- VALENCIA Here is but one of its 20 revolving casts.
This afternoon at the Harvard Exit brings Valencia, the experimental film adaptation of Michelle Tea's beloved autobiography, where each of the book's 20 chapters are brought to the screen by a different director (including Cheryl Dunye, Jill Soloway, and Silas Howard) working with a different cast. Screens at 4:30 pm, hull info here.
And tonight at the Northwest Film Forum brings Ian Bell's Reading Rainbow: "Flamingos Forever", a one-of-a-kind theatrical event I'll allow to describe itself. From the SLGFF program:
Ian Bell, creator of the Brown Derby Series and director of the Moore Theatre’s Hedwig & the Angry Inch (with Jerick Hoffer), presents an informal reading of John Waters’s screenplay “Flamingos Forever,” the never-produced sequel to PINK FLAMINGOS, wherein, after 15 years living in gas station lavatories in Boise, Divine comes out of hiding to claim the title of Filthiest Person Alive. Bell will blow this outrageous piece of smut off the page and into the dirty mouths of Seattle gay celebri-trash Jackie Hell, Marcus Wilson, Rebecca Davis, Scott Shoemaker, Freddy Molitch, and others. One night only—you’ve been warned!
