When Night is Falling

Series: Queer Commons Film Festival

Wednesday, March 2 at 7:30pm  |  $9  |

Camille (Pascale Bussières) is a mythology lecturer at a conservative Christian college. She's engaged to be married and is on the path to a stable career. But, when her dog dies, Camille finds her life unraveling. At a low ebb, she crosses paths with fiery circus performer Petra (Rachael Crawford) in a laundromat, and sparks fly. With Petra pursuing her ardently, Camille experiences a sexual awakening and must confront the daunting prospect of changing her entire existence. Written and Directed by Patricia Rozema (MANSFIELD PARK, I’VE HEARD THE MERMAIDS SINGING)

This is a movie you’ll either love to hate or hate to love. As stated on AfterEllen “WHEN NIGHT IS FALLING is one of the worst movies I have ever loved with a full-hearted, unconstrained passion.” Join us and see where you fall!

QUEER COMMONS is a new, monthly film series created with the goal of bringing a little more queer content to the big screen. Old and new, serious and cheesy, the films in this series will have three things in common; queer content, they’re not on Netflix* and nobody dies**.

*There might be a little wiggle room on this one.

**Ok, the main characters don’t die, I can’t promise about anyone else.
