Jack Smith's experimental opus NORMAL LOVE returns to the Roxy Cinema TriBeCa on November 20th at 3pm!


Jack Smith's NORMAL LOVE is a feature-length experimental film loosely inspired by horror movies, particularly from the 1930s and '40s, as well as the work of Dominican-born B-movie star Maria Montez. Made following Smith’s infamous feature FLAMING CREATURES (1962-63), which caught the unfavorable attention of American censors, NORMAL LOVE includes a cast of fantastical characters ranging from a mermaid, played by Mario Montez—whose stage name was conceived in homage to the famous actress—and a mummy, enacted by Angus MacLise, the original drummer for the New York band the Velvet Underground.

Programmed in conjunction with Filmmaker’s Co-op and Museum of Sex.
