Anna Biller, director of THE LOVE WITCH, presents this special screening of the 1933 film by Michael Curtiz (CASABLANCA). In this pre-code film, Ruth Chatterton plays a female CEO of a car company who calls all the shots in both the boardroom and in the bedroom. On the film, Biller states, “I’ve never seen anything like it, and it’s definitely forward-thinking and feminist in a way that I think will surprise modern viewers.”

Preceded by: THREE EXAMPLES OF MYSELF AS QUEEN (d. Anna Biller. USA. 1994) & A VISIT FROM THE INCUBUS (d. Anna Biller. USA. 2001)

Presented as part of the Contrast Film Festival, highlighting boundary-pushing, genre-defying, and forward-thinking art with an emphasis on female & queer creators. More information about the festival HERE
