Astronomy for Insects
As strange and surreal as its title suggests, Astronomy For Insects is an unnerving dance macabre from a country in the throes of change. It's the free-fall logic of dreams and nightmares, a sci-fi world of ominous, outlandishly costumed characters, giant columns of light, and thrumming sound that sends shivers up your spine.
