City of Lost Souls (Rosa von Praunheim, 1983) 1hr 30m | 18/11 at CCA Glasgow
Matchbox Cineclub join forces with Queer Classics once again to bring you Rosa von Praunheim's rarely-screened trans punk musical CITY OF LOST SOULS (Stadt der Verlorenen Seelen, 1983), starring Jayne County, Angie Stardust and Tara O'Hara, with a special introductory live performance from Sgàire Wood.
SYNOPSIS | "A group of American rock singers, dancers and acrobats live in Berlin. They are blacks, gays, transsexuals and Jews. What New York was for the 1960s, Berlin was for the '80s. Ein groteskes Musical."
"Behind the lurid façade of Praunheim’s film, lies a powerful dialogue about the queer and trans struggle for representation, which remains highly pertinent over 30 years later." Another Gaze.
