Join us for a combination Happy Hour (And A Half) & Glittering Cave! We'll have a spooky punch to celebrate the most supernatural time of the year! And afterward, for our latest installment of The Glittering Cave, we will screen Anna Biller’s highly stylized 2016 film, The Love Witch.
5:30 to 6:30 p.m. will be happy hour (drop in!); 6:30 to 9 p.m. will be the film screening and discussion. Feel free to come for drinks and/or the movie (one or the other, or both!).
Maybe we’ll trade our best spells! The film is about a modern witch who is...lethally...good at casting love spells out of her Humboldt county gothic Victorian home. The film is drenched in vintage color and nods to film history, with a feminist twist. Biller says she wants “to make a cinema based on visual pleasure for women.”
About The Glittering Cave
Let’s watch and talk about films by women and nonbinary filmmakers! The Ruby's movie series, which we are calling The Glittering Cave, will serve as a platform for thinking about what it means to make and watch films with a gender-identity perspective.
Our first film was Cleo from 5 to 7 (1962), the first in a mini-retrospective of Agnès Varda, a pioneering French director. Our second film was The Watermelon Woman, a 1996 romantic comedy-drama film written, directed, and edited by Cheryl Dunye.
In order to talk about films, we’ll watch films regularly and devise novel ways to respond and spark discussion. Screenings could be linked by theme/question, or by maker. There may be guest visits and/or screening by local filmmakers. There may be an online blog, physical zine, or more slow-burning criticism/writing that honors what transpires at our meetings. The goal is to enlist multi-talented Rubies to learn something new about film as a community.
