Artosphere Festival: Manual Cinema's Lula del RayMay 4, 2017
Performed with vintage overhead projectors, shadow puppets, actors in silhouette and live music, Lula del Ray tells the story (almost entirely without dialogue) of an adolescent girl who lives with her mother in the middle of the desert. After a chance encounter over the radio, Lula becomes obsessed with a soulful country music duo and decides to run away from home. Inspired by the music of Hank Williams, Roy Orbison and Patsy Cline, Lula del Ray is a mythic reinvention of the classic coming-of-age story, exploring the themes of loneliness, femininity and the iconography of 1950s and ‘60s Americana through live cinematic shadow puppetry.
