Join us for an evening of steamy nostalgia as we screen a gay porn classic in 4k remaster; Fred Halsted's LA PLAYS ITSELF. The groundbreaking film is noted for its unflinching framing of gay S&M practices, which at the time were far removed from the public imaginary (and even the larger gay community).

Shot with an underground art aesthetic of dramatic shadows and non-synchronous sound, Fred Halsted’s LA Plays Itself, about two sexual drifters, captured the raw underbelly of 1970s LA as few films ever have. 

The film is 55-minutes followed by a 30-minute Q&A hosted by Sam Te Kani.
