Sirens of the 23rd Century - When beauty is outlawed, only outlaws will be beautiful! Hyper-colorful, campy, kitschy and androgynous, this hit of the gay and lesbian film festival circuit is a neoclassical, sci-fi, fairytale satire set in the 23rd century after cosmetics and modeling have been outlawed by a fascist government regime. A small, feminine group of underground Beauty Renegades fights back, led by a fearless and epic amazon. Starring Rod Chaouqi, Paul D'Addario, Felecia Faulkner, Trevor Hale, Richard Harder (Star Trek IV), Rachel Klyce, Jim Letchworth, Marilyn Letchworth, Tina Morasco(TV's Angel and The O.C.), the notorious Omewenne, Nicole Stanton, and Jennifer Kroot who also wrote and directed the film.
"Camp of the highest order. Like a co-production between John Waters and Greg Araki." - Entertainment Today LA.
"Kroot has made a truly unique vision here, and it is a lot of fun. The cast of drag queens, some of them quite attractive, is bitchy perfection, and the dialogue is first rate." - Film Threat
"Enough shenanigans to keep viewers laughing for hours. (Kroot) takes Sirens places no other female filmmaker has dared tread." - Curve Magazine
We are doing regular weekly film screenings with Fools Foundation on Fridays at 7 PM - and most are $5 (unless otherwise noted in advance), and will have filmmakers out from time to time. Also in Sept:
9/29/06 The American Astronaut - A rare chance to see this scifi musical western oddity by Cory McAbee of the band, The Billy Nayer Show. Unlike anything you've ever seen. Production Designer Geoff Tuttle is planned to be in attendance at this screening and provide a brief introduction to the film.
Spooky October's schedule:
10/06 Stomp! Shout! Scream! - a tribute to/satire of the American International Pictures rock 'n' roll beach party monster movies of the 60's. From the Producer of "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" and "Squidbillies!"
10/13 Independent America: The Two Lane Search for Mom & Pop - doc by husband and wife journalist team travel America with only two rules: no traveling on interestates; and only doing business with Mom & Pop businesses - no chains. Explores corporate encroachment's impact on small local businesses around the country. A must see! OK, not too fitting for the month of Halloween, but this is such an important doc, we did not want to delay screening it just beacause it's October.
10/22 Ed Wood's "I Woke Up Early the Day I Died" - directly adapted from Ed Wood's unfilmed script with Billy Zane (briefly in nurse drag, no less!), and appearances by Christina Ricci, Nicollette Sheridan, Ron Perlman, Sandra Bernhard, Tippi Hedren, Ann Magnuson, Eartha Kitt, Andrew McCarthy, Bud Cort, Max Perlich, Vampira, Conrad Brooks (an Ed Wood staple!), Karen Black, Summer Phoenix, Tara Reid, John Ritter, Kathy Wood (Ed Wood's wife of many years) and yes, even more! Never on home video in the US, and with only a couple of screenings since it was made in 1998, we are excited to offer a rare chance to see this!
10/27 Hellbent - From writer/director Paul Etheredge-Ouzts and Joseph Wolf, the co-creator of such horror classics as Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Utilizing the formula of 80's slashers, Ouzts and Wolf create a new horror film with, as the LA Times stated, "a clever and sexy gay twist." Lots of fun!
