A one-night-only event featuring a rare screening of Dottie Gets Spanked, a conversation with Todd Haynes, and a special surprise.
Dottie Gets Spanked
Todd Haynes, USA, 1993, 16mm, 30m
Haynes once again reflected on the dark side of a supposedly wholesome pop-culture phenomenon in this rueful period short—originally shown on PBS—about a suburban 6-year-old boy marked as a pariah for his obsession with a sitcom star. The dream that occurs to him after he sees his idol in a degrading, sexualized position is one of Haynes’s great hysterical outbursts—especially since it comes midway through one of his quieter, sadder, and more somber films.
A special (and secret) surprise film!
