Elevator Girls in Bondage with Cockette Rumi Missabu in Person

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Oddball Films welcomes original Cockettes member Rumi Missabu with a screening and DVD re-release party for the 1972 cult classic Elevator Girls in Bondage. This audacious piece of madness and nostalgia was directed by Michael Kalmen and stars Rumi as well as other fellow Cockettes Pristine Condition, Hibiscus and Miss Harlow. The underpaid staff of a seedy hotel rises up in revolt and by the time head elevator girl Maxine (the fabulous Rumi) starts spouting a surreal mix of folk songs and Marxist maxisms, followed by an uproariously explicit sex scene, you'll be ready to join the cause. Rarely has the dissection of exploitation been so silly, or so much fun to watch. A mad, camp satire on almost every type of film from gangster, 40's musicals and monster, to propaganda and pornography, Elevator Girls seems a piece of irrelevant nonsense until satire after satire hits home with unnerving accuracy. Then, in the final sequence, the film bursts into genius. Plus, Rumi will be presenting an additional half-hour of surprise clips from other film work/music videos as well as a few short live performances to add to the fabulousness. Films include Interiors, I Scare Myself, Tiptoe Past the Witch and Ruminations. With Live Performances by Carl with Records, Donna Personna, and Rumi, Patalo Alfonso, Vinc Costa and Shun Trenholm in The Vampire. A sparkling new re-mastered 3rd edition of the DVD will be available for sale during the event both lipstick kissed and personally autographed for $20.
