This week: 'Salvation', 1987
Here at CineCult303 we are absolute believers that in diversity we can find SALVATION! So we've decided to show the boys the door for a bit and give our gloriously sleazy stage to the ladies.
Following on from last months In My Skin, we are proud to present a VHS exclusive screening of the legendary Beth B's SALVATION!: HAVE YOU SAID YOUR PRAYERS TODAY from 1987.
Sex. Power. Money. All in the name of God.
Salvation targets the rise of televangalism, parodying the hypocrisy and madness of media and religion as only the 80s knew how.
Unavailable on any format other than VHS (you won't even find this on youtube and forget about finding a trailer), this lost oddity stars Exene Cervenka (best known for her work with punk band X), Stephen McHattie (Pontypool, Watchmen) and, in his debut performance, Viggo Mortensen!
Beth B was a key figure in the New York underground of the 70s & 80s, who most recently released the documentary EXPOSED. In addition to this hardcore street cred, SALVATION features original music produced for the film by New Order & Cabaret Voltaire.
Join us! Praise be to VHS and the Cinema Underground!
