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 women: 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.

As sapphic thrillers go, it's twenty times more fun than Basic Instinct.

Imagine the film that J.G. Ballard might have made if he'd been born an Austrian dyke.
