*Online Premiere* Filled with wild visions, How the Sky Will Melt is a one-of-a-kind new feature in the realm of experimental weirdness — horror elements bump into far-out psychedelia which bumps into meta comedy. An immensely imaginative story of a musician looking to escape from fame by entering into a surreal often nightmarish mystery of time and space.
Her name is Gwen, a redhead in a leather jacket roaming the land under vague circumstances. We find out she’s looking for a place to bury her friend but the real picture is vastly more heady. She meets up with some acquaintances who join her on an excursion through forests and mountains. And the world starts to unravel when the group eats wild mushrooms, and a bloodied man falls from the sky.
Director Matthew Wade builds a bizarre and colorful visual landscape using Super 8mm, an anachronistic mix of aesthetics — bright 80’s colors and flashy costumes, pop out from dreary, grainy film stock. An ominous synth score sets the mood for an atmospheric trip. Despite the enigma, Wade is completely in control of each element, indeed the film is heavily mapped out and prime for repeat viewings. (88 minutes). NoBudge is happy to present How The Sky Will Melt as an Online Premiere.
