Funeral Parade of Roses

Dir. Toshio Matsumoto
With Pîtâ, Osamu Ogasawara, Yoshimi Jô
1969, 105min, DCP


This psychotropic, pop art wonder from Japan’s 1960s counterculture zigzags breathlessly between melodrama, documentary, and dazzling New Wave stylistic experimentation as it circles around the lives, loves, and rivalries of a coterie of queer and transgender performers working at a Tokyo gay bar. Boasting a bravura turn from Warholian superstar Peter, the recently restored Funeral Parade of Roses is a lost-and-found landmark of LGBT cinema.

The Crying Game

Dir. Neil Jordan
With Stephen Rea, Jaye Davidson, Forest Whitaker
1992, 112min, 35mm


One of the most talked-about films of the 1990s was also one of the first—for better or worse—to introduce transgender representation to mainstream cinema. Set against the backdrop of the Irish Troubles, Neil Jordan’s maze-like Oscar winner roots around thorny issues of race, desire, and politics as an IRA foot soldier becomes embroiled in an affair with the lover of a British army hostage.

Funeral Parade of Roses
Funeral Parade of Roses + The Crying Game
