Special Screening of "The Battle of Pussy Willow Creek"
Barika Taheer Edwards and WBAI's Artsy Fartsy Show present a special special screening of the mockumentary "The Battle of Pussy Willow Creek" by director Wendy Jo Cohen at the Quad Cinema (34 W 13th St) Saturday, April 6th at 11am.
There will be a talkback session following the film with Wendy Jo Cohen and Barika Taheer Edwards.
About "The Battle of Pussy Willow Creek": Ken Burns meets Spinal Tap in a subversive tour de force relaying the outrageous life stories of four forgotten Civil War heroes: an opium-addicted gay colonel, an aging Chinese launderer, a nerdy escaped slave, and a one- armed teenage prostitute.
Both wickedly satirical and deeply affectionate, The Battle of Pussy Willow Creek tells the “100% true” story of how these oddball outsiders saved the Union from an nefarious foreign plot, only to have their stunning victory stricken from the history books.
Tickets are $12 and can be purchased through the give2wbai.org site HERE.
All proceeds go to the WBAI Emergency Transmitter Fund.
