In conjunction with MOCA Tucson’s exhibition:
A NIGHT ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER: THE ART OF MIDNIGHT FILMS, FREE THEATER, AND THE PSYCHEDELIC UNDERGROUND SAN FRANCISCO 1969-1973
EV presents The Cockettes “A flamboyant piece of hippie history gets its due in Bill_Weber and David_Weissman’s loving look at the San Francisco drugs-and-drag theatre troupe. The filmmakers capture the spirit of life in a late-sixties commune as well as the Cockettes’ hallucinogenic romps—performances foisted on audiences who were in the mood for wigged-out frivolity. With its archival footage and hilariously frank interviews, the movie makes for a ragtag portrait of a cultural moment when free expression reigned supreme.”
— Bruce Diones, The New Yorker
Join us tonight as we bid a fond farewell to MOCA’s Jocko Weyland as he concludes his run of cultural innovation here in Tucson and heads off to new adventure!. A special bonus screening of one of Jocko’s subcultural faves “Red and Rosy” will happen too!
