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

Vaginal Davis

Rising Stars, Falling Stars … Since 2007 at Arsenal and 2016 at silent green, Vaginal Davis has presented her finds from our archive over 100 times, always wearing a different dress, singing, dancing, reciting texts and hosting a post-screening drinks session with her co-curator, the pianist Daniel Hendrickson. We will reach to the stars with them for the last time when they show A. Edward Sutherland's EVERY DAY’S A HOLIDAY (1937), starring Mae West as a con artist, Louis Armstrong playing himself and five musketeers. (stss) (12.1.)
