Description

Expected to be in attendance: Director Jeffrey McHale and Producer Ariana Garfinkel

When SHOWGIRLS was released in 1995, Paul Verhoeven's salacious NC-17 look at Vegas dancers was met by critics and audiences alike with near universal derision. But in the intervening decades, the film has inspired an ever-growing fan community and impassioned debate over its quality, artistic intent, and messages about sex and gender. Guided by a chorus of film critics, scholars, and fervent devotees, YOU DON'T NOMI explores the legacy and broader implications of SHOWGIRLS, while diving into its cultural inspirations and place in Verhoeven's filmography.

Screening Supported by:
Boston Underground Film Festival
