New film focused on rave subculture, queer identity, and sexual discovery starts Kickstarter campaign for help with production costs
Rave subculture, queer identity, and sexual discovery will be key motifs in a forthcoming new short film slated for direction from Chris Sitaridis, Seawolf. The production derives its title from Detroit collective Underground Resistance‘s same titled 1992 cut.
Both a testament to and a product of Sitaridis’ passion for Detroit techno, Seawolf’s aesthetic will be heavily influenced by “the work of British artist Paul Graham as depicted in [Graham’s] ‘End of an Age’ work, a series of youth portraits taken in clubs and bars between 1996 and 1998 that captures the threshold moments that make the end of adolescence, the small slice of time between youthful indulgence and the emerging awareness of adult responsibilities.” An array of Minimum Syndicat selections will comprise Seawolf’s soundtrack.
“Our multicultural mission of bringing the early 90s rave vibe and cultural aspects of that period into life, seen through a human-centered story that encourages diversity, remains strong and we are proud to keep contributing to the queer and rave community,” Seawolf’s film crew said.
Sitaridis and his team intend to begin shooting in September 2018, and aspire to raise $9,900 USD (£7,500) to assist with production costs. Those interested can learn more about Seawolf and donate to the cause, here.
