BIRDS OF PARADISE
FASHION IN FILM FESTIVAL
AT THE MUSEUM OF MOVING IMAGE
This absolutely fabulous program explores costume and fashion in European and American cinema by focusing on episodes in cinema history which distinctly portray costume, adornment, and styling to create an eye pleasing sense of visual delight. Though the program had some what of a bumpy start it's opening night last week, the festival quickly picked up steam the rest of the weekend, with sumptuous screenings of silent films Secrets of the Orient, Male and Female, Kenneth Anger's Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome, and the dream like Pink Narcissus.
This weekend looks to be just as delicious– full of visual displays of glamour and utter decadence. Kicking off tonight, the festival continues with a gender bending Steven Arnold Special, followed later this weekend with screenings of 1940's Cobra Woman and the program Drag Glamour. A must see.
