QUEER/ART/FILM: John Cameron Mitchell presents "Zero de Conduite" & "The Girl Most Likely To..."!

Since its inception in 2009, the Queer/Art/Film series has been called one of the most exciting, innovative monthly film nights in NYC — and Cinefamily is thrilled to have Q/A/F co-curator Adam Baran in town for an extended stay, to host an L.A.-centric edition of the series. It all kicks off March 22nd, with award-winning director John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Rabbit Hole, Shortbus) as the inaugural guest. John will present a very special double feature on the subject of schoolchildren who get revenge on their tormentors! First up is Jean Vigo’s 1933 classic Zéro de Conduite (the prototypical bad-kids-fight-back film that influenced both Truffaut’s The 400 Blows and Lindsey Anderson’s If…) — and, after the break, it’s silly, screwy and singular 1973 TV “movie-of-the-week” The Girl Most Likely To…, from the mind of Joan Rivers! A film about a girl who has plastic surgery (written by a woman who years later became the industry’s biggest client), it stars Stockard Channing as an ugly duckling who, after reconstructive face work, becomes a ravishing beauty exacting murderous revenge on her college tormentors. Trust us, it’s an awesome and unique double feature you can’t miss!
Zéro de Conduite Dir. Jean Vigo, 1933, 35mm, 41 min.
The Girl Most Likely To… Dir. Lee Phillips, 1973, 35mm, 73 min.
