Join us October 18th, 7-9pm at the Media Common Theatre for a special screening of Douglas Sirk's The Bourbon Street Blues (1979). This short film is a rarely seen and currently unavailable Sirk and Fassbinder collaboration based on Tennesse Williams' play The Lady Larkspur Lotion. We are lucky to access this film with the support of the Hochschule für Fernsehen und Film München.

The event will feature a short introduction to the film by Jillian Vasko and will be followed by a discussion. The film will be screened with English subtitles and is about 25 minutes long.

In addition to the screening, as of October 7th Innis College Library will host a small display of fan art depicting images from the cinematic universe of Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
