Emory Cinematheque: Car Wash (1976)

Film & Media Director Michael Schultz’ riotous episodic musical comedy features the talents of Richard Pryor and George Carlin at the heights of their fame and grapples slyly with gender, sexual, and racial identity all to the beat of disco during the day-to-day antics of a Los Angeles car wash. Media historians such Joe Wlodarz have hailed the film’s militant politics while critic Roger Ebert reveled in Car Wash’s “dizzying, nonstop kaleidoscope of cars, soul music, characters, crises, crazy kids on skateboards, hookers, television preachers, suds and hot wax.”.

Emory Cinematheque: Polyester (1981)

Film & Media Polyester marks self-declared “Pope of Trash” John Waters’ first effort to court mainstream appeal, albeit in savage and disruptive fashion. His not-to-be-missed extravaganza hysterically sends up 1950s Hollywood melodramas as neglected housewife Francine Fishpaw (played by iconic drag performer and Waters’ muse, Divine) escapes her suburban nightmare by leaping into a romantic fantasy with handsome playboy Todd Tomorrow (former Hollywood heartthrob Tab Hunter). Writing about the film for its Criterion Collection release (which arrived with scented Odorama scratch-and-sniff cards), historian Elena Gorfinkel lauded “the legendary Divine doing his best bedraggled Liz Taylor impersonation, routed through the cartoonish Grand Guignol of Sins of the Fleshapoids and the hairpin plot twists and chest-heaving of As the World Turns with a touch of the materialist naivete of Rainer Warner Fassbinder thrown in.”.

Dark Habits exhibits the director’s signature social irreverence and flamboyant visual palate, which Michael Bronski of Boston’s Gay Community News announced as “a film style which, while focusing on quirky externals and ephemera, can tell us an enormous amount about his characters thoughts and emotions…this seems to be a singularly gay male technique in which inner reality is transposed onto the external world and exhibited through odd and extravagant artifacts and surroundings.”.

Dr. Putcha argues that the public persona of the Indian dancer has come to represent India in the global imagination—a representation that supports caste hierarchies and Hindu ethnonationalism, as well as white supremacist model minority narratives.

Emory Cinematheque: Sleepaway Camp (1983) and Murder, She Wrote, “Birds of a Feather” (CBS, 1984)

Film & Media A controversial and delectable slasher that adopts gay and transgender sensibilities, Sleepaway Camp stars horror icon Felissa Rose as Angela Baker, a traumatized adolescent sent by her eccentric aunt to a murder-plagued summer camp. Alice Collins of Bloody Disgusting cites Robert Hiltzik’s debut as unique and exceptional in that “the movie is steeped in queerness, especially when compared to its contemporaries. In its day it took a deeper look into the subject matter than that of other films. Angela’s dad is a closeted gay man, there’s forced gender bending, and the majority of the scantily clad people in the film are men with all those very short shorts that leave little to the imagination.” Perhaps unsurprisingly, the first season episode of gay icon Angela Lansbury’s long-running detective series Murder, She Wrote, “Birds of a Feather,” addresses gender and sexual transgression through similarly playful images.

Emory Cinematheque: Funeral Parade of Roses (1969)

Film & Media Japanese New Wave director Toshio Matsumoto contributed one of the movement’s most explicitly queer and erotic films with Funeral Parade of Roses, a loose adaptation of Oedipus Rex set in the gay culture of 1960s Tokyo. Androgynous performer Shinnosuke Ikehata (better known by the stage name “Peter”) plays a young transgender woman, Eddie, as she undergoes trials and tribulations at and around the Genet, a covert but lively gay bar. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian called the movie a “fusillade of haunted images and traumatized glimpses, splattered across a realist melodrama of the Tokyo underground club scene, played out in a fiercely beautiful monochrome” upon the fifty-year anniversary of its release.

Friends of Dance Lecture with Dr. Sarah Wilbur, Duke University: Should I Dance for Free?

Dance Free Event / No Tickets Required A Friends of Dance Lecture with Dr. Sarah Wilbur, Duke University  Please join Sarah Wilbur (Duke University) for an interactive presentation connecting artists’ current struggles to sustain working lives and livelihoods to past patterns of federal, state, and private dance support. As an artist-scholar deeply invested in interpreting dance making with an eye for economic drivers and artists’ contingent conditions of production, Wilbur will work alongside Emory and Atlanta-based dance stakeholders to understand and debate how dance artists organize and support their work, now, in light of past policies. Please join this discussion of what kinds of resources (economic or otherwise) dance makers today need to be supported in their fullest flourishing. While those assembled are predominantly working in the dance field, any artist, arts organizer, arts ally or advocate, or general fan of the arts is more than welcome to attend.   Sarah Wilbur (she/hers) is an Associate… Department / Organization: Emory Friends of Dance.

Emory Cinematheque: Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988) and Xena: Warrior Princess, “Sins of the Past” (1995)

Film & Media Gay director David DeCoteau produced a cult sensation with the irreverent and rollicking horror comedy Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama, which stars 1980s “scream queens” Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, and Michelle Bauer as teenagers trapped inside a shopping mall bowling alley after unleashing a devious imp (played by horror punk singer Dukey Flyswatter) who causes bloody havoc. Felix Vazquez of Cinema Crazed celebrates director DeCoteau and his movie for “[featuring] really funny gags including bowling with a severed head…for what it’s worth, the film still has a very gritty and barebones quality about it that shines for anyone interested in re-visiting some eighties grade-A cheese.” This film fits superbly with the excessive and unapologetic queer television phenomenon Xena: Princess Warrior, which established a palpable romantic bond between the mythic Xena (Lucy Lawless) and her feisty companion Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor) in its pilot episode, “Sins of the Past.”.

Shadowing her romance is the courtship of her great-grandparents Anna and Sharif nearly one hundred years before. In 1900, the recently widowed Anna Winterbourne left England for Egypt, an outpost of the Empire roiling with political sentiment. She soon found herself enraptured by the real Egypt and in love with Sharif Pasha al-Baroudi, an Egyptian nationalist. When Isabel, in an attempt to discover the truth behind her heritage, reenacts Anna’s excursion to Egypt, the story of her great-grandparents unravels before her, revealing… Museum Location: Board Room.

Emory Cinematheque: Paris is Burning (1990) and RuPaul’s Drag Race, “Ru Ha Ha” (Logo, 2011)

Film & Media Filmmaker Jennie Livingston delivered a simultaneously joyous and tragic exploration of New York City’s 1980s drag ball culture in her landmark documentary Paris is Burning. The film poignantly follows the lives and captivating performative expressions of marginalized artists who form their own unique communities and family structures within arenas of camp play. The Washington Blade’s Elizabeth Donahoe hailed Livingston’s documentary as politically “complex and contradictory…celebrating both individuality and collectivism, it is simultaneously a paean and indictment of American democracy.” Paris is Burning’s social influence reverberates in the third-season episode “Ru Ha Ha” of Logo’s transformative reality series RuPaul’s Drag Race as contestants from diverse backgrounds incorporate camp humor and Ball-inspired “reading” practices into their subversive stand-up routines.

Emory Cinematheque: Addams Family Values (1993) and The Addams Family “Halloween with the Addams Family” (ABC, 1964)

Film & Media To start, Addams Family Values features exhilarating, tongue-in-cheek performances from an allstar cast that includes Angelica Huston, Raul Julia, Christina Ricci, Christopher Lloyd, and Joan Cusack. More critically, though, Paul Rudnick’s sly script lends this 1990s family film its radical pedigree, evident through the blood-drenched Thanksgiving-themed children’s pageant that serves as an outré holiday touchstone for misfits and outcasts. As David Denby wrote in his New York magazine review, “Rudnick and director Barry Sonnenfeld have made the Addams Family a metaphor for outsiders, all outsiders…the morbid family of greasy dark monsters becomes a weapon against the straight world.” The 1960s Addams Family television show displays similarly queer and subversive moments, which are most resonant and apparent in the holiday special “Halloween with the Addams Family.”.

Emory Cinematheque: But I'm a Cheerleader (1999)

Film & Media Jamie Babbit’s mischievous satire about a gay conversion camp resonates not only as a candycolored romp but also as a biting political manifesto. The film stars Natasha Lyonne (before her starring roles in Orange is the New Black and Russian Doll) as Megan Bloomfield, a high school cheerleader whose parents send her to a residential in-patient conversion therapy camp to "cure" her lesbianism, and future Happiest Season director Clea DuVall as Megan’s rebellious crush, Graham. Critic Drew Burnett Gregory named Babbit’s debut one of the most important queer films ever made, surmising that “camp is often associated with gay men, but this movie is explicitly lesbian camp…this is a queer movie made by queer people about queer experiences through a queer lens for queer audiences.”.
