Funeral Parade of Roses 薔薇の葬列

July 8-14
The Cinematheque
1131 Howe Street

The Cinematheque presents a brand new restoration of the debut feature from Japanese avant-gardist Toshio Matsumoto, who died in April this year. Matsumoto's delirious masterpiece of queer cinema is set in Tokyo’s gay and drag-queen subculture, and was originally released in 1969. Acknowledged by Stanley Kubrick as an unmistakable inspiration for A Clockwork Orange, The Cinematheque will also be screening special double-bills of both films!
