hosted by Andrew Repasky McElhinney (director of CHRONICLE OF CORPSES, CHRISTMAS DREAMS)The Underground legend surfaces for one night only!The 25th anniversary 4K digital restoration of director Andrew Repasky McElhinney's third movie, A Maggot Tango.  Filmed when he was sixteen years old in the woods and old public buildings around Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, A Maggot Tango is now in the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York.Shot as a silent on B&W Ilford 16MM negative film, and matched in post-production to an electric playlist on the soundtrack, A Maggot Tango follows the descent of a young woman named "A" (18-year-old Erica Downie, in a committed and fearless performance) who runs away from home, and perhaps kills herself, only to become trapped in an increasingly surreal nightmare filled with her disturbed parents, an angel, a dead little boy, a car crash, two random polysexual hook-ups, drugs, cannibals, and the specter of Death herself as well as several tango dance sequences.Operatic, strange, grotesque, violently comic. Inspired by silent movies, the avant-garde cinema of the 20s, 30s, 40 & 50s, the underground films of the 1960s, and the cult movies of the 1970s. Part lyrical art film, part seedy sexploitation picture. Come celebrate A Maggot Tango, a pivotal early work from Andrew Repasky McElhinney, one of our great contemporary film directors.Director, cast and crew in attendance.Second feature:KIDS (1995 / 100 minutes)"That summer we made A Maggot Tango, we would film during the day, and go to clubs, or house parties, or diners, or go see Kids at night. Kids was 18+ so we had to get around that but we must-of seen the picture five or six times. If those kids weren't us, they were certainly kids we knew, and it was so thrilling, empowering, and sad, to see a version of our maladjusted world, up there on screen, as we were living it."—Andrew Repasky McElhinney Photographer turned director Larry Clark and screenwriter Harmony Korine's very-90s classic is a prurient, reactionary scare film rubbing your face in the way it is. However, reactionary melodrama is transformed by breathtaking cinematography (Eric Edwards), editing (Christopher Tellefsen) and raw and fearless performances from the cast (including the big screen debuts of future stars Rosario Dawson and Chloë Sevigny).Admission is FREE
