Helter Skelter
ヘルタースケルター | Mika Ninagawa, 2012
Japan | 127 minutes

New York Premiere!

One of Japan’s most popular photographers, Mika Ninagawa, and its most controversial young star, Erika Sawajiri, team up to deliver a plastic surgery horror movie that’ll make your skin crawl. Lilico (Erika Sawajiri) is a monstrous Lady Gaga-esque singer and actress obsessed with her own young body, eating up employees, and existing on a diet of flashbulbs. Constructed almost entirely of plastic surgery, she requires frequent “top ups,” but they’re not working anymore and her face and body are slowly turning as black and rotten as bruised fruit.

Series: New York Asian Film Festival 2013

Venue: Walter Reade Theater
