Squeaky Wheel and Dreamland with Just Buffalo are pleased to present April’s Reel Queer film screening, the groundbreaking erotic whirlwind Bijou. “A living, breathing sensual and sensory experience”, (Dangerous Minds) Wakefield Poole’s 1972 film is a transformative experience. The screening will be followed by discussion led by curator RE Katz. Special thanks to Vinegar Syndrome.
Bijou @ Reel Queer is presented in conjunction with Just Buffalo’s STUDIO reading featuring Eileen Myles, which will take place at the Evergreen Commons on Thurs, April 27, 2017 at 7:30pm.
75 min, 1972
“Acclaimed director Wakefield Poole’s second feature, the surreal and trippy Bijou, set a new standard for explicit cinema when it opened in 1972. The film concerns a construction worker (Bill Harrison) who witnesses a car accident and pockets the female victim’s purse in which he discovers her invitation to a club named Bijou.” – Vinegar Syndrome
