Introduced by Gary Kramer

Photographer James Bidgood shot Pink Narcissus on 8mm in his small New York apartment over the course of seven years, though upon its initial release the director was uncredited. The film is awash in vivid colors as the main character imagines himself in a series of erotically charged fantasies that draw on mythological themes and surrealistic tableaux. Pink Narcissus is an enduring classic of early Queer cinema.

Preceded by:

dir. Tom Chomont, US, 1967, 16mm, 3 min.

dir. Tom Chomont, US 1969, 16mm, 6 min.
