FRANCE, United States | 50 minutes | 2019

When the ghost of a spaceship escapes, two hunters take off on an interstellar chase to capture the entity before it can flee to freedom. What if machines had souls? From Metropolis to The Matrix, from Winding Refn to 2001, this is an orgasmic journey into 80s movies and music. Call it an over-the-top music video or a new-fangled space opera, this sequel to the cult video Turbo Killer by Carpenter Brut (huge in synthwave) was made on a shoestring budget, yet boasts effects worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster. A performative film, and one of the year’s great techno music events.
