The screen’s incomparable femme fatale is the subject of tonight’s program:

The Dream Screen (1986) by Stephanie Beroes — Three layers of story are interwoven (scenes of a modern Lulu, sections of Pandora’s Box, and an interview with a young Brooks look-alike) to explore several larger questions: “what is the problematic of Lulu, what is the myth of Pandora, the myth of the femme fatale, the image of woman in relation to men, in relation to her self?” (S.B.)

Diary Of A Lost Girl (1929) by G.W. Pabst, 100min. This second Brooks-Pabst collaboration (following Pandora’s Box) remained unreleased in the U.S. for over fifty years, and concerns the corruption of a young girl who is condemned by society for her sexuality.
