Jack Smith's NORMAL LOVE Returns to the Roxy Cinema Tribeca
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.
