FLAMING EARS / ROTE OHREN FETZEN DURCH ASCHE A 1991, 16mm, 84 min
With: Susanna Heilmayr, Ursula Pürrer, Angela Hans Scheirl, Margarete Neumann, Gabriele Szekatsch, Anthony Escott, Luise Kubelka

Flaming Ears is a pop sci-fi lesbian fantasy feature set in the year 2700 in the fictive burnt out city of Asche. It follows the tangled lives of three woman: Sy, comic book artist; Volly, a performance artist and sexed up pyromaniac; and Nun, an amoral alien with predilection for reptiles.

It's a story of love and revenge, and an antiromantic plea for love in its many forms. It's also a story laced with sex, violence and a pulsating soundtrack, a cyberdyke movie, stimulating both the body and the brain.

"Early film practice of the 1980s and 1990s contributed significantly to the development of conceptual art in Austria by moving between the definitions of experimental film, public-space actions, performance, music, and other forms of expression related to lesbian and queer sexuality.
Her transition to painting (...) has been accompanied by a metamorphosis of her own physical appearance to one of male allure, helped by testosterone injection.
His recent accomplishment with this art medium encouraged him to emancipate one more time from his gender identification, to be called a "she" again. This time using "Ashley" (which, like "Hans," uses letters from the name given at birth: Angela Scheirl), a gender variable name." (excerpt from Pierre Bal-Blanc, Documenta 14: Daybook)
