"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.
"
 -- Mike Everleth, Underground Film Journal

A Torrid Tale of Twin Sisters & the Hypnotist Bank Robber




Joe Estlack and Madeline H.D. Brown as star-crossed lovers
plotting escape from the end of the world as they know it.

starring
MADELINE H.D. BROWN as "Beatrice" & "Zoe"
and JOE ESTLACK as "Ray"

FLAMINGOS (2012; 90 min. USA) Twin sisters Beatrice and Zoe are in love with Ray, a hypnotist-bank robber obsessed by apocalyptic visions. Though married to Beatrice, Ray absconds with free-spirited Zoe after a bank heist to a seedy motel to plot their future. Meanwhile, two entities from a dream-like Bardo realm influence their fates from afar in this heady cocktail chaser of amour fou, crime, and metaphysical mayhem.




Madeline H.D. Brown as "Beatrice" the wife of Ray and Robert Hamm
as Lester, the Divorce Attorney who falls in love with Beatrice.

"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."
4 stars. - Phil Hall (filmthreat.com

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
