Robot vs. Dinosaurs vs. Vikings!
Part of Film Fest IX: The Perils of the Neo-Futurarium!
The Saga of the Viking Women and Their Voyage to the Waters of the Great Sea Serpent (as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Great Sea Serpent)
A unique first for the Film Fest, Chicago comedy scene stalwart Joe Janes (Robot vs. Dinosaur, WNEP, 365 Sketches) takes Roger Corman’s 1957 babespoitation fantasy about Viking women and mashes it together with the famous 1963 Peter Weiss play best known as Marat/Sade, directed by the Great Sea Serpent. A metatheatrical feast of lust, betrayal, and the struggle of all human beings to overcome the suffering of being alive, this Film Fest presentation will challenge all of your preconceived notions of both asylum inmates and buxom berserkers.
Featuring: Susie Gutowski, Becca Levine, Spencer McCurnin, Erin Morrill, Nick Cutelli, Emme Williams, Wolfgang Stein, Mike Newquist, Patrick Kelly, Alex Farrington, Sami Hatch, Nat Topping, Geoff Crump, and Lila Collins
Assistant Director: Rinska Prestinary
