Doors open at 6:00 pm for drinks, snacks, and a chance to talk to the screenwriter Don Fried and filmmaker A. Branham Dyer regarding their upcomng feature film project "Phoenix" the movie.
Show starts at 7:00 pm | The Rehearsed Reading of Blood Privilege tells the story of Hungarian Countess Elizabeth Bathory who, according to legend, sexually tortured and murdered over six hundred young women to bathe in their blood as part of a beauty ritual. However, she may not have committed the crimes of which she was accused and convicted. What is certain is that she lent a large sum of money to the Hungarian king and had the bad judgment to insist that he pay her back.
"Don Fried gives us a clever and intelligent woman, an efficient operator and a prototype feminist battling against male and royal control. This is a picture of the way someone can be schooled into transgression, of how the law can be followed and yet manipulated, and how power can be concentrated in an elite, none of which has been limited to sixteenth-century Slovakia".
