Girls Behaving Badly“It was stifling there,” explains a teenager who has just run away from home. This program presents two films about young women who turn their backs on social rules and forge their own paths. Preceeding Daisies will be Chantal Akerman’s 1984 short, J’ai faim, j’ai froid, about two teens who run off toward Paris, stealing food and refusing the idea of employment. Their journey, however, repeatedly leaves them hungry.
Then, Vera Chytilová’s 1966 feature film, Daisies, follows the irreverent shenanigans of two young women named Marie. Like the teens in Akerman’s short, both Maries possess an insatiable appetite, and they have a knack for destruction. Contains mature content. (35mm and digital presentation)
