Free Screening: The Danish Girl

Copenhagen, 1926. Danish artist, Gerda Wegener (Oscar Winner Alicia Vikander), painted her own husband, Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne), as a lady in her painting. When the painting gained popularity, Einar started to change his appearance into a female appearance and named himself Lili Elbe. With his feminism passion and Gerda’s support, Einar – or Elbe – attempted one of the first male-to-female sex reassignment surgery, a decision that turned into a massive change for their marriage, that Gerda realized her own husband is no longer a man or the person she married before. A childhood friend of Einar, art-dealer Hans Axgil (Matthias Schoenaerts), shows up and starts a complex love triangle with the couple.

Film Screening: Sixth and Main (1977) Leslie Nielsen

Sixth and Main  is the Los Angeles street corner where on any given day you might find itinerant local “character” John Doe (Leslie Nielsen). Elegant authoress Monica (Beverly Garland) discovers that the supposedly derelict Doe has in his possession several manuscripts, all brilliantly written. John Doe had once been a high-priced screenwriter, but dropped out when he got sick of playing the Hollywood game. When Monica announces that she wants to “rediscover” him, he fakes his own death and disappears. This independently produced Serio comedy is buoyed by character vignettes from a variety of “underbelly” LA types, ranging from bitter junkies to philosophical quadriplegics.. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
