France | 1950 | Jean Genet
The only movie by novelist and playwright Jean Genet was once banned in the U.S. (Even the Supreme Court found it obscene!) It’s a short, poetic, black-and-white silent film about two male prisoners in solitary confinement. Yearning for companionship and love, they do what they can to overcome their sexual deprivation. No one under 18 admitted! Preceded at 7:15 by After Apocalypse (Ultra pulpe, France, 2018, subtitles, DCP), a new short fantasy by Bertrand (The Wild Boys) Mandico. It stars Elina Löwensohn as a female director of pulp movies who imagines and fetishizes different women in a series of outlandish, erotic horror/sci-fi scenarios. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. Total 63 min.
Special event pricing $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
