A musical midnite double feature beamed from the other side of the galaxy with INTERSTELLA 5555 and WAVE TWISTERS.

INTERSTELLA 5555
2003 | Dir. Kazuhisa Takenouchi | 68min | Digital
Interstella 5555 is a visualization of Daft Punk’s landmark concept album Discovery brought to life under the supervision of anime godfather Leiji Matsumoto (Galaxy Express 999, Space Battleship Yamato). The film follows an intergalactic pop band as they’re kidnapped by evil Earthbound record execs, and a lone super-fan’s quest to rescue them.

WAVE TWISTERS
2001 | Dir. Syd Garon, Eric Henry | 46min | Digital
Wave Twisters is the first ever turntablism-musical from the addled mind of Bay-area skratch pikl DJ Q-Bert. Set in a galaxy where the five tenets of hip-hop are suppressed by a lucha-masked dark lord, the film follows a squad of rebels led up by DJ and space-dentist The Dental Commander as he and his crew goes to battle to save hip hop. Wave Twisters
is a goofy, colorful assault on the senses with performances from faceless space invader Buckethead & turntablism gurus Q-Bert, Yogafrog, D-Styles and Flare.

Part of Nitehawk’s April MUSICAL MIDNITES series.
