Program C: CREMASTER 4 & 5, DE LAMA LÂMINA

A film by Matthew Barney

In CREMASTER 4, a flame-haired satyr (Matthew Barney) slowly taps his way through an eroding floor into the sea as competing color-coded motorcycle teams set off in opposite directions to circle the Isle of Man. In CREMASTER 5, Ursula Andress stars as the Queen of Chain, an audience of one for whom a lush operatic spectacle is performed by the Budapest Opera and Philharmonic Orchestra within a grand 19th Century opera house, accompanied by fairies, a magician (Barney), various attendants of unspecified gender and species, and a bevy of pigeons. DE LAMAMINA (From Mud, A Blade) was filmed during Carnivale 2004 in Salvador De Bahia, Brazil. A collaboration between Barney and avant-garde musician Arto Lindsay, the film is a vivid illustration of Barney’s fascination with “biomechanical erotica.” Chicago premiere!
