FLAMING EARS / ROTE OHREN FETZEN DURCH ASCHE A 1991, 16mm, 84 min  - Pürrer / Scheirl / Schipek

Flaming Ears is a pop sci-fi lesbian fantasy feature set in the year 2700 in the fictive burnt out city of Asche. It follows the tangled lives of three woman: Sy, comic book artist; Volly, a performance artist and sexed up pyromaniac; and Nun, an amoral alien with predilection for reptiles.

It´s a story of love and revenge, and an antiromantic plea for love in its many forms. It´s also a story laced with sex, violence and a pulsating soundtrack, a cyberdyke movie, stimulating both the body and the brain.

Shot in Super-8 and exploded to 16mm, Flaming Ears is a German Blade Runner - about a sexed-up pyromaniac, her red-plastic-clad mate, and a revengful comix artist - characterized by a fierce, punky throb and gelatinous F/X. As sapphic thrillers go, it's twenty time more fun than Basic Instinct. [...]
