Each month The Revival House brings you the very best in homo-grown cinema from decades past. On Wednesday, September 17th The Revival House will present the contemporary classic, “Chop Suey”, by photographer Bruce Weber.

“Chop Suey” ( U.S.A. , 2001) is equal parts documentary, fashion editorial and beefcake flick.  Following the career of young Weber discovery, Peter Johnson, we are given a bird’s eye view into the homoerotic vision that has been the hallmark of Weber’s career.  With these images juxtaposed alongside Weber’s fascination for the life and music of 60’s Jazz vocalist, Francis Faye, Chop Suey takes the viewer on an unforgettable and singularly sensual ride of site and sound.

The screening will open with “Photo Finish” (U.S.A., 1977) a hardcore short by director Arch Brown which explores the relationship between a photographer and his young discovery.  (This will conclude our 3-part series of queer, hardcore art films.)
