    Synopsis: 

    A lonely adolescent girl living on the outskirts of a vast satellite field runs away from home and into a world of danger, deception, and disappointment. Set in the mid-century American Southwest and inspired by the music of Hank Williams, Roy Orbison, and Patsy Cline, Lula del Ray is a mythic reinvention of the classic coming-of-age story. Manual Cinema combines handmade shadow puppetry, cinematic techniques, and live music to create a stunning visual landscape.

    'Lula del Ray,' a Spectral Parade of Fantastical Images

    Ben Brantley

    January 6, 2017: So if you add up the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional to create a new spatial entity, does that mean you’re in the fifth dimension? Whatever you choose to call it, such a perspective-melting world is the realm in which the enchanting Lula del Ray takes place. This latest offering from the Chicago-based arts collective Manual Cinema, which runs through next Saturday in the Public Theater’s Under the Radar festival, is dreamy in all senses of the word. It tells its story — in many ways, a familiar one of a restless girl’s small rebellion against her lonely provincial life — in the twilight zone between shadow and substance.
