Little Miss Potentiality Returns
Please join me for a screening of
my movie, Toxic Energy Little Miss Potentiality Returns, at the
Parkway Speakeasy Theater in Oakland on Tuesday, March 6th
at 9:15 pm. Tickets are $3.00.
Because the Parkway Theater is also
a tavern, you must be 21 or older to attend the screening. Kids:
This gives you just over 2 weeks to get those fake IDs in order,
so that you can come and enjoy the show.
That said, do come early and enjoy
the fabulous food and drink at the Parkway.
A description of the movie:
Thalia Drori presents the Bay Area premiere of her dark comedy,
Toxic Energy Little Miss Potentiality Returns. Shot on 16mm black
and white in the style of the silent film era, complete with
intertitles, this feature-length film has Wynegar Doushay
reprising her role as Little Miss Potentiality, a modern day
Buster Keaton. First introduced in Droriís 1996 short film,
Little Miss Potentiality, the pale, dead-pan heroine always wears
her trademark triangle dress reminiscent of the "woman" symbol on
the doors of restrooms.
Droriís latest film, Little Miss Potentiality returns to answer
the question: why is the mayor of Richmond developing an LSD like
drug that makes people dance naked? She enrolls in detective
school and joins forces with a massage parlor co-worker and a
lobotomized reporter. Together they race to uncover the devious
mayorís plot to stay in power while a toxic cloud threatens to
engulf the city.
features a musical score by Roddy Bottum and the voices of KPFA
radio personalities Kris Welch and Phillip Maldari.
