Cinema’s First Nasty Women: Queens of Destruction

Opens on March 30

Format: DCP Release Year: 2023

A program of rarely-seen silent films about feminist protest, slapstick rebellion, and suggestive gender play. These women organize labor strikes, bake (and weaponize) inedible desserts, explode out of chimneys, electrocute the police force, and assume a range of identities that gleefully dismantle traditional gender norms and sexual constraints. The films span a variety of genres. CINEMA’S FIRST NASTY WOMEN includes European and American silent films, all over a century old, sourced from thirteen international film archives and libraries, with all-new musical scores. – KinoLorber
