Clinton Street Theater says
Church of Film is a weekly gathering for the reverence and worship of cinema. Our hope is to bring the long lost, forgotten, overlooked, obscure or unavailable to a hungry audience unable to get their fill from the local theater offerings.

Director: Toshio Matsumoto
Country: Japan
Year: 1969
Runtime: 107 minutes

In the hidden dens of Tokyo's homosexual clubs, drag queen Eddie vies for the heart of club-owner Gonda.

One of the first films to seriously explore transgender culture and homosexuality, Toshio Matsumoto's masterpiece is a breathless and revolutionary work of cinema, and reportedly inspired Stanley Kubrick's Clockwork Orange!
