Beyond the Black Rainbow

Held captive in a specialized medical facility, a young woman with unique abilities seeks a chance to escape her obsessed captor. Set in the strange and oppressive emotional landscape of the year 1983, "Beyond the Black Rainbow" is a Reagan-era fever dream inspired by hazy childhood memories of midnight movies and Saturday morning cartoons. The outlandish feature film debut of writer and director Panos Cosmatos is a film experience for the senses. Featuring a hypnotic analog synthesizer score by Jeremy Schmidt. "Pays homage to Kubrick, Argento, Cronenberg, Altered States, John Carpenter synth scores, 70s sci-fi and 80s fantasy, and mind-boggling, hyper-stylized madness, while blazing its own uniquely insane trail." - Nick Schrager, Lessons of Darkness.
