Bruno & Earlene Go to Vegas
Dir: Simon Savory, UK/USA, 2013, 92 mins
Saturday 12th April, 11am, £7.60
Hackney Picturehouse, 270 Mare Street, E8 1HE

Earlene runs away to Venice Beach to escape an old flame and falls in with bohemian intersex skater Bruno. Home rental scams, dangerous ways of raising cash and a headlong plunge into the desert bring the pair into contact with sexually confused carjackers, Scottish ex-strippers, tap-dancing drag queens and like minded runaways – all on their own journeys of self discovery. British filmmaker Simon Savory traveled to the California desert to make his debut feature, and emerges with a wild and visually striking ode to self discovery. A truly refreshing counterculture movie.

Fifi Howls from Happiness
Mitra Farahani, Iran, 2013, 96 mins
Saturday 12th April , 1pm, £7.60
Hackney Picturehouse, 270 Mare Street, E8 1HE


Bahman Mohasses thought himself to be a significant part of the history of Iran, but then his country’s history swallowed him whole, and no one has heard of him since. Fifi Howls From Happiness captures the lat two months of the legendary Iranian artist in his hotel room in Rome and follows the creative process of his last work: the “Unknown Masterpiece”

Fringe! are proud to present the first screening of ‘Fifi…’ in a specifically queer context here in the UK – it’s a moving, inspiring, endearingly quirky and at times surprisingly funny portrait of an openly gay artist who wrestles his creative demons and internal judgements of his sexuality in order to create his final masterpiece. Fifi… easily transcends it’s expected niche by engaging with the more universal themes of creativity, identity, ego and posterity whilst never losing it’s focus on Mohassess and his fascinating journey.

Curated by East London based writer/director and film programmer Kanchi Wichmann who’s debut feature film Break My Fall was released in 2011.

An open discussion of Clayton Pettet’s much- anticipated performance Art School Stole My Virginity (during which the artist will lose his virginity before a live audience in a West London gallery space). Pettet situates his performance as an  investigation into the cultural significance of virginity and sexuality. In ‘A Performance of the   People’: Discussing Art School Stole My Virginity, art historians Dorothy Fisher and Vincent Marquis will collaborate with Pettet to discuss both Art  School Stole My Virginity and the attention around it. Fisher, Marquis and Pettet are interested in examining the relationship between Pettet’s work and the themes of gender, sexuality, art education, and the  reception of contemporary art.
