For the new year, AGLIFF–Polari is teaming up with our friends at Free and Queer Cinema to bring you an evening of queer superheroes and outrageous community fun. Get ready to have all your superhero fantasies come true with the camp-tastic transgender superhero film MADAME X (Indonesia, 2010), local celebrity host Rebecca Havemeyer, and a line-up of queer superhero talent like Austin has never seen.
Date: Tuesday, Janurary 29th, 2013
Time: Doors 7pm, Show 8pm
Where: The ND (501 Brushy Street, Austin, TX 78702)
SCREENING: MADAME X is an action-packed, spectacled glitter-bomb in which a hairdresser-by-day becomes an ass-kicking transgender superhero by night, battling bigotry and fascism with high-flying stiletto kicks and a mighty queer flip of the wrist. As Variety says, MADAME X “is just as much fun as it sounds, packaging the irreverent, often riotous antics and a clear pro-diversity message in a superhero-movie format delivered with a big, curly-lashed wink.” Unavailable elsewhere, we are excited to finally bring this film to Austin!
PRE-SCREENING ENTERTAINMENT: Before the show we give you a Pow!-Blam!-Splat! of local superhero might, including:
1) A special performance by Zane Coxx, Austin’s own transgender wrestling titan and two time TCW Woman’s Champion!
2) Your favorite superhero theme songs, performed live by fabulous caped crusader Fantasy!
3) FREE superhero facepainting by local artist extraordinaire Marcus Sanchez!
