Permanent Green Light
Presented by Screen Queen:
Roman seems like a normal teenager playing video games, drawing, and hanging out with his friends, but under the surface he’s made a decision, a decision to explode. He wants to do it in public. He’s not suicidal. He has no ideology. He’s not interested in “heaven” or in going there. He doesn’t want people to misinterpret his explosion as a suicide. He doesn’t want people to misinterpret the explosion as his death.
This second collaboration between cult novelist Dennis Cooper and filmmaker Zac Farley is, “a brilliant, disturbing, but darkly rewarding experience” (Paper Magazine).
“A slow, quiet, sexual cinematic poem on mopey teenage beauties who love making bombs and wish they could explode themselves.” John Waters, from his top 10 movies of 2018
