12 MIDNIGHTTwo sisters who become nude art models are drawn into New York’s darker world of prostitution and degradation, where “If you didn’t go to the limit, you were considered a square!” Long considered lost, The Orgy at Lil’s Place is an important missing link in the history of sexploitation films. This high-grossing early “roughie” helped set the tone for violent cautionary tales about the 1960s sexual revolution taking place both on- and off-screen. This recently rediscovered 35mm print appears courtesy of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction. (35mm presentation)
The screening will be introduced by eminent sexploitation cinema lecturer Dr. Eric Schaefer (author of Bold! Daring! Shocking! True!: A History of Exploitation Films, 1919-1959)
