SCREENING

Pink Narcissus

Ongoing

35mm. With Bobby Kendall, Don Brooks. With a background in still photography and stage costume design but no training in film, Bidgood shot his cult classic Pink Narcissus on the cheap, using 8mm and 16mm stock. A series of homoerotic fantasies, the film has a singular aesthetic that is at once highly camp and deliberately trashy. Its charming naiveté evokes such early film pioneers as Méliès and de Chomón.

Free with Museum admission.
