LSFF: Alex Z. Taylor: Outsiders Inside Us + Q&A

12 Jan 2017

As part of With Teeth 2017, LSFF has commissioned Alex Z. Taylor to create a new work, premiered here, drawing on his themes and obsessions with outsiders and teenage subcultures. It will be screening alongside his loose and improvised short films that blur the lines between documentary and fiction, providing a unique view of 21st century multi-cultural teen tribes. Here’s a chance to see alien abductees, cosplay, goths, religious freaks, and underground communes, as well as some exclusive outtakes from his debut feature, Spaceship. Alex will join us for a Q&A following the screenings.

Alex will be performing in the ICA Bar before the screening as Nawixela: an improvised duo playing guitar, saxophone, a toy record player, and cheap casios, with reverbs, delays, loops, and samples.
