QUEENS OF DESTRUCTION

Thursday, August 25

(1903-1919, DCP, 85min) Chaos reigns in this program of delirious slapstick. Please join us for a special sneak preview of Cinema’s First Nasty Women: a 4-disc DVD/Blu-ray collection featuring 99 feminist, archival silent films with all-new original music! It will be released by Kino Lorber on August 30, 2022. You can pre-order your copy today! This free screening includes 11 tantalizing short films. A teenage miscreant named Léontine floods her house and flies away, Black actress Bertha Regustus desegregates white public space with her contagious laughter, Rosalie (Sarah Duhamel) provokes a dancing outbreak with her new phonograph, a housemaid named Mary Jane explodes through the chimney, Cunégonde (Little Chrysia) tyrannizes her spouse with a lasso, Tilly (Alma Taylor) and Sally (Chrissie White) bulldoze a tea party, and lesbian sensation Fay Tincher brings queer erotic vibes to an all-girls boarding school.

*Cinema’s First Nasty Women is curated by Maggie Hennefeld, Laura Horak, and Elif Rongen-Kaynakçi. This screening is made possible by the University of Minnesota’s Imagine Fund as part of the Twin Cities Silent Film Project, organized by Maggie Hennefeld, Associate Professor of Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature.
