Part of the program

Tally Brown tells tales, sings songs, and commands the screen for documentary filmmaker von Praunheim (whose Survival in New York is also showing in this series). The classically trained Brown’s musical repertoire encompassed opera, rock, and much more. Her film collaborations with Andy Warhol and Taylor Mead are discussed, and friends Holly Woodlawn and Divine weigh in on a thrilling performer equally at home on Broadway and at gay bathhouses.
