KNIFE + HEART 2018

Paris, Summer 1979. Anne (French pop star Vanessa Paradis) produces third-rate gay porn. After her editor and lover Lois leaves her, she tries to win her back by shooting her most ambitious film yet with her trusted, flaming sidekick Archibald. But one of her actors is brutally murdered and Anne gets caught up in a strange investigation that turns her life upside-down. Shot on 35mm and featuring a killer retro score from M83, Yann Gonzalez’s KNIFE+HEART is an ultra-stylish and blood-soaked ode to ’70s-era De Palma, Argento, and Friedkin.

BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER 2000

Megan (Natasha Lyonne) is a teenager passionate about cheerleading. However her conservative parents suspect she is more interested in the other girls on the team, despite the fact she has a boyfriend - albeit one she refuses to be intimate with. Filled with horror at the thought of having a lesbian daughter, her straight-laced parents (Mink Stole and Bud Cort) ship her off to a summer school that aims to turn kids straight. Determined to get back the summer of fun she had planned, she decides to go along with the camp's rules, that is until she meets the beautiful Graham (Clea DuVall) and finds herself questioning her sexuality for the first time.

Funeral_Parade_of_Roses-714925483-large.jpeg

Director: Tashio Matsumoto

Starring: Pîtâ, Osamu Ogasawara, Yoshimi Jô, Koichi Nakamura. 

Runtime: 105 min. 

FUNERAL PARADE OF ROSES 1969

Transgender actor Pîtâ gives an astonishing performance as Eddie, hostess at Bar Genet – where she’s ignited a violent love-triangle with reigning drag queen Leda for the attentions of club owner Gonda.

 

One of Japan’s leading experimental filmmakers, Toshio Matsumoto bends and distorts time, and freely mixes documentary interviews, Brechtian film-within-a-film asides, Oedipal premonitions of disaster, his own avant-garde shorts, and even on-screen cartoon balloons. Funeral Parade of Roses is a celebration of youth and subcultures, a condemnation of intolerance, and a one-of-kind cinematic experience. A kaleidoscopic masterpiece, and one of the most subversive, intoxicating films of the 60s. (BFI)

PARIS IS BURNING 1990

Where does voguing come from, and what, exactly, is throwing shade? This landmark documentary provides a vibrant snapshot of the 1980s through the eyes of New York City’s African American and Latinx Harlem drag-ball scene. Made over seven years, Paris Is Burning offers an intimate portrait of rival fashion “houses,” from fierce contests for trophies to house mothers offering sustenance in a world rampant with homophobia, transphobia, racism, AIDS, and poverty. Featuring legendary voguers, drag queens, and trans women—including Willi Ninja, Pepper LaBeija, Dorian Corey, and Venus Xtravaganza—Paris Is Burning brings it, celebrating the joy of movement, the force of eloquence, and the draw of community.

SCHOOL'S OUT!

LADY BIRD 2017

In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.
