There have been some great Bar Trash special events as we gather together on special occasions to watch films (and have a few drinks!). If you’d like to talk about bringing the trash to your event or venue, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
#021: Xmas Special: CHRISTMAS EVIL d. Lewis Jackson (1980 / USA / 100mins)
Rule Zero 21 DEC 2022 [full event info]
A deranged department-store Santa becomes a cold-blooded killer in this taut psycho-thriller that spends time looking back at the poor fellow’s life.
“Forget WHITE CHRISTMAS, IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE and all the other hackneyed trash. Go for the best seasonal film of all-time, CHRISTMAS EVIL.”John Waters aka ‘The Pope of Trash’
I complemented CHRISTMAS EVIL with a ‘Naughty or Nice’ Confessional, inviting audience members to step onto the stage to explain themselves. The revelations were mind-blowing… but what happens in Bar Trash, stays in Bar Trash.
#047: Queer Fest Special: KENNETH ANGER’S MAGICK LANTERN SHORTS d. Kenneth Anger (1947-65 / USA / various)
Genesis Cinema 15 JUL 2023 [full event info]
Kenneth Anger’s enormously influential short films serve up a mind-bending cocktail of homoeroticism, symbolism and occultism, mixed with a pioneering use of pop and classical music. His controversial life and career – Anger also wrote trash-talking dumpster fire, Hollywood Babylon – are spiked with falsehoods, radicalism, censorship (leading to a landmark civil rights judgement), violence, and scandal.
