7:3 0 p.m. IMPROPER CONDUCT (MAUVAISE CONDUITE) France, 1984 West Coast Premiere "In Cuba there are no Jews, but there are homosexuals." J. P. Sartre Improper Conduct breaks an uncomfortable and un necessary silence by exposing the oppression of gays that has accompanied Castro's Cuban Revolution, now 25 years old. By documenting victims (artists and homosexuals, now scattered around the world) Nestor Almendros and Orlando Jimenez Leal, themselves Cuban exiles, have created a uniquely challenging film experience, one that asks both the politically sophisticated and the politically naive to recognize the ugly truth: the persecution of homosexuals exists even when all other forms of persecution are officially condemned. Filmed in Paris, New York, Miami, London, Madrid and Rome, Improper Conduct includes interviews with writers, dancers, painters, doctors and transvestites as well as Castro himself and American intellectual Susan Sontag who offers insight into the politics of gay male oppression. These interviews, moving, can did and full of passionate anger, are thrilling evidence of the strength and resilience of gay people everywhere. Nestor Almendros, one of the world's most successful cinematographers, won an Academy Award for Days of Heaven. His other credits include Kramer vs. Kramer, Sophie's Choice and most of Francois Truffaut's films since 1970. Orlando Jimenez Leal has directed several short films as well as EI Super, the 1981 Grand prize winner at the Mannheim Festival.

There's more than one rightious dyke and a lot of personal drama in the outfit. The assignment: mess up the computer memory banks of the genetics institute. The risks: loss of jobs, life, limb, commitment, kids, cooperation and love. The complication: one of the would-be saboteurs has been keeping a diary of their plans, and lost it. The reality: a dual paced thriller-adventure laced with conspiracy and caring. (S.F. Int'!. Film Festival prize for "Best First Feature" )

MAIDENS Australia, 1978 A film of poetic intensity, colliding images and lucid, personal narration.

Japan, 1968 Black Lizard is the nickname of the heroine of this classic Japanese film, the story of a mysterious jewel thief played by Akihiro Maruyama, a female imper sonator. Visually stunning, Black Lizard is probably best known for its screenplay adapted by Yukio Mishima from a novel by Rampo Edogawa. Mishima, one of Japan's most prolific, respected writers, authors of the gay classic, Confessions of a Mask as well as The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea, appears in the films as one of the Black Lizard's eerie, human statues. This film was released two years before Mishima committed suicide by ceremonial Seppuku at the age of 45.

8:00 p.m. DRIFTING (NAGUA) Israel, 1983 West Coast Premiere Israel's first gay-identified film is a low-keyed off-beat story of a young filmmaker stalled on his way down, leveling off at that turning point where the realities of failure and the promises of dreams collide. Robi (Sagalle, macho star of the popular Lemon Popsicle, Israel's American GraffitI) detaches himself from the comings-out and the goings-on of Tel Aviv's tightly closeted gay circles to test his emotional independ ence. But it's a shaky break, what with a married
lover, an ex-girlfriend and a gabby, grabby granny bugging him, young energies resisting his advice and manipulation, and fabulous dream fantasies of a sex ual Arab-Israeli detente. With the collapse of single minded purpose-and no sense of "community," gay or otherwise, to fall back on-Robi begins to drift, nagua ( "a little nuts"), until it all starts to come together again.

Great Britain The Trilogy, complete, is the stark and enervating whole of a man's life charted from grim childhood to unconventional ecstasies. Five actors give substance to the long, gaunt shadow of Robert Tucker's exist ence under the weight of working-class Liverpool, the rigid Cathechism, lovelessness, chastisement and burgeoning homosexuality. The workings of the aligned oppressions are unseen-their results, on a sensitive nature, through a sensitized filmmaker, are among the most striking black-and-white images on The Sprinter

Christa (Tina Engel) is introduced in the pro cess-of taking a teller (Katharina-Tl:la!back) hostage in a bank robbery, naively planned to fund a day-care nursery. She's on the run from then on, but its a flight to discovery, aided by a lesbian relationship with an old schoolfriend, Ingrid, and the painful recognition of new values.

Greece, 1982 West Coast Premiere "With its documentary realism and thriller pace, Angel has no parallel in Greek moviemaking. " Kerin Hope, Associated Press Based on a real criminal case, Angel is about a young gay man working the streets as a transvestite prosti tute to support his macho sailor lover. The tragedy that unfolds-set in an Athens that tourists rarely see-is both beautifully structured and grim. While many viewers at last year's Chicago film festival were angered by Katakouzinos' tragic vision, Angel has become one of the most successful films in Greek history. Katakouzinos has collaborated with Agnes Varda and Costa-Gavras and has directed several short films including the award winning Nights. Angel is his fi rst feature.

U.S.A., 1984 Veteran underground filmmaker, Curt McDowell, turns to Mom with a twist on the old' 'coming out" story and a unique editing style that stretches real time to incorporate more than one response to each event. Written and filmed in 1976, this just-completed family album in formal undress tickles the facts and the sensual fancy at the same time, "less explicit but more hard core" than the audacious gothic-X-comedy, Thundercrack. Sparkle's Tavern plays with the incon sistencies of sexual attitutes and conventional symbols until all self-deception is exorcised-what remains is gay for all seasons.
vivors. Barrish, whose Dan's Motel emerged as a favorite at the 1982 New Directors Series in New York and at festivals in both North America and Europe, sets a laid-back pace and captures a San Francisco lifestyle, open-ended and designed for provocative conversation, that lets the nature of his characters and their lives override the oversimplification of sexual preference.

6:00 p.m. VIKTOR UNO VIKTORIA Germany, 1933 One of the most successful films of the 1930's, Viktor und Viktoria is a fast-paced comedy of sexual confu sion that inspired the recent Blake Edwards' version starring Julie Andrews and Robert Preston. This story of an aging female impersonator who hires a young woman to replace him features musical numbers sur prisingly similar to those in the 1982 version. Viktor und Viktoria is a classic, rarely screened example of an early German operetta film.

10:00 p.m. THE RAINBOW SERPENT France, 1983 West Coast Premiere Philippe Vallois' (director of the gay classic, We Were One Man) latest work is a fully developed tale of suspense set in the world of male body-building that reminded at least one French critic of "Diva rewritten by Dali with rock replacing opera."
A rookie cop, investigating a body-builder suspected of murder, is drawn into the erotic world of gyms and body-worship. An S&M relationship develops between the men as The Rainbow Serpent tells its unusual tale of homoeroticism between heterosexual men. An intel ligent entertainment, The Rainbow Serpent is both a comic stylization of a French police movie that even includes fantasy musical production numbers and a startling depiction of sexual ambiguities.

Panthers and the Palestinians, and in the cell of a penal colony for children, of the birth of his writing career, which he says has given him the strongest emotions he's felt in his life. Born in 1910 in Paris, Genet wrote his first novel while serving one of numerous prison sentences. His works include the plays The Maids and The Balcony and the novels Querelle, Funeral Rites and Our Lady of the Flowers.

8:00 p. m. THE DOZENS US.A., 1981 The Dozens is the story of Sally Connors, a young working-class woman who returns to the Boston com munity after a time in a state prison for economic crimes. Among those who eagerly and no-so-eagerly await her return are a husband who-although he has not maintained their relationship during her
incarceration-expects Sally to reunite with him, a mother whose refusal to accept reality has led her to tell people that Sally's been "in the hospital" for two years, and a daughter who has come to think of her grandmother's house as home. The closeness and comfort she had found within the community of female prisoners, and especially with her woman lover in prison, has been suddenly withdrawn. In its place there is the cold impersonality of the city, the sex typed expectations of mother and husband, and the paternalistic eye of the parole officer. As the film progresses, these forces chip away at Sally's inde pendence, but she demonstrates a rebellion, a deter mination and a spirited humor that make her truly a feminist heroine.

Set in Madrid, this eye-opening, beautifully photographed documentary concerns six transvestites working as prostitutes and night club entertainers. They are happy, good-natured and in sightful as they share their life experiences, incuding a striking scene of silicone implant surgery and one man's visit (in drag) to his extended family's Sunday dinner. Director/writer Antonio Giminez-Rico ( Love and Death) and cinematographer Teo Escamilla ( Carmen, Cria) have captured, with colorful detail, a portrait of the gay world in contemporary Spain.

10:00 p.m. ASA BRANCA-UN SONHO BRASILEIRO (ASA BRANCA-A BRAZILIAN DREAM) Brazil, 1982 US. Premiere Djalma Limongi Batista's first feature is a sensual, simple story full of provocative ideas and imagery that have met considerable resistence in Brazil, a country where there are no greater idols than soccer players. Asa Branca is the story of a young, handsome cham pion athlete who is gay. While this film of homosexual repression and attraction has been publicly condemned by Brazil's soccer establishment it has nevertheless become quite successful, winning major Brazilian film awards as well as a special prize at the 4th Festival des Trois Continents-France. Batista made several experimental, erotic shorts as a student at the Univer sity of Sao Paulo before beginning work on Asa Branca. Director: Djalma Limongi Batista
SILENT MOMENTS (SILENCIS) Spain, 1983 US. Premiere Silent Moments is a short film with a long tale-a gem of voyeurism in camerawork, acting and idea all designed around a Spanish Army officer (Adolf Myer) and his inability to accept his attraction to his gay son (Carles Artigas). The freedom he witnesses from his hiding places finally inspired him to strip from full dress uniform to nakedness to join the male members of his family (including the last appearance of the painter, Ocana, as Mother). The reluctant discovery and disrobing are the barings of a macho soul in torment under a violent military, religious and moral dictatorship. The rest is sensuality...and silence.

BOND/WELD What Really Happened to Baby Jane?
8:00 p.m. GAY GIRLS RIDING CLUB Presented in association with the Lesbian and Gay History Project In the early 1960's Los Angeles' gay bar patrons knew of the Gay Girls Riding Club (GGRC) as the producer of hilarious camp satires of popular movies. Less known was the fact that the GGRC was primarily a social group that got together on Sundays for horse足 back riding and brunch. Their first film venture
appropriately titled Always on Sunday was such a hit that they eventually made three more films, Roman Springs on Mrs. Stone, What Really Happened to Baby Jane and All About Alice. Rarely seen today and never widely shown outside Los Angeles' gay bars, these films, made at a time when our lives were universally portrayed as tragic, remain a unique affirmation of the pleasure and joy gay people take in their lives. Titles for this evening's program include: Always on Sunday, What Really Happened to Baby Jane and Roman Springs on Mrs. Stone.
10:00 p.m. STAND BY US. A., 1984 Stand By is the latest revelation in Curt McDowell's lifelong, sideways search to find out "where we came from." It's cut (like Taboo) in the manner of an LP album, tracking personalized images of Sex, Dad and the American Way along grooves of snapshot images extended into vignettes. Dedicated to a photo of Pop in his potent prime, the film formulates an impression of overlapping generations of popular social history with a free-wheeling mix of eroticism, humor, found footage, Snakefinger's "beatnik" party, and self-exposure.

Prime focus is on Dr. Eric Linden (Chris Haywood) who has to put up with-besides the usual run of troubled and demanding clients-traumatized colleagues, the awful anticipation of meeting his lover's parents and a prig足 gish intern. This well-wrought serio-comic film is the brainchild of Director Stevens, who scripted Breaker Morant, and cinematographer Ian Baker who lensed The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith and The Devil's Playground-a.tour de force from Down Under.

Set in the sunny world of the Southern California coast, Pleasure Beach concerns two lifeguards and their sexually explicit adventures.

Denmark, 1978 West Coast Premiere Edward Fleming has mixed riotous, bitchy comedy with traces of melancholy in this story of a group of middle class drag queens, played, spectacularly by some of Denmark's best known actors. Without sensationalism, Mirror, Mirror creates a subtle and affectionate empathy between the audience and the lives on the screen, clearly members of an oppressed minority. Bent, out of work, shoplifts little gifts for his friends. His mother spends her days dreaming of imagined past glories as an international ballet star. Their relationship is at the center of this richly textured film that is both amusing and compassionate.
