Surprise Treasure

A rare opportunity to see a dazzling, postmodern joy, newly restored.


Long ago and far away a young director made a 43 minute biopic that would soon become known as one of the world’s great cult movies – a dazzling, postmodern joy, decades ahead of its time. The only problem was, it was suddenly withdrawn from circulation only to resurface much later in dodgy, 27th-generation online copies. This is the film that dare not speak its name, but this is a rare and free opportunity to see it reborn in this wonderful new restoration from the UCLA Film and Television Archive. We will also screen Todd Haynes’ short Dottie Gets Spanked.

Additional information

We’re delighted that the screening will be introduced by Christine Vachon, producer of Dottie Gets Spanked, Carol and Special Presentation Colette.
