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 <i>The Cockettes</i> “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
