Every Friday Night in July! Bring a blanket and gather in the amphitheater near Wangechi Mutu’s sculpture Water Woman to watch a selection of films about powerful women and girls living near and under the water. Pack a picnic to enjoy with friends and explore the park at sunset.
In this genre-defying horror-musical mash-up, a pair of carnivorous mermaid sisters are drawn ashore in an alternate eighties Poland to explore the wonders and temptations of life on land. A coming-of-age fairy tale with a catchy new wave soundtrack, lavishly grimy sets, and outrageous musical numbers, The Lure explores its themes of sexuality, exploitation, and adulthood with energy and originality.
Directed by Agnieszka Smoczynska, 2015, 91 min., NR.
