Church of Film

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 an elegant vintage Portland ballroom (or vintage theater), we build a like-minded community of the curious and the cine-obsessed. All are welcome, as are your creative suggestions.

FREAK ORLANDO
Director: 
Ulrike Ottinger
Country: 
West Germany
Year: 
1981
Runtime: 
126 minutes

Gender-morphing time traveler Orlando enters Freak City, a consumerist utopia/dystopia run by the deranged inmates of modernity’s mutant extremities. Their journey, unfolding in chapters which cycle through her shifting identity, brings them through strange landscapes, even stranger people, and unbelievable worlds of madness. Designed and directed by radical provocateur Ulrike Ottinger, FREAK ORLANDO is a brilliant work of absolute surrealist madness, with eye-pummeling visuals, towering set pieces and high fashion costuming on steroids. Starring Magdalena Montezuma, and maybe an amazing uncredited cameo from then little-known Nina Hagen…
