CASTRO THEATRE

7:00PM CHAMPAGNE RECEPTION 8:00PM SALOME USA, 1922. Directed by Natasha Rambova and Charles Bryant. Silent. Bob Vaughn, organist.

In honor of the Castro Threatre's sixtieth an­ niversary,

Frameline presents the

1922 film

SALOME, released the same year San Fran­ cisco's Landmark Theatre opened its door to the public. Directed by Natasha Rambova and Charles Bryant, written by Natasha Rambova, starring Alia Nazimova. Based on the work by Oscar Wilde, SALOME was not well received by critics or censors when it was presented by Alia Nazimova sixty years ago. Made with a reputedly all-gay cast, this exotic and highly stylized film horrified the cen­ sors who had several sequences deleted includ­ ing one that made clear a homosexual relation­ ship between two Syrian soldiers.Artist Aubrey Beardsley was the inspiration for the sets and costumes which were executed by Rambova

(reportedly

Nazimova's

Natasha

sometime

lover and the wife of Rudolph Valentino). Ac­ cording to one New York examining censor after viewing SALOME: "This picture is in no way religious in theme or interpretation. In my judgment, it is a story of depravity and immoral­ ity made worse by its biblical background. Sac­ rilegious! " Intermission

BARRY SANDLER IN PERSON Frameline hosts a champagne reception and buffet at the landmark Castro Theatre to cele­ brate the opening of the Sixth Annual Festival and the Castro's sixtieth anniversary.Join us and our host for the evening, Vito Russo, along with this year's guests, Barry Sandler, Kenneth Anger, Barbara Hammer and the other partici­ pants in this year's event. Vito Russo talks with Barry Sandler, screen­ writer for MAKING LOVE, about his film and Hollywood's entrance into gay cinema.

Film

segments from MAKING LOVE will be included as well as audience participation.


TUESDAY, JUNE 22 6:30PM PRISON FOR WOMEN Canada, 1981. Produced and directed by Holly Dale and Janis Cole. Camera: Nesya Shapiro; 81 min., 16mm, color.

A documentary of unusual impact, PRISON FOR WOMEN is the first feature by Canadians Janis Cole and Holly Dale. They have gone into the only federal penitentiary for women in Canada and have come out with a heart-wrenching film showing the desperate plight of the inmates. The stories of five of the women are told in their own words. The lives they reveal are bleak and empty. Worst of all, few of them see any hope for their futures. Almost no opportunity is offered for rehabilitation; the only job training available is in cosmetology. Some of the few bright spots in the film are the segments dealing with Janise and Debby, two women who met in prison and fell in love. Their happiness when they are together is infec­ tious. Ironically, after being brought together by im­ prisonment, it is freedom that may cause these two lovers to lose each other. Debby is sched­ uled for release in 48 days. Janise has 20 more years to go. The helplessness these two feel as they dis­ cuss their separation is typical of all of the pris­ oners. Unable to direct their own lives, to be with their loved ones, to even walk down a street, these women are truly forlorn. The loss, and the anger that they feel as a result is seen in every face in the film, and is heard in every story.

CASTRO THEATRE; 10:00PM ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE EAST Canada, 1971. Produced by Pierre Larny, di­ rected by Andre Brassard. Photography: Attila Dory; 100 min., 16mm, color.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE EAST

A transvestite night club is the center of activity for a wildly diverse group of people, all margi­ nal members of society, doing the best they can in a oppressive world. An old woman wins one million trading stamps, while another readies a country-western night club act. An aging "Duchess" returns home, a young girl con­ templates an abortion, a young man prepares for the drag of his life as Cleopatra-all of these people know and rely on each other for good or ill. This French Canadian entry in the Cannes Film Festival explores life on the outskirts of conventional society with honesty, humor and empathy. ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE EAST is the first feature directed by Andre Brassard, the most sought-after stage director in Canada.

The completed film will be comprised of interviews with people who participated in the events of 1977-1979, his­ torical footage, media coverage, and still photo­ graphs. The fifteen minute sample reel includes a selection of some of this material.

traffic, student radicals, gay bars, prostitutes, hippies, rock music and rebellion. The stage blood gore of the Oedipus sequences are a po­ tent counterpoint to the serenity of Leda's tea service and the light-heartedness of Eddie and his friends' entry into a mens room in full go-go girl drag. Dire omens mix with comic moments as Matsumoto steers his course through melod­ rama, tragedy, comedy, documentary style in­ terviews, and social commentary, coming at last to Eddie's inevitable end. The question that re­ mains is, what will become of Peter?

FUNERAL PARADE OF ROSES is a unique avant garde masterpiece, a brilliant film within a film which recreates the classic story of Oedipus while simultaneously showing the film crew, ac­ tors and director at work. Set in the Japanese "gay-boy" society of 1969, the film tells the Oedipus tale with a gay twist - "Eddie" is a young, mod gay-boy who killed his mother and ends up sleeping with his father. As this fictional tale unfolds, we are also shown the real�life world of Peter, the 16 year old gay-boy who plays Eddie in the film. FUNERAL was the first feature

film by director Toshio

Matsumoto.

Known previously as a maker of experimental and short documentary films, Matsumoto has created

a

picture

of

Tokyo's

homosexual underground and of the constant battle in Japan between the old ways and the new. Eddie's main rival in the movie is Leda, a trad­ itional, geisha-style gay-boy. As different as Eddie's vinyl miniskirt and Leda's kimono, the two protagonists still want the same things, the number one spot at the local gay bar and the love of Gondo, manager of the bar. As their drama plays itself out, it seems inevitable that modern ways will win in the end.

look inward at the double life he leads. By pre­ senting a dispassionate view of London gay nightlife, NIGHTHAWKS allows a gay male audi­ ence to experience "the hunt" as more than passive spectators. There is an uncanny feeling that we in the audience are ourselves cruising, recognizing a glance or a gesture, then realizing it is meant for a character in the film. The movie climaxes with a defiant, courageous moment of liberation. When NIGHTHAWKS opened in New York in 1978 several mainstream critics, including Janet Maslin in The New York Times and David Denby in New York magazine singled it out as a film that examined gay nightlife with sensitivity, in­ telligence and an uncompromising respect for its main character. Gay critics have criticized the film for presenting a limited picture of the gay

DEPART TO ARRIVE tells the story of Anna, who, at the end of a year-long love affair, quits her job as a photographer, borrows a friends' VW camper and heads for the south of France to recover. On the road she begins to reminisce about the good times and the bad that she shared with her lover, Regine. Directed by Alexandra von Grote, the film was conceived as "a portrait of a womans' relation­

world. A charge that director Ron Peck has intel­ ligently explained: "The film shows one part of the gay scene . . . it does not cover everything as many people may wish it did. But such a hope . . . is only a reflection of the dire situation in which there are so few films with or about gay charac­ ters. Almost any film starts off with the burden of trying to redress an imbalance . . . We need hundreds of gay films, not half a dozen."

ship". This is the first feature for the German di­ rector, who is also a journalist, film professor and author. Von Grote uses a fragmented flashback tech­ nique to tell the lovers' story and to sort out Anna's reasons for running away. Memories as­ sume the nature of hallucinations, forming a sharp contrast to the pastoral French country side through which Anna passes. Many differ­ ent experimental film techniques and laboratory col or processes are used by the director to skill­ fully evoke the intensity of these scenes. Variety has said that there is something of ev­ erything in this film. It was subsidized by both the German Federal Film Board and the Berlin Film Fund. The quality of the film proves that their support was well deserved.

min. ,

16mm, color. A challenging and controversial film that asks serious questions about gay politics in America, ARMY OF LOVERS charts tha progress of what director Praunheim sees as a losing battle. His images form a picture of a movement talking to itself as he examines the stridencies of political and social extremes within the gay movement. Through a series of interviews interspersed with newsreel footage, still photo montages and snippets of marches and rallies we are consis­ tently asked to redefine and reexamine the na­ ture and purpose of gay liberation. "Radicalism died in 1973", a grim-voiced narrator intones while onscreen the former executive director of the National Gay Task Force, Bruce Voeller, is seen on the street wearing a suit and tie. NGTF is described, conversationally, as a "conserva­ tive,

organization."

Anita

Bryant,

Stonewall, San Francisco's 1977 Gay Freedom Day Parade and cynical scenes of the cult wor­ ship of superstar women by gay men are all in­ cluded in this radical documentary that has been both praised and condemned by feminists, lesbians, gay men and straights. In an interview with Montreal gay publication, Le Berdache, director Praunheim made his in­ tentions clear: " It's too easy to show homosex­ uals as victims. To get out of the situation of vic­ tim you have to struggle. Gays have been used to hiding and playing a passive role. They are also passive politically ...When they saw my films, many gays felt hatred and anger for the first time, though it was directed at men and at the films. But that's the reaction I wanted. It's a very important step forward."

Frank is the inarticulate, self­ proclaimed artist; the faded tail of the youth comet of the sixties. Johnny is thirteen and is just ready to emerge from the swadliings of the suburbs. They meet in a strange moment of mutual need only to be separated by all those forces which keek society neat, clean-cut and in its place.

We produce and distri­ bute films by and about women. As filmmakers, we use the film media to speak to the reality of women's lives and counter the stereotypic, and oftentimes romanticized or degrading, images of women presented by the film industry. As distributors, we make the film statements of other women available to the community for the purpose of enlightenment, entertainment and creating social change. We feel that it is ex­ tremely important for all of us who are working for social change to understand the importance of culture, and visu�1 media in particular, in achieving our goals. Visual media-films in this case-can put forward the most powerful ideas, point out the most blatant contradictions, with­ out saying a word. Our committment is to get­ ting as broad an audience as possible for films that we believe have important political and aesthetic content.-Iris Films.
