Vaginal Davis Presents Contemporary Vinegar Syndrome

The new series by Ms. Davis, the archivist who delves most deeply into our basement, and Daniel Hendrickson, takes place in different places. This month, it’s in the Prinzessinengarten that the two will present an open-air program entitled “Borscht Belt Modalities”. They will show a 16-mm print of A JUMPIN' NIGHT AT THE GARDEN OF EDEN (Michal Goldman, USA 1988) that follows Kapelye and Boston’s Klezmer Conservatory Band and was the first film to document the revival of klezmer music. This will be preceded by GRANPA SAM (2006), a series of celebrity photographs, commented by Vaginal Davis herself and Marc Siegel. (6.9.)
