Saturday's "Passion and Pleasures" show includes a special 16mm double projection of Barbara Rubin's legendary avant-garde film Christmas on Earth. Film Love's Andy Ditzler will host the screening and introduce the film.
We will approximate the original 1960s screenings of Christmas on Earth with two 16mm film reels running simultaneously (one image inside the other), a specially chosen soundtrack of 60s pop songs and surprises, and colored gels for the projectionist and audience to place over the projector lenses as the film shows. Join in the fun!
This vintage film will be accompanied by adventurous, current film and video works on eroticism, chosen by the CinErotic programmers. Full program information is at the CinErotic website.
