"FLAMINGOS is thoroughly remarkable in the way it packs dense, engaging
layers of honest emotional and spiritual musings in an extremely constricting
framework. Yet, through a well designed cinematography, Alli never lets the
film feel confined or limited." -- BadLit: Journal of Underground Films

BEATRICE (Madeline H.D. Brown) and LESTER (Robert Hamm)
Twin sisters, Beatrice and Zoe, are in love with Ray, a hypnotist-bank robber
driven by visions of the end the world. Though Beatrice and Ray are married,
Ray runs off with free-spirited Zoe and hides out in a motel after a bank heist
to plot their future dreams together. Meanwhile, Beatrice files for divorce as
two enigmatic entities from the Bardo interzones take interest in their fates
in this heady cocktail chaser of crime, metaphysics, and amour fou.
(2012; 90 min. USA)
Joe Estlack and Madeline H.D. Brown as star-crossed lovers on the lam
who plot escape from the end of the world as they see it.
MADELINE H.D. BROWN as "Beatrice" & "Zoe"
and JOE ESTLACK as "Ray"
"Special praise is in order for Madeline H.D. Brown’s remarkable double
performance as the chilly Beatrice and earthy Zoe, Joe Estlack’s work as
the extremely off-kilter bank robber, and Alaska Yamada’s uncommon
energy as a Bardo denizen whose eerie presence is both disturbing
and liberating. Alli, in addition to direction and screenplay, also
handled camera, lighting and sound recording duties, which
reconfirms his versatility as one of the most original film
artists of our time." - Phil Hall' at filmtheat.com
ROBERT HAMM as Lester Beringer, divorce attorney
ILYA PARIZHSKY as the masculine entity in the bardo
ALASKA YAMADA as the feminine entity in the bardo
When asked what my film 'FLAMINGOS' is about I say it's all about love --
how we rush towards it, flee far away from it and how sometimes, when we
stop rushing and fleeing, we find it within ourselves. And for those who
cannot stop rushing or fleeing, love swoons and crashes through
torrents of terrible longing. - Antero Alli, director
