Trip And Go Naked – Weds 9/30 7:30 at Spectacle Theater
The filmmaker, Chris Fiore, will be present
TRIP AND GO NAKED is a defiantly, deliriously, and joyously, obscene film. TRIP falls squarely into a time honored tradition of underground cinema, breaking sexual barriers and flaunting taboos, the film is a cavalcade of performances intended to titillate, shock, and terrify.
TRIP AND GO NAKED documents a transgressive variety show that took place in the dead of night over the course of the sweltering New York summer of 1995. Shot in the East Village’s famous Pyramid Club, the film chronicles the efforts of the indomitable Mistress Otter and her band of merry perverts, constantly upping a twisted ante in an escalating series of emotionally intense and dangerous performances. Though it’s definitely not a film for the squeamish, one of the big surprises here is that it’s also quite funny.
In 2004 TRIP AND GO NAKED won the Excellence In Sexual Theater award at the Arlene’s Grocery Picture Show and was featured at The Coney Island film festival.
Celebrating the twentieth anniversary of its shooting, this Millennium Film Workshop screening will be the third time this rarely screened film will be witnessed by the public.
