Margaret Cho presents "Darling"

One of our most prolific stand-ups, Margaret Cho hits the road every year, continues to generate hour upon hour of hilarious new material, has created six feature-length specials — and can also add actress, author, singer-songwriter, and activist (she’s such a do-gooder there’s an official Margaret Cho day in San Francisco) to her resume. In between all that and trips to the tattoo parlor, Margaret taught herself guitar and how to ride a motorcycle. Although she is the youngest presenter at the WFiFF, she has selected the film of the greatest vintage: Darling, the searing story of Julie Christie as an ambitious model navigating ‘60s Swinging London at the dawn of the sexual revolution. Darling gave Christie the 1965 Academy Award for Best Actress – and gave Margaret Cho a film to adore for life, as she’s remarked: “It’s my favorite film…I know every line.” Margaret Cho will be here at the Cinefamily to perform, as well as introduce the film, and participate in a Q&A afterwards!
Dir. John Schlesinger, 1965, 35mm, 128 min.
