In Rave Danger
Turn up the bass and turn out the lights for two synthy, stroboscopic journeys through Europe’s underground rave scene that capture both its hedonistic highs and crushing comedowns. First, it’s back to the ’90s in Tomek Popakul’s hallucinogenic animated short ACID RAIN, in which a woman’s mind-enhancing odyssey through the Day-Glo wonderland of Poland’s club-drug subculture takes a dark and disturbing turn. Then, Sebastian Schipper plunges the viewer into the heart of Berlin’s shadowy underbelly in the exhilarating thriller VICTORIA, another tale of a night out gone wrong, dazzlingly shot in a virtuosic single take.
