LIVE MUSIC PERFORMANCE by Sleepy Doug Shaw.
PUZZLE OF A DOWNFALL CHILD by Jerry Schatzberg. 1970. 105 min.
In fractured flash-backs and spiraling montages, a fashion model—played by a mesmerizing Faye Dunaway—unravels in a remote beach house. This semi-biographical melodrama from acclaimed photographer-filmmaker and NYC legend Jerry Schatzberg is a coiling indictment of society’s mistreatment of women.
Post-screening Q&A with Jerry Schatzberg.
