A loose-sequel to both LOGAN’S RUN and 1984, the official synopsis goes something like ‘Winston Smith runs into the daughters of Logan 5 and Francis 7’, but more accurately it plays like a long-trailer and making-of, in the best way possible.

Set in a roller-disco rink inside a space station, SPACEDISCO ONE blurs the line between documentary and fiction, satire and farce, the film ricocheting between fragments of scenes, dumping loads of plot between rants about chemtrails and how hard it is to make a movie with no resources from someone who looks to be a parody of Packard himself.

A love letter to sci-fi, movies and making movies.

Screening with

TALES OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND (2009)

A live-action tribute to Miyazaki made with little to no money, but per usual, what it lacks in budget it more than makes up for in charm and ingenuity. Packard avoids white washing and leans into the no-budget aesthetic, using actual stuffed animals as stand ins for Miyazaki’s creatures.

More a collection of scenes from NAUSICAA than a cohesive narrative, fans of Miyazaki, Packard, either, or neither will find something to enjoy here.
