Flaming Creatures

A panoply of pornographic vignettes or a postmodern work of hormonal, hyperventilating art? Jack Smith’s masterful featurette still prompts hot ’n’ heavy debates, and its imagery still has the power to shock and thrill. It’s required viewing for anyone interested in the history of censorship, underground film and camp culture. It screens with the silent short (no director credited) "The Most Wonderful Fans of the World" (1927).
