Barry is well on the right track to drinking, main- lining, and smoking his way out of his fucked-up life, when one night in a state of total intoxica- tion he is abducted by aliens. After a series of experiments and probes, he finds himself back on Earth but no longer himself: He has become a temporary pad for an alien who steers Barry’s lanky, emaciated body through Cape Town in search of sex, violence, and a good time. Ryan Kruger’s raucously eccentric feature-length debut is a surprisingly profound, moving trip full of hallucinogenic visuals and a thumping, pumping EDM soundtrack. An instant classic of psychotronic cinema!

Ryan Kruger
started his obsession with film as a teenager, shooting with a JVC MovieVideo camcorder. Ever since he has been into action-driven filmmaking, exploring topics of criminality and bizarre relationships. Kruger has an acting degree from The Guildhall School of Music & Drama (UK) and completed his studies in Directing & Writing at the Cape Town’s AFDA Film School. With over seventy music videos for prolific artists, he is known today as the top music video director in South Africa. In this context, his latest film, Fried Barry, comes as a rockstar-like tale of sex, drugs, and violence.
