Today At The Clinton Street Theater

c-of-f-1

 

Church of Film is a weekly gathering for the reverence and worship of cinema. Our hope is to bring the long lost, forgotten, overlooked, obscure or unavailable to a hungry audience unable to get their fill from the local theater offerings. And in so doing, in the cozy darkness of our vintage theater, we build a like-minded community of the curious and the cine-obsessed. All are welcome, as are your creative suggestions.

Other locations include Century Bar on Sandy Boulevard and the North Star Ballroom. Check the CofF Facebook page for more information about other screenings.

Church of Film presents ARREBATO

CHURCH OF FILM ARREBATO POSTER

Ivan Zulueta’s ARREBATO is the most notorious film to come out of post-Franco Spain. Shot under peculiar circumstance (to say the least…), it shocked its producers and the censors, ended its celebrated director’s career, and was buried away. Now it is a monstrous cult classic of art house excess.

(CW: addiction, explicit drug abuse).

Spain
Year: 
1979
Runtime: 
105 minutes

Jose, a disillusioned horror director and addict, receives a mysterious cassette tape in the mail. It is from Pedro, the cousin of a former lover, a strange youth simultaneously enraptured by substance abuse and filmmaking. He had once aspired to recreate on celluloid the altered perceptions of reality and time experienced on his drugs… but his aspirations advanced. What unravels is a Lynchian tale of self-destruction, and a camera that may be a vampire!
