Cindy Sherman as Director: Office Killer

Thursday, July 6 at 8 pm

Doors 7:30; $5 suggested donation.

In the late 90’s, American photographer, Cindy Sherman made her directorial debut with the campy, feminist feature, Office Killer. Although not a hit with major audiences, the film is a great reflection of a time where technology was beginning to enter the workplace. Rich with symbolism and great performances by Carol Kane and Molly Ringwald, Office Killer is a treat for anyone familiar with Sherman’s work.

Introducing the film will be Dahlia Schweitzer, author of “Cindy Sherman’s Office Killer: Another Kind of Monster,” who has previously introduced Office Killer alongside Cindy Sherman herself!
Book available for sale online and at the screening.

Screened on VHS.
