LEMORA: A CHILD'S TALE OF THE SUPERNATURAL
Co Presented with The Belcourt
Dir. Richard Blackburn | USA | 1973 | 80min. | PG | 16mm
Tuesday, August 2, 8:00 PM

Brought up by a licentious priest when her gangster father goes on the lam, 13-year-old Lila Lee (Rainbeaux Smith) receives a letter from the mysterious Lemora urging her to come to her ailing father's side. Lila embarks on a journey through the swampy Prohibition era deep South in search of the town of Astaroth, an eerie place inhabited by bands of feuding vampires, roving groups of lost children, and enough creepy old men to haunt every young child's dreams. The atmospheric adolescent coming-of-age allegory plays as a Lovecraftian take on Southern Gothic filtered through the low-budget lens of a European art film. Lost in relative obscurity for years, LEMORA's reputation has been somewhat restored thanks to cult cinephiles who laud it as an eccentric and truly unique dark fairy tale about growing up subjected to the unrelenting, lascivious male Gaze.
