33 Tickets: 213.480.7065 or www. outfest. org Platinum is proud to present the West Coast premiere of THE SORROWS OF DOLORES by the late New York playwright and actor, Charles Ludlam. Ludlam was the visionary behind the notorious Ridiculous Theatrical Company from 1967- 1987. From his midnight camp extravaganzas Big Hotel and Turds in Hell to his celebrated gothic horror play The Mysteries of Irma Vep, Ludlam's densely- layered queer satires embraced the ridiculousness of high culture and the seriousness of the low with drag pastiche and literary verve. THE SORROWS OF DOLORES is one of two 16mm films Ludlam shot in the late 1970s and was left unfinished at the time of his death from AIDS in 1987. Until the recent digital re- mastering and the addition of a new score by original composer Peter Golub, it had not been seen in over 20 years. THE SORROWS OF DOLORES recounts the madcap tale of sweet Dolores who, after being tortured by her sadistic mother, is thrown into the harsh city environs, innocent and alone. Chased by villains, abducted into white slavery, and ravaged by monstrous beasts, Dolores spirals deep into the underworld unable to find redemption. SORROWS is inspired by silent serials, melodramas, and monster films of the early 20th century and stars Ludlam's longtime lover Everett Quinton in the role of Dolores as well as Ridiculous luminaries such as Black- Eyed Susan, Lola Pashalinski, Minette, and John D. Brockmeyer. In turns comic, horrific, and incredibly tender, it is a treasure from the archive you won't want to miss. POST- SCREENING RECEPTION: REDCAT Lobby SUNDAY | July 11 | 5: 00pm | REDCAT With an Introduction by Peter Golub, Composer- in- Residence, Ridiculous Theatrical Company ( 1980- 1989) and Adam Baran, Queer/ Art/ Film Presented in partnership with Queer/ Art/ Film, New York The Sorrows of Dolores was digitally re- mastered by Queer/ Art/ Film, the monthly art and film series held in New York City. The original 16mm film print and new digital masters are now archived with the Legacy Project at the UCLA Film & Television Archive. A special thank you to Everett Quinton, Peter Golub, Ira Sachs, and Adam Baran for making this screening possible.
