About “Sis, is This the final End for the World? ” by Alli Logout“Sis, is This the conclusion for the World? ” is really a movie project rooted in narratives of queer closeness, embodiment, and becoming. Mika, a new runaway groupie, is welcomed to the decadent life and shotgun design home of six queer punks— a selected household blurring the lines of closeness, relationship and sex in close quarters. Through Mika’s conflict with identity, desire, and belonging, the audience goes into containers of the time and area which start into potentials for the complete life.

Mika in addition to crew set about a trip into the United states South. From shotgun to tour van, the movie task invites us further in while simultaneously expanding outwards. In the identification developing stress of outside/within, dissolving formal elements, artistic and chaos that is structural there was an experiential demonstration of black colored rage through the rejection of our reliance on semiotic type. The compounded injury brought forth just isn’t one thing for the figures to rather overcome one thing to be thrust forward and through. It really is a departure from representation into experience. Experimental transitions, improvisational dialog, and escalating artistic elements implicate the audience, disrupting their connection with activity. The task challenges a compulsion which starts in consumption and ends in the total experience that is immersive of collective death drive, our importance of rupture, our unfaltering need to escape, towards insurrection, with interior love and affinity. The figures aren’t fated, perhaps perhaps maybe not together through fate, rather move together giving kind to their very own life, together in being and action.

Imbedded in filmmaker Alli Logout’s process that is creative collaboration with QTPOC whom make within the vibrancy of the life, in set design, costume and styling, dialog, and motion. The task will likely be filmed in brand New Orleans, Los Angeles having a crew that is skeleton of through the Gulf Southern.
