Post-film discussion with Amos Mac! Digital projection

In this late 70s masterpiece of teen angst, out-of-touch parents set off a chain of events that inspire their children to commit an astonishing act of rebellion. Kaplan’s realist drama was so controversial that distributor Orion Pictures shelved the film for two years. For our guest presenter Amos Mac, publisher of the groundbreaking trans zine Original Plumbing, the film is a bittersweet reminder of “the cruel joke of my adolescence.” You won’t want to miss this provocative cult classic featuring a 15-year-old, midriff-baring wearing Matt Dillon in his first film role.
