SCREENING

The Addiction

Saturday, Feb 26 at 6:00 PM

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Abel Ferrara. 1995, 82 mins. DCP. With Lili Taylor, Christopher Walken, Edie Falco, Fredro Starr, Jamel Simmons. Iconoclastic indie filmmaker Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant) reinvented the vampire film in this nineties genre essential. After being attacked and bitten one night by a strange woman, philosophy major Kathleen (Taylor) develops a bloodlust and slowly descends into depravity. Capturing the raw energy of New York City streets through beautiful black-and-white images, Ferrara offers a singular blend of gory pleasure and cerebral provocation.
