‘Pillbox’, the silent movie by Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, will screen at the Golden Age Cinema in Sydney October 24 for one-might only.
‘Pillbox’ was made to accompany Corgan’s new solo album ‘Ogilala’. I thought it was a different approach to listening to an album, to watch it in essence with a related, albeit non-linear, silent movie. Art is art. And together the two pieces create a work unto itself,” shared Corgan on the film’s connection to his new album.
Inspired by a hero’s journey, Pillbox was written by Corgan, and directed by Corgan alongside longtime collaborator Linda Strawberry. The film is a Strawberry-Blank Assassin Production and stars: Harry Holmes, Rai Quartley, Anna Steers, Kalpana Pot, Hardeep Manak, Los Angela, Paul Seroka, Amelya Hensley, and Ike Catcher.
