"Queen of Diamonds" at Lightbox Film Center

Date/Time

Jun 29, 2019
07:00 PM until 08:30 PM

Description

Critically acclaimed for her radical feminist body of work, Nina Menkes’ Queen of Diamonds (Sundance ’91) follows the alienated life of Firdaus (Tinka Menkes), a Blackjack dealer in a Las Vegas landscape juxtaposed between glittering casino lights and the deteriorating desert oasis. Negotiating a missing husband and neighboring domestic violence, Firdaus’ world unfolds as a fragmented but hypnotic interplay between repetition and repressed anger. Heralded as one of the most challenging and subversive filmmakers working today, the re-release of Queen of Diamonds in a new 4K restoration marks the start of a new critical recognition for Menkes’ groundbreaking body of work.
