Flesh For Frankenstein 3D

July 16 10:10 pm

Talks and Q&As / 2022 


“To know death, Otto, you have to fuck life… in the gall bladder!”
Revelation Film Festival and Black Maria Film Collective are proud to bring you the 1973 camp classic, Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey’s Flesh for Frankenstein, presented in the new 4K restoration AND in the original anaglyph ‘SpaceVision’ 3D!
 
Cult icon Udo Kier plays sexually-repressed pervert Baron von Frankenstein who is obsessive in his pursuit of creating a master Serbian race by bringing to life a perfect specimen of a man and woman – his Adam and Eve. Warhol superstar Joe Dallesandro also stars as a libidinous stableboy whose friend is mistakenly taken for the Baron’s experiments.
 
So prepare yourselves for a perversely hilarious, gory, and immersive take on the Frankenstein story that could have only come from Warhol and his Factory staples! 3D glasses will be provided.

Black Maria proposes that the most important aspects in inspiring an independent filmmaking culture is the need to realize and resurface the overlooked and underappreciated cinematic artefacts over the last century. Therefore, one of the quintessential aspects of Black Maria is to screen these forgotten gems for the collective such that it inspires discussion and offers a hub for filmmakers and cinephiles alike.

We believe that the films curated in our screening catalogue are those in which should be recognized for their context, independence, experimentation and cultural or cinematic significance. As such, none of the films we will be showing will be censored or omitted as we believe in free speech and film as an experience.
Additionally, we aim to offer as much additional content and insight into each film we screen with input from a film’s director, producer, cast, crew and/or experts through the inclusion of Q&A’s, interviews, exclusive pre-recording introductions, essays and/or additional material from behind the scenes of the film. With this we hope to provide as much insight as possible for our audience to properly understand how some of the most important films were created.

Proceeding each screening, discussion between participants will be inevitable and, in turn, so will networking. All in all, Black Maria’s events will perform multiple functions in order to foster a ‘hub’ for filmmakers and cinephiles to congregate and network, without the connotations of “networking”.
