CAAM is thrilled to co-present two great films at Frameline35: San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival, running June 16-26, 2011.
MIWA: A JAPANESE ICON
The glamorous heroine of Kinji Fukasaku’s 1968 film Black Lizard was played by a man, Akihiro Miwa. The film looks back at the unique destiny of a man who has spent 50 years defying questions of gender, all the while remaining an extremely popular celebrity in Japan, thanks to his films (acting for Kitano and dubbing for Miyazaki), songs, television programmes and handbooks for young girls.
Madame X, the first feature film of Lucky Kuswandi, lets us have it all at once: the action-loaded superhero movie, the never-ending-laughter trashiness of queer comedy, and the social consciousness of political film.
Keep up with the CAAM Facebook page for the chance to win tickets to these screenings.
