AN EVENING WITH KATRINA DEL MAR
Throughout her decades-long career as a photographer and filmmaker, Katrina del Mar has been described as intimidatingly badass (The Huffington Post), a speedy person (Eileen Myles), and a producer of filth of the highest quality.
Her obsession with Americana iconography pinups, burlesque, superheroes and leather-jacketed toughs strikes an immediate dichotomy with her feeling most at home among queer outcasts caked in the urban grime on New York. Typically armed with an 8mm camera, her extreme close-ups and jarringly visceral cutting cast a beautiful, flickering spell. She and her friends skaters, musicians, and punks become larger than life figures with an unforgettable allure.
In addition to showing her iconic, rarely-screened GANG GIRL TRILOGY, Spectacle is proud to welcome del Mar for an overview of her career. The program features scuzzy No-Wave video experiments, rock and roll lesbian vampires, episodes of her plotless experimental hangout webseries delMarvelous, and a look at her upcoming feature doc about her artist/mail carrier father (plus other surprises).
Special thanks to Katrina del Mar and Kristen Fitzpatrick.
