Synopsis: the local underground club is shutting down, but not before throwing one last party. Mimmi (Isabelle Grill) drags her nervous friend Lina along for a night of alcohol, ecstasy and dancing. But as the night nears its end, more and more of the party goers become affected by a strange infection. 

As people start to deteriorate in the goriest ways, Mimmi tries to find her way out through the club’s neon-lit corridors and dark back rooms. However, surviving the night is only the beginning in this hallucinogenic descent into body horror hell.

Considered the precursor of extreme cinema, SOLAR ANUS CINEMA is directed by the iraqi american director Usama Alshaibi (Profane), the modern master of transgressive cinema.

SOLAR ANUS CINEMA collects nine of his female portraits with some sexual content, filmed between 2001 and 2008, plus the longer narrative short film The Amateurs (2003), a medium-length film about casting a pornographic movie.

For the portraits, Usama Alshaibi films different women, including his wife Kristie Alshaibi and each segment is also imbued with either just a hint of violence or an explicit vision of it.

In The Amateurs instead Alshaibi has cast himself as an amateur pornographer auditioning women to perform with his two male cohorts in front of a camera, but the men are unable to fulfill his outrageous requests.

SOLAR ANUS CINEMA special features include the Photogallery, the original Trailer and the never released before porn short film ASS (2001).

Kristie Alshaibi, Molly Plunk (Profane), Samer Alshaibi, Brandon, Camilla Ha, Desiree, Kalyx star.
