Centred on the politics of bodily fluids and viral pleasure, Fluidø is an immersive, visceral and vividly experiential cyberpunk feature oozing with delights, from multi-media artist and filmmaker Shu Lea Cheang (FRESH KILL; I.K.U).
It’s the year 2060 and a mutated version of the HIV virus re-codes bodily fluids as an erotic-narcotic. A new type of gender fluid human, ZERO GEN, are the bio-drug carriers of this intoxicating ejaculate. DIY biohackers, underground drug lords, and a scheming corporation are intermeshed when the (corrupt) government sends out secret agents to identify anyone who carries the mutated gene. But these android agents can also be ‘turned’ with a single shot of the stimulating new drug…
Fluidø takes viewers on a sensory journey through speculative sex and a dreamed anarcho queer future, and we’re thrilled to present this as our closing night feature.
