Vaginal Davis presents: Rising Stars, Falling Stars – Sweet 16 mm, Never Been Kissed

Vaginal Davis

In their search for forgotten 16-mm jewels in Arsenal's archive, Vaginal Davis and Daniel Hendrickson found a reddish print of George Cukor's 1960 musical LETS MAKE LOVE with Marilyn Monroe, Yves Montand and Tony Randall. Monroe sang her famous song "My Heart Belongs to Daddy" in this film. This month's "screening performance" is part of Goldsmiths' Berlin Summer School - DIY: Art, Film and Performance, which is taking place at silent green Kulturquartier from 28th August to 10th September and is run by Susanne Sachsse and Katya Sander.
