Harpur Cinema – Funeral Parade of Roses

November 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$4.00

Funeral Parade of Roses – Toshio Matsumoto – Japan – 1969 – 107 min.
Directed by Toshio Matsumoto, possibly the most prominent Japanese avant-garde filmmaker who died recently, Funeral Parade of Roses features a drag queen Peter (as Eddie, a hostess at a gay bar in Tokyo) and retells the Athenian tragedy, Oedipus Rex. The film had been unavailable in the U.S. for decades, and it was restored for re-release in 2017. It is “one of the most subversive and intoxicating films of the late 1960s: a headlong dive into a dazzling, unseen Tokyo night-world of drag queen bars and fabulous divas, fueled by booze, drugs, fuzz guitars, performance art and black mascara” (Cinelicious Pics and Cinefamily).
