VAMPYROS LESBOS

Presented by Austin Film Society at AFS Cinema, Austin TX

Oct 22 - 24 2022
VAMPYROS LESBOS

Archivist and historian Elizabeth Purchell explores the history of queer cinema and its many groundbreaking pioneers in this refreshing behind-the-scenes look at the evolution of queer representation on screen.

A mysterious countess seeks more than blood from her visitors in Jesús Franco’s surrealist lesbian vampire classic. The most well-known of Franco’s more than 200 films and perhaps the greatest showcase for his early muse, Soledad Miranda, VAMPYROS LESBOS also features an equally iconic psychedelic lounge score that became an unlikely chart hit in the 90s. Paired with Curtis Harrington’s 1956 portrait of artist and occultist Marjorie Cameron, THE WORMWOOD STAR.
