****RUNNING ALL WEEK****
KIKI (Sara Jordenö, USA, 2017, 94 minutes)
A dynamic coming-of-age story about resilience and the transformative art form that is voguing. Kiki offers riveting and complex insight into the daily lives of a group of LGBTQ youth-of-color who comprise the «Kiki» scene, a vibrant, safe space for performance created and governed by these activists.
THE ORNITHOLOGIST (João Pedro Rodrigues, Brazil/Portugal, 2016, 117 minutes)
“You can depend on a João Pedro Rodrigues movie to give you a real eyeful. The Portuguese filmmaker’s erotic phantasmagorias offer no shortage of what-the-fuck tableaux, with an emphasis on bodies and the sweet havoc they wreak… calls to mind the best of Luis Buñuel and Apichatpong Weerasethakul.”–Film Comment
