TRILLZONE (Celludroid Festival)
Sun Aug 10, 13:45 - Sun Aug 10, 16:55
In this locally made feature, an ex-copywriter, turned Cape Town housewife exists in a hamster wheel of suburban upper middle class living. We find her superficially satisfied, yet pining for her 'wild youth'. One day she befriends a transexual prostitute in a mall who introduces her to a psychedelic, distilled from the gland of a rare tropical fish. She is swept away on a desolate tour of the cities underbelly, experiencing the revelation of a secret world. As her dependence on the 'fish glands' grows, so does her fascination with the cities' more sordid side. She begins to inhabit a fantasy world - A sphere glimpsed through the chinks of the shadowy courtesan. Gradually, she is transformed into an image worthy of the mythical place she now calls 'Trillzone'.
