“FLAMING EARS is a pop sci-fi lesbian fantasy feature set in the year 2700 in the fictive burned-out city of Asche. It follows the tangled lives of three women -- Volley, Nun and Spy. Spy is a comic book artist whose printing presses are burned down by Volley, a sexed-up pyromaniac. Seeking revenge, Spy goes to the lesbian club where Volley performs every night. Before she can enter, Spy gets into a fight and is left wounded, lying in the streets. She is found by Nun--an amoral alien in a red plastic suit with a predilection for reptiles, and who also happens to be Volley’s lover. Nun takes her home and subsequently must hide her from Volley.
It’s a story of love and revenge, and an anti-romantic plea for love in its many forms. An avowedly underground film which was shot on Super 8 and blown up to 16mm, FLAMING EARS is original for its playful disruption of narrative conventions (the story is a thread rather than a backbone in the film), its witty approach to film genre, and its visual splendor.”

About the short film:
Multi-talented director B. B. Araya is, among many other things, the creator of the upcoming series "We Are":
"We Are" is an anthological short film series that will give you an intimate glimpse into the lives of seven women of color who call Austin home. We'll join as the characters navigate their way through friendships, self-doubt, and quarter-life crises. "We Are" premieres in September 2017 at wearefilmseries.com!"
hyperreal film club is a time and a place for new friends, old friends, freaks, geeks, enemies, lovers, and ghosts to come watch some neat flicks.
Join us each tuesday as we explore the far reaches of weird, beautiful, and forgotten cinema from a host of diverse filmmakers. Alongside each night's film, all screenings feature some combination of short films by local filmmakers, sets by local musicians or visual artists, director visits, or other interactive installations.
