Dave's staff pick, FEMINA RIDENS, is perhaps the most remarkable lost pulp film from the ’60s! This bizarro, fast-moving and never-not-entertaining battle of the sexes combines remarkable pop art production design, a slinky, sought-after soundtrack, and a story that crosses genres into something really far out. The film looks like sexploitation at first, but quickly becomes much stranger, more ambitious and more wonderful.

Also known as THE LAUGHING WOMAN and THE FRIGHTENED WOMAN, FEMINA RIDENS is an intensely colorful movie, and English-language prints have faded to red. This presentation, however, will combine an 85-minute digital screening of the full uncut English-language version, followed by the first three reels (60 minutes) of an Italian-language Technicolor print, allowing you to bathe in the vivid colors and intense production design. Trust us, you’ll want to.
