Queer Horror: THE STEPFORD WIVES

Stepford Wives Crop.png

In celebration of the Hollywood Theatre’s Feminist March programming, the bimonthly series Queer Horror adds a special off-month screening to its calendar with 1975’s THE STEPFORD WIVES! Sponsored by Finger Bang nail salon and Double Mountain Brewery, this rare 35mm presentation is hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi with a preshow starring Portland’s own 1950s drag housewife, Madame DuMoore!

Adapted from Ira Levin’s classic thriller, THE STEPFORD WIVES follows photographer Joanna Eberhart (Katharine Ross) as she moves with her husband and children to a quiet suburban community in Connecticut. But something strange is happening in the town of Stepford, where the local women have replaced their careers and ambitions with cooking and cleaning – at least ever since the town’s defunct women’s group was visited by Betty Friedan – and Joanna and fellow newcomer Bobbie (Paula Prentiss) find themselves in a race against time to learn what lurks behind the walls of the Stepford Men’s Association. Derided upon its release for being both too “anti-men” and “a rip-off of the women’s movement,” this incisive and ahead-of-its-time satire is more relevant, hilarious, and terrifying than ever before.

ABOUT QUEER HORROR:

QUEER HORROR is a bimonthly festival of genre works by queer artists, performers, and filmmakers questioning horror’s relation to queerness and what it means to identify with the monster. Maybe it’s the fact that queer people are so often relegated to shadows of otherness that the horror genre is more immediately relatable for us. We grew up with boogeymen. We’ve lived with boogeymen. Goblins and ghosts are a welcome escape from real-life monstrosities.

From the work of James Whale and John Waters to Patricia Highsmith and Clive Barker, horror has deeply impacted queer culture and sensibilities and QUEER HORROR asks why. QUEER HORROR is programmed and hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi and her human avatar Anthony Hudson, with artwork by resident artist Jason Edward Davis.

LOOKING FOR TIGER LILY makes its international and Canadian premiere at the 18th Annual Talking Stick Festival in Vancouver, BC! Join us for an opening act hosted by drag queen Jaylene Tyme featuring the talents of burlesque dancer RainbowGlitz and more!

Starring Anthony Hudson – the human vessel for Portland’s premiere drag clown Carla Rossi – LOOKING FOR TIGER LILY utilizes song, dance, drag, and video to put a queer spin on the ancestral tradition of storytelling. Asking what it means for a queer mixed Native person to experience their heritage through white normative culture as they recount growing up watching the 1960 production of “Peter Pan” featuring Sondra Lee’s blonde, blue-eyed “Indian Princess” Tiger Lily, Anthony (and Carla) draw from a songbook stretching across Disney’s “Pocahontas” to Cher’s “Half-Breed.” Not just autobiography, LOOKING FOR TIGER LILY is a coming-of-age story that's more than cowboys versus Indians.

Queer Horror: Seed of Chucky

Seed of Chucky.jpg

The Hollywood Theatre’s bimonthly series Queer Horror comes back from the beyond – just like our favorite killer dolls – with SEED OF CHUCKY! Sponsored by Finger Bang nail salon, this romantic engagement continues Queer Horror’s annual Valentine’s Day + Jennifer Tilly tradition, all hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi!

Written and directed by series creator and out queer filmmaker Don Mancini, 2005’s SEED OF CHUCKY drops Chucky (Brad Dourif) and Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) in Hollywood on the set of film-within-a-film “Chucky Goes Psycho,” starring Oscar nominee Jennifer Tilly herself! But this time the killer couple finds themselves raising their non-binary child Glen – or Glenda? – (Billy Boyd) and plotting to take over Jennifer Tilly and Redman’s bodies in order to establish a nuclear family all their own. Also starring the High Pope of Trash John Waters, SEED OF CHUCKY plays like KRAMER VS. KRAMER with a family of murderous dolls, and firmly establishes the CHILD’S PLAY franchise as the absolute queerest, funniest, and most risk-taking and genre-bending slasher series of all time!

Queer Horror: Candyman

candyman.jpg

The Hollywood Theatre’s bimonthly series QUEER HORROR closes out a year of slasher films with the classic CANDYMAN! Sponsored by Royale Brewing Co and Finger Bang nail salon, this 35mm screening summons Candyman herself in a pre-show starring the House of Shade’s Flawless Shade and Kimber Shade, all hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi!

Directed by Bernard Rose and based on a story by queer horror legend Clive Barker, 1992’s CANDYMAN stars Virginia Madsen as Helen Lyle, a white graduate student studying urban legends at the Cabrini-Green projects in Chicago. After hearing the tale of Candyman (Tony Todd) from resident Anne-Marie (Vanessa Williams), Helen and her friend Bernadette (Kasi Lemmons) soon find themselves face-to-face with a terrifying legend brought to life! One of the first mainstream films to confront the real-life horrors of racism and slavery in the horror genre (and to inspire such films as GET OUT by Jordan Peele, who is currently working on a remake) CANDYMAN hooks you with a lullaby-like score by Philip Glass and will keep you from ever looking into a mirror – or the mirror of American history – the same way again.

Queer Horror: Halloween H20

QueerHorrorHalloweenPageAd.png

The Hollywood Theatre’s bimonthly series QUEER HORROR celebrates the season – and QUEER HORROR’s limited edition BRIDE OF CARLASTEIN porter release with Royale Brewing Co – with HALLOWEEN H20! Sponsored by Royale Brewing Co and Finger Bang, this 20th anniversary screening opens with a preshow tribute to the night HE came home twenty years later (twenty years ago) hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi!

Directed by Steve Miner from a treatment by producer and out queer screenwriter Kevin Williamson (SCREAM), 1998’s HALLOWEEN H20 finds Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) living under an assumed identity as a private school headmistress in Northern California, two decades after she became the sole survivor of her brother’s bloody rampage in Haddonfield. When Michael returns to finish what began on Halloween night in 1978, Laurie must rediscover her inner survivor to save not just her own life but those of her only son (Josh Hartnett) and his girlfriend (Michelle Williams). Also starring LL Cool J and Joseph Gordon Levitt, HALLOWEEN H20 is the original sequel to ignore the rest of the franchise and pit Laurie Strode in a relentless fight to the death with Michael Myers – and in the process creating a feminist warrior more fierce than death itself.

Grantmakers in the Arts Conference: The Sovereign Now - Native Artists on the Frontlines of Social Justice

gia.png

Panel time and more info coming soon!

Native Artists on the Frontline of Social Justice focuses on the intersection between the arts and social justice efforts in indigenous communities throughout the United States. The session will feature NACF National Artist Fellows: Layli Long Soldier (Oglala Lakota), whose poem WHEREAS challenged an official “apology” to Native Americans by the US Federal Government; Allison Warden aka AKU-MATU (Iñupiaq), whose hip-hop performances embody different characters including an Ancestor from the Future and a polar bear who laments, "Oh, Where Did All the Ice Go?" Anthony Hudson aka Carla Rossi (Grand Ronde), whose Looking for Tiger Lily confronts white supremacy, complacency and the confusion of “mixed” identities; and Cannupa Hanska Luger (Mandan, Hidatsa/Arikara/Lakota), whose Mirror Shields were part of protest actions at Standing Rock Reservation. This panel will delve into tactics Native artists are taking up to push back on centuries of cultural oppression. We will revisit the Occupation of Alcatraz (1969-71), which established a precedent for Indian activism. John Trudell, Lakota activist on Alcatraz said, “We must be willing in our lifetime to deal with reality. It's not revolution we're after; it's liberation. We want to be free of a value system that's being imposed upon us. We do not want to participate in that value system. We don't want to change that value system. We want to remove it from our lives forever. Liberation. We want to be free”.

Panelists:

Thursday, August 23 at 9:30 PM | $10

The Hollywood Theatre’s bimonthly series QUEER HORROR takes a trip to summer camp for THE FINAL GIRLS! Sponsored by Royale Brewing Co and Finger Bang, this summertime screening opens with a preshow tribute to the greatest final girls of all time hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi!

Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson and written by Joshua John Miller and his husband M.A. Fortin, 2015’s THE FINAL GIRLS takes recently-orphaned Max (Taissa Farmiga) to a memorial screening of the ‘80s camp slasher film CAMP BLOODBATH starring her late actress mother (Malin Akerman). After a freak accident in the theater, Max and her friends find themselves trapped inside the movie itself, leaving Max to team up with her mother’s cinematic doppelganger against an omnipotent ‘80s slasher. Also starring Alia Shawkat and Adam Devine, THE FINAL GIRLS is like CABIN IN THE WOODS meets THE LAST ACTION HERO, but as a harrowing, hilarious, and heart-wrenching homage to the horror genre and the women who lead it.

QUEER HORROR: SCREAM

The Hollywood Theatre's bimonthly program QUEER HORROR takes its love for scary movies one step too far with SCREAM! Sponsored by Royale Brewing Company, this special Pride screening puts Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi in Drew Barrymore’s shoes – and ribbed sweater – in a pre-show tribute to the ‘90s slasher classic!

Directed by Wes Craven and written by out queer screenwriter Kevin Williamson, 1996’s SCREAM follows final girl Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) as a ghost-faced killer knocks off her friends one by one – and the only way to survive this real-life scary movie is to know the rules! Featuring Courtney Cox, Rose McGowan, David Arquette, and Drew Barrymore in one of the most iconic opening scenes of all time, SCREAM completely altered the course of millennial horror – inspiring its own franchise, TV series, and decades of imitators – and continued a century-long legacy of queer filmmakers shaping the cultural consciousness of an entire film genre with gleeful wit and buckets of blood.

Still from VESSEL by Carlos Key

The Northwest Film Center’s Fresh Film Northwest program is excited to announce the first ever Fresh Fear! Fresh Fear takes the very best (and most frightening) films submitted to the Fresh Film Northwest Festival over many years and compiles them together in one hour long program. We have found ten films that we think embody the ingenuity and youthfulness of Fresh Film while also showcase the versatility and talent present in the horror genre.

Fresh Film Northwest is an annual festival celebrating films made by teenagers and for teenagers. The festival is a juried survey of work by up-and-coming teen filmmakers living in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and British Columbia. Now in its 43rd year, the Festival recognizes individual talent, showcases model examples of how film arts can be taught in schools, and engages all of us in helping to build the Northwest regional youth media community of 13- to 19-year-olds. 

Fresh Fear will be held at 2:00 pm at the Whitsell Auditorium inside the Portland Art Museum on Saturday June 9th, 2018 with special guest host Queer Horror’s Carla Rossi. The event is free and open to the public. Please come down to support your local youth filmmakers and see some terrifying summer fun!

We Can Listen : Native Perspectives on Arts, Culture & Justice

Native Perspectives.jpg

Programmed by the Native Arts & Cultures Foundation, seven Native American artists share their perspectives through their art. The first half of the program will focus on the individual artists through film, art, performance and stories.

Topics in the panel discussion include an exploration on how the artists’ work address issues around visibility, identity, essentialism and stereotype. The discussion will also focus on how the artists’ work addresses justice issues that affect Native communities locally.

At We Can Listen, we strive to build community, educate, and share the positive impact that truly listening to diverse voices can have on us all. Through a cultural intersection of storytelling, film, music, and personal expression we support individuals and grass roots organizations as they raise their voices on compelling social justice issues Portlanders have demonstrated are important to them. We hope these personal stories will reach audiences they haven’t reached before, and provide the opportunity, for all who hear them, to increase their understanding of issues that require action and awareness in our greater community.

Moderated by Grammy-nominated local recording artist and theatrical performer Julianne R. Johnson, each We Can Listen event explores a topic of current, social, political, or
environmental importance in an atmosphere of trust and respect for both speakers and audience alike. The We Can Listen production team acts as a supportive base by providing stage, format, and promotion for local organizations as they design their own program to specifically address their concerns and causes in a way that is meaningful for them. Whatever issue is topical for the presenters is what our audience hears, and they hear it from the presenter’s perspective.
