Nowhere (18*) + Discussion with James Balmont, Simon Raymonde & Estella Adeyeri

Chronic Youth Film Festival

A man sits naked in a chair of a dark room flanked by two women. There are weapons on the wall behind them.

Follow Araki’s apathetic, eccentric, and sexually uninhibited teens as they traverse Los Angeles to get to the hottest party of the year!

In the finale of Gregg Araki’s Teenage Apocalypse trilogy, Nowhere follows angsty Dark Smith as he attempts to find love and meaning in a generation that exalts the presentation of self over connection. Described by Araki as "Beverly Hills, 90210 on acid,” Nowhere invites you to experience a hyper-stylised LA where sexuality is unrestricted, drug use is routine and oblivion is incoming…

Following the screening will be a panel talk about music in film with musician Estella Adeyeri, arts & culture writer James Balmont, and musician and record producer Simon Raymonde.

USA/France, 1997, Gregg Araki, 82min, 18
