‘Flaming Creatures’ at 50

The most influential and incendiary avant-garde film ever made in America, Jack Smith’s Flaming Creatures had its first public screening a half-century ago at the Bleecker Street Cinema in New York. Anthology Film Archives is marking the occasion by recreating the original bill, showing Flaming Creatures with its soul mate Blonde Cobra, a portrait of Smith made by Ken Jacobs from the shards of an abandoned project. The evening may include surviving participants and more.

Tickets are available at the box office on the day of the show.
