'69 French film More, with Pink Floyd soundtrack shows at Highland Inn Tues., Nov. 25
This Tuesday night Fringe Factory and Movie Lounge present a free screening of director Barbet Schroeder's 1969 cult/hippie classic, More. the film features a soundtrack by legendary British psych rockers Pink Floyd.
The film captures a slice of life in '60s Europe where youth and drug cultures collide. Stefan (Klaus Grunberg) ventures to Paris after graduation, where he becomes enamored with a young American hippie girl, Estelle (Mimsy Farmer). She lures him to Ibiza, where the dangerous and exotic world of LSD and nude sunbathing are pursued before succumbing to the destructive trappings of heroin addiction.
The film follows the two youths as they fall deeply into a downward spiral of drug abuse and denial.
Famous for its moody Pink Floyd soundtrack, songs in the film include "Green is the Colour," "Cymbaline," "The Nile Song" and "Ibiza Bar."
DJs, as well as a few short films and movie trailers will also be seen and heard throughout the night.
