Slava Tsukerman's cult science-fiction opus Liquid Sky has a lot to answer for. A near-perfect time capsule of early-'80s NYC punk subculture, it was the highest-grossing indie film of 1983 and laid the groundwork for the electroclash club scene that peaked in the early 2000s. It's a weird, wild flick about a teensy-weensy flying saucer harboring benign aliens that feed off of human pleasure. Cinefamily features it in its series The History of the Midnight Movie. Tsukerman, along with cinematographer Yuri Neyman and production designer Marina Levikova, will appear for a discussion afterward.
