LA premieres of 16mm restorations from the Academy Film Archive!

McDowell’s short feature Taboo (The Single & The LP) is easily one of his most complex and fascinatingly ambitious films, as it interweaves several narrative and conceptual threads, which include board games, erotic obsessions, and an extended rumination on (and dramatization of!) some mysterious bathroom graffiti. Long thought lost, this singular, memorable film will be preceded by McDowell’s hilarious and unexpectedly tender home movie excursion A Visit to Indiana, and the surrealist and romantic fantasia True Blue & Dreamy.

Note: This program contains explicit content, including some autopsy footage.

Kathleen Trailer (alternate take) (1972) 1.5m
A Visit to Indiana (1970) 10.5m
True Blue & Dreamy (1974) 12.5m
Taboo (The Single and the LP) (1981) 53m
total = 77.5m
