For March’s “How To Be A Woman” program, we invite you to leave your Y chromosome at the door and get in touch with your feminine side with an estrogen-packed evening of ephemeral oddities sure to sync your cycles. It’s ladies first, and man, you will feel like a woman (and like it!) with puberty lessons, breast exams, feminism, claymation body consciousness, and some straight up girl talk. We’ll see a 1942 fashion show from Hollywood’s legendary Pickfair mansion, a new restoration of a Jack Smith drag performance, re-appropriated stag footage, the ultimate film on menstruation, the 1960 Miss Universe Pageant and more… Bonus: program includes an appearance by a REAL LIVE WOMAN!
What began as an after-hours Cinefamily staff tradition is now a public showcase for ephemeral, industrial, educational, and sponsored films of the 20th century — some never intended to be seen on the big screen… until now. Lost & Found Film Club presents a carefully curated hodgepodge of scattershot celluloid, packed as densely as library stacks and screened in the gloriously fuzzed-out 16mm format — plus, grilled cheese sandwiches will be available! Come see what slipped through the splices. Did we forget to mention that GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES WILL BE AVAILABLE?!
