Animal Collective’s ODDSAC – More Screenings and DVD Release

The highly anticipated film from psychedelic indie band Animal Collective was first premiered to the world at the Sundance Film Festival on January 26th this year. ODDSAC which stands for Occipital Dynamic Dysfunctional Surrealism [by] Animal Collective is a feature film or visual album created by Animal Collective and Danny Perez, the mastermind behind the visual projections seen at Black Dice and Panda Bear shows.

It is said to feature six previously unreleased Animal Collective songs, a sad vampire rowing a canoe boat and a family that gets eaten by the marshmallows they are roasting whilst camping, all the ingredients for the perfect movie it seems.

According to Perez “[ODDSAC] was meant to be an open-ended operation of audio-video synthesis, the passing back and forth of visuals and sound so that each would inform the other and create an organic structure.”

Luckily for residents of the US of A following the success of the project, theatres have agreed to put on more screenings which are as follows:

03/17 – Chicago, IL @ Music Box Theatre: 7 p.m./9 p.m.
03/20 – Minneapolis, MN @ The Cedar: 7 p.m./9 p.m.
03/22 – Los Angeles, CA @ Arc Light Cinerama Dome: 7 p.m./9 p.m.
03/25 – San Francisco, CA @ Sundance Kabuki Cinemas: 6:30 p.m./8:30 p.m.
03/29 – Portland, OR @ Cinema 21: 7 p.m./9 p.m.
03/30 – Seattle, WA @ The Egyptian Theatre: 7 p.m./9 p.m.

Sadly for us Brits we will have to wait for a DVD release which has been announced for June 29th and said to feature bonus content alongside the film.
