Church of Film: The Mad Fox

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.

With brilliant colors, highly stylized and strange expressionist sets, and borrowing from Butoh, Kabuki, and Noh theater, Tomu Uchida’s THE MAD FOX is a fantastical, bizarre, and captivating fable about a love that is mad and hopeless, and the divinities and men that are crushed under its power.

When a white rainbow is cast over a blood red night sky, a famous astrologer decodes the omen for the Emperor.

And he finds her… but perhaps she is a fox demon in disguise?
