Strictly Brohibited Presents
Lisa Cholodenko’s feature writing/directing debut, a Brattle favorite from way back, HIGH ART stars Radha Mitchell as an ambitious photo magazine editor who has a chance meeting with her upstairs neighbor, a retired, formerly renowned art photographer (Sheedy). As the two start a relationship that moves from fascination to professional advancement to romance, the question of who is using who and to what end becomes harder and harder to identify.
Tonight’s screening is presented by Strictly Brohibited and will be followed by a conversation about the film. Strictly Brohibited is a Boston-area screening series that encourages women and gender-expansive movie lovers to engage with film both on the screen and behind the camera. In an effort to foster a supportive community, Strictly Brohibited regularly hosts screenings and discussions held without cis male audience members. For this special screening, however, everyone is invited – though during the discussion to follow, preference will be given to questions and comments from women and gender-expansive guests.
