In person: Bradford Nordeen – director, Dirty Looks NYC.

Associated with New York’s East Village drag scene of the late 1980s, Tom Rubnitz (1956-1992) crafted low-budget, candy-colored video fantasies, mingling pop culture and counter-culture in outlandish conceptions including mock infomercials and cooking shows, such as Strawberry Shortcut and the infamous Pickle Surprise. This evening’s program includes numerous, never-before seen works featuring performance luminaries like RuPaul, Ann Magnuson, Lady Bunny, and David Wojnarowicz, and is curated by Dirty Looks NYC, a traveling, New York- based queer experimental screening series.

Midnight Lullaby, video, 1982 – 9mins.
