Vaginal Davis presents Rising Stars, Falling Stars – Letters from the wardrobe

Vaginal Davis at Arsenal 2

For years, the film expert Vaginal Davis has been diving into Arsenal's archive to bring gems to the surface. Now, our analogue films have moved to silent green in Wedding - and Ms. Davis is moving too! From May onwards, her screenings will take place only every three months but they will be in bigger and more glamorous surroundings, in the domed room of a former crematorium. For her last event at Potsdamer Platz on March 27, Ms. Davis has chosen a West Berlin cult film: In TAXI ZUM KLO (FRG 1980) the director Frank Ripploh plays himself as a gay teacher trying to keep his private life at drag queen balls or in public toilets and professional life in the classroom separate. As always, Vaginal Davis invites you all for a drink in the Red Foyer. We thank her and her comrade-in-arms Daniel Hendrickson for all the wonderful evenings in Kino 2 and we look forward to new beginnings!
