CineKink joins forces with Cinema Purgatorio to present a special screening of the new documentary from CineKink alumnus director, Pola Rappaport ("Writer of O"/CineKink 2005)...
"Hair: Let the Sun Shine In"
(Directed by Pola Rappaport and Wolfgang Held, 2008, USA, 56 minutes.) Since its overwhelming success on Broadway forty years ago, the musical "Hair" has inspired generations with its messages of love, non-violence and liberation. This new, definitive, and entertaining documentary highlights the continuing relevance of the show and its still radical, transformative power.
In preparation for the musical's fortieth anniversary, the show's author and co-creator Jim Rado rehearses a troupe of young performers for a new production whose vibrant energy brings a fantastic score to life once again. A wealth of archival footage covers US and international productions as well as conveys a portrait of an era, a generation and its politics.
Sunday, March 29th - 4:30 pm
85 E. Fourth Street (@ Second Avenue), NYC
