Peggy And Fred In Hell

An acclaimed avant-garde flick from the '80s

Peggy And Fred In Hell is a film by Leslie Thornton that’s considered to be one of the greatest achievements in experimental filmmaking of its time. The plot centers on two children left alone to wander in the debris of the 20th century. Roaming a post-apocalyptic terrain with only their imaginations and a complete feeling of unknown leads to insightful moments of revelation. The film plays on important themes such as fear and innocence, but most importantly it’s a critical view of society and technology. Trust us, Thornton isn’t considered one of the most important American directors for no reason. General admission.
