Brisbane Festival, in association with The Tivoli, present
NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN + TROPICAL F*CK STORM
THU 26 SEPTEMBER, 7.30pm | The Tivoli
Directed by Haydn Green from Hear My Eyes, experience the Coen brothers’ Texas noir thriller No Country for Old Men paired with the riotous, mad, psych-punk sounds from Tropical Fuck Storm (Gareth Liddiard, Fiona Kitschin, Lauren Hammel and Erica Dunn) as they perform their original score live on stage alongside the film screening.
The Academy Award-winning No Country for Old Men, starring Javier Bardem, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Kelly Macdonald and Woody Harrelson as worn individuals living in 1980’s West Texas, follows the merciless killer Anton Chigurh and the bloodshed that ensues.
Joel and Ethan Coen’s faithful adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s 2005 novel is a violent, poetic, and intensely gripping reimagining of the book which explores the darker side of humanity through philosophical meditations on determinism, absence of free will and Nietzschean nihilism. It is widely regarded as the Coen brothers' best film.
Following numerous sold-out shows at the Arts Centre Melbourne in 2018, this is a visceral psych-punk explosion and match made in heaven.
