Part of Fashion in Film Festival: If Looks Could Kill
Friday, May 11, 2012, 7:00 p.m.

Dir. Abel Ferrara. 1981, 80 mins. With Zoë Lund. In Abel Ferrara’s violent retribution drama, a shy, dowdy seamstress is brutally raped twice in the same day and transformed into a killer, shooting men with her .45 pistol. The transformation of the heroine is marked by the change of her style and dress, to a sleek catlike vamp who wears bright red lipstick and killer boots.

Tickets for Friday evening screenings: $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students) and includes admission to the Museum's galleries, which are open until 8:00 p.m.
