Friday Nights at BAM/PFA
Programmed by Steve Seid and the BAM/PFA Student Committee
Our annual student DJ extravaganza, featuring UC Berkeley students spinning to films from the BAM/PFA Collection. Reception and photo booth hosted by the BAM/PFA Student Committee.
Check this out. No: Czech this out. We lift the (iron) curtain on Valerie and Her Week of Wonders (Jaromil Jires, 1969), a cult classic that actually deserves its rep. This surreal cinema fable is half erotic tabloid, half gothic daydream, and all guilty pleasure. Valerie is a chaste thirteen-year-old whose awakening desire transforms her quaint village into an imp-infested realm of repressed sexuality. Everyone has their way and so too will our DJs who’ll strip Valerie’s wonders of sonority and add their own promiscuous scores. The evening begins with a surrealist fashion show.
