WE'RE GOING TO: CITY OF LOST SOULS, A DIRTY LOOKS + TRANSLADY FANZINE SCREENING

CITY OF LOST SOULS
(Stadt der Verlorenen Seelen), 1983
a film by Rosa von Praunheim

Angie Stardust has a lot on her plate, running a boarding house called Pension Stardust filled with misfit lodgers: an erotic trapeze duo, a magikal group therapist, assorted layabouts, nymphomaniacs and Lila (Jayne County), a Southern blonde who dreams of Hollywood. These tenants also staff Angie’s fast food enterprise, Burger Queen. But when Lila gets knocked up by a Communist who promises to make her a superstar on East Berlin television, the real havoc ensues. Rosa Von Praunheim directs this mostly American cast in a trans musical spectacular that has been described as “Hedwig and the Angry Inch… in reverse.”

The event will also feature a complimentary publication with writings by TRANSLADY FANZINE publisher, Amos Mac, Bruce Benderson Justin Shock and more. Advance copies of TRANSLADY FANZINE will be available before its official release at the New York Book Fair.
