As eccentic and esoteric as one would expect from the irrepressible Mr Falco

Long time Outsideleft favourite Tav Falco presents his new feature film "Urania Descending" at the Horse Hospital in London on September 19th/ 20th. An expressionistic razor-cut noir, and as eccentic and esoteric as one would expect from the irrepressible Mr Falco, the film follows an exiled American girl through the chiaroscuro corridors of a Vienna hotel and out onto an Austrian lake in a doomed hunt for lost Nazi gold. Seduction, sedition and surrealism from one of the last true American art mavericks. Watch the TRAILER. For tickets and information - http://www.thehorsehospital.com/now/urania-descending-tav-falco/
