Kamikaze Hearts

Tue, Jul 19
7:00 pm Q&A

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

Tue, Jul 19 @ 7:00 pm: Director Juliet Bashore and actress Jennifer Blowdryer will be in person for Q&A and Sharon Mitchell will join via Zoom, moderated by producer Heather Buckley

Director: Juliet Bashore Run Time: 77 min. Format: DCP Rating: NR Release Year: 1986

Starring: Sharon Mitchell, Tigr

Alternately distressing, instructive, contestable and fascinating, Juliet Bashore’s quasi-documentary plunge into the 1980s porn industry takes an unsparing look at issues of misogyny, drug abuse, and exploitation via the story of two women–the na├»ve newcomer Tigr and her partner, the magnetic, imperious porn veteran Sharon Mitchell–caught in a toxic romance.

By turns mesmerizing and unsettling, Kamikaze Hearts is both a fascinating record of pre-gentrification San Francisco’s X-rated underground and an intense, searing love story. The film offers a disturbing glimpse of the modification of bodies, feelings, and lives.
