ORBIT

Australia / New Zealand (MIFF 2007, Backbeat)

ORBIT

Curated for MIFF (by MIFF), Orbit takes a spin around all that's fresh and exciting in Australian and New Zealand music videomaking. Explosive and frenetic, these clips run the gamut from Fraggle-like creatures on drugs… obsessive crushes… murderous puppets… cyborg bands… to fish-head space invaders firing tree-trunk laser beams. Get schooled, Orbit style.
