Static Vision & SBG Present The Devils

Spooky Bitch Gang are proud to co-present a rare screening of Ken Russell’s 1971 masterpiece, The Devils with Static Vision.

Friends of the pod Static Vision present their latest film festival Goodbye, Pink Flamingo, a three-day, single-screen event showcasing a global selection of groundbreaking queer, punk, feminist and DIY cinema, curated as a tribute to the beloved underground warehouse screening space, the Pink Flamingo Cinema.

Static Vision reveals a unique line-up of NSW Premieres, cult-retrospectives, hard-to-find rarities, guest curations and short films centring on queer, punk and underground countercultures, screening exclusively at Pink Flamingo Cinema in Marrickville from November 17–19.

Perennially challenged and nearly always banned somewhere in the world, The Devils is a violent, subversive and salacious piece of carnivalesque nun-sploitation set in 17th Century France. It’s a film that grows in stature every year and remains a must-see for its place in the canon of bold, boundary-staking filmmaking.

The Devils screens Sunday November 19 alongside Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Querelle (1982). The German master’s final (and queerest) film, Querelle joins a handsome Belgian sailor on shore leave in the port of Brest who embarks on a voyage of highly charged and violent homosexual self-discovery that will change him forever from the man he once was.

Other highlights include 70s erotic underground artefacts Sextool and Sex Demon, Gregg Araki’s Teenage Apocalypse Trilogy (Totally Fucked Up, The Doom Generation and Nowhere), the NSW Premiere of T Blockers (2023), the latest queer, punk, horror foray from the most underappreciated, prolific and untapped voice in contemporary Australian genre-filmmaking Alice Maio Mackay (who directed the film at a mere 17 years of age) and heaps more.
