After Blue

Bertrand Mandico · 2022 · France
130min · DCP
Playing Jun 3 through Jun 9

In a faraway future, on a wild and untamed planet, a lonely teenager, Roxy, releases an assassin from the sands she was buried in. As soon as she’s free, the criminal sparks death all around. Roxy and her mother Zora are held accountable, banished from their community and forced to track the murderer down. They start a long journey pacing the supranatural territories of their filthy paradise. Co-presented with the Seattle Erotic Cinema Society and Three Dollar Bill Cinema.

"Mandico is one of the most daring, exciting filmmakers working today. Part of a new wave of boundary-pushing queer French filmmakers which includes his frequent collaborator, Fantastic Fest alum Yann Gonzalez (KNIFE + HEART), Mandico is consistently expanding the definitions of genre, both stylistically and plotwise." Lisa Dreyer, Fantastic Fest

“Erotic lesbian acid trip is like The Love Witch set on planet Annihiliation… Dripping with dirty eroticism, much like the goo that oozes out of many unknown holes, After Blue is as tactile as film can get.” Indiewire

“…the kind of camp sci-fi lesbian western you never knew you needed in your life.” Backseat Mafia

“…suffused in a feverish ecstasy, that wild excitement that comes from watching one world crumble and another jutting into being from scratch, a vision of a clean slate in which everything—and everyone—can be reinvented, and every norm challenged.” The Film Stage
