Women Are Sinners

In 1977, a horror film opened up and captivated audiences with a scene about a young woman’s menstruation (horror flick, indeed!). The titular Carrie, distressed in the girl’s locker room at high school, had no clue why blood was gushing from her nether regions. Once the girl got home, Carrie’s mother became livid upon hearing that her daughter received her period: It was punishment from God for sinning. Carrie's mother then locked her up in the closet and forced her to pray. Well, Carrie eventually snapped. And this blossoming woman had telekinetic powers.

Carrie is being shown this Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Cinema Paradiso (503 SE Sixth St., Fort Lauderdale). It marks the beginning of a five-part series honoring Mario Tosi, a talented cinematographer who's worked on more than 23 films. After the film, Tosi will lead a Q&A, as he'll do the next four consecutive Tuesdays after the airing of films Macarthur, The Betsy, The Main Event, and The Stunt Man, respectively. On October 11, Tosi will receive The Lifetime Achievement Award at the 24th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. Each Tuesday costs 5 bucks; free for FLIFF members.
