ADAM GREEN’S ALADDIN
Above is a link to watch Adam Green’s Aladdin, the second feature film from musician, artist and filmmaker Adam Green.
Set in the modern day world, Adam’s hyper-sensory, poetic and humorously subversive take on the classic Arabian Nights tale stars Adam as Aladdin living with his dysfunctional family in a “regular” American town ruled by a corrupt Sultan with a decadent socialite daughter.
ADAM GREEN’S MDVL: 1,000 YEARS OF DARK AGES
MDVL: 1,000 Years of Dark Ages is a surrealist epic poem about AI, corporate communism, the hard drive of the universe, the phreaker wizard merlin, a plant orgy, mandatory corneal implants, a crusade to silicon valley, and the future world becoming medieval again.
THE WRONG FERARRI – 72 mins.
Conceived on Green’s European tour in the summer of 2010, The Wrong Ferarri was also filmed in transit, with Green writing the script on index cards and presenting the actors/musicians with their lines on the day of the shoot. Taking advantage of the freedoms that come with shooting on a cellphone – they filmed impulsively on the canals in Venice, in a german gas station, in a cemetery in Prague – with Green making up the plot as they went along. Macaulay Culkin who joined up on the tour at a certain point, told Adam that he “wanted in” on the movie and Adam began to write him into the script. When they returned to New York at the end of the summer, Culkin allowed Adam to build sets in his NYC apartment and they completed the production there.
The film is an epic surrealist drug-odyssey which focuses on Adam’s psychological outlook on love, work, and turning 30. Obsessed with the pet-medicine Ketamine, the characters in the film turn into pets themselves only to find that the “K-hole” is bottomless and that they must overtake their masters. With its dialogue-driven approach, “The Wrong Ferarri” allows Green’s poetic and lyrical writing style to come alive – and ultimately propels a poem transforming it into the shape of a movie.
After being completed the movie was immediately released online as a free download. On April 4th 2011, the film premiered at Anthology Film Archives in NYC. In the weeks that followed it showed at the Downtown Independent theater in Los Angeles and at The Mexico Theater in Milan. “The Wrong Ferarri” has been downloaded in its entirety over 300,000 times. Rolling Stone magazine described it as “Fellini on Ketamine.”
