Vaginal Davis Presents: Contemporary Vinegar Syndrome


Thanks to public demand, a repeat screening after five years, this time in silent green MARS Garten: Otto Preminger’s SKIDOO! (1968) shows the best sort of hippie life: drug benders, free love, body painting. Alongside Jackie Gleason and Carol Channing, the first black supermodel Donyale Luna also appears – as the girlfriend of “God”, played by Groucho Marx. Youth revolt in a mixture of a happening, gangster comedy and musical. How the worn-out print of the film found its way into the Arsenal collection continues to be the subject of wild speculation – Ms. Davis has some new insights, which she will be presenting with Daniel Hendrickson.
