Female Trouble met Divine (midden)
To celebrate the 5th birthday of De Nieuwe Regentes, during the month of May they’ll have special screenings with guests and many surprises!
On Tuesday 15 May curators and artists from the University of Amsterdam will show off with queer and gender nonconforming identities in films and art. Drift through the art installation in Het Diepe, then float up to the surface at the Grote Zaal where the screening of two iconic films will take place.
19:00 – Start of the program: art installation by Chris Baas, Justine Gensse and Simone Aumaj
20:15 – Students’ introduction of film program + Un chant d’amour
20:45 – Female Trouble
Un Chant d’Amour [A Song of Love] (Jean Genet, 1950)
A poetic view into the imagined romance of two prisoners in France. In his only film, writer/artist Jean Genet celebrates the beauty of love, even in the most unexpected places.
Female Trouble (John Waters, 1974)
John Waters’ trash spectacular demolished the boundaries of good taste and heteronormative gender constraints. Starring the legendary drag performer Divine, teenage girl Dawn Davenport’s life takes a dark and criminal turn when her parents fail to give her cha-cha heels for Christmas.
