Cinecult303: 'Pink Narcissus'


CineCult303 is proud to present James Bidgood's psychedelic, erotic trip, PINK NARCISSUS.

Part of CineCult303's Queer Season, Bidgood's 1971 film PINK NARCISSUS concerns (with it's very loose plot) the fantasies of a prostitute (the gorgeous Bobby Kendall) as he relaxes in his apartment.

His fantasies span from ancient Rome, to Spanish matadors, to being the keeper of an all male harem.

All the while, Bidgood's astounding cinematography and art design offer a feast for the senses, with incredible costuming and saturated colours.

It's basically Gay Fantasia, is what we're saying.

The film was originally released sans Bidgood's name, crediting the work to "Anonymous", due to the erotic gay content. For years, it was speculated that the film was the work of Andy Warhol or Kenneth Anger. However, it was Bidgood, who painstakingly assembled the movie, shooting it over the span of a decade, almost entirely inside his small NYC apartment.

Pink Narcissus itself only runs 71 minutes, so there'll be a fun short or two to play with it.

The screening starts at 7.30 sharp, but drop by at 7pm for a drink and a chat.

As always, CineCult303 asks for a gold coin donation to keep the weirdness alive.

CineCult303 is a not-for-profit film night dedicated to keeping the weird alive. Gold coin donation for entry. All proceeds will be donated to local arts organisations to keep the weird growing.
