Expanded Cinema: El sexo fuerte (The Stronger Sex)
June 25, 2010; 7:30 p.m.; Gallery BRSVP on Facebook
Programmed by Kathy Geritz and Steve Seid
Celebrating the hundredth anniversary of Mexico’s Revolución, we bring you something truly revolting: El sexo fuerte (The Stronger Sex), a rousing film about two unsuspecting men shipwrecked upon the shores of Eden, an Art Deco kingdom ruled by beautiful amazons. When sultry Queen Eva spies Adán, the cattle rancher from Jalisco, hearts stop and nations fall. See men sold at auction, fetching the price of 2,000 cows! See scantily clad female mariachis serenading the enslaved charros! See harems populated by doddering old men! See raygun-wielding amazons succumb to the scent of man! To further celebrate, we’ll supply a cart of churros and piñatas swollen with sweets—indulge in la vida dulce.
Get a free ride to L@TE on the Mexican Bus! The much-baubled bus will pick up passengers at downtown Berkeley BART at 6:30 and 7 p.m., and return from BAM/PFA to BART around 9:15 after the close of the program. This service is provided with the support of the Consulate General of Mexico in San Francisco.
El sexo fuerte is part of the PFA series El Futuro Está Aquí: Sci-Fi Classics from Mexico.
Preceded at 6 p.m. by local disco-tráfico DJ Juan Luna-Avin, spinning the latest in electronica híbrida from Mexico. Wine and beer will be available for purchase.
