s UN OVNI SOBRE MI CAMA
An ultra technological and dirty world where aliens not only coexist but blend in with Earthlings and yet are persecuted by a society based on disciplinary control that observes people’s every move in a Buenos Aires with dark, broken streets. A cartographer lies in the eye of the storm of this dystopian future, as he can’t decide whether to collaborate with that controlling State or to participate in a resistance movement that wants to liberate the city. And among all that tension, the hope for love comes in like an oasis, even if it’s an interplanetary one. Pablo Oliverio imagines a future that is very close to our reality, where homoerotism coexists with a particular waste-made production design. Kind of cartonera science fiction that has some influence of Gregg Araki but carries on its own spirit thanks to its speed, its particular passion for recycling, and a plot that celebrates diverse desire without shame or boundaries.
ABOUT THE FILMMAKER:Born in Buenos Aires in 1972, Pablo Oliverio has made more than twenty short films in Super 8, video and 16mm, among them the awarded Historia de amor en un baño público (2001). He also directed the features Orgasmo (2005), Puto (Cinema of the Future competition, Bafici ‘06) and Desaliniados (2008).
