Calgary Underground Film Festival Presents
Mary Jane's Not a Virgin Anymore (Off the CUFF)
617 8 Ave SW
Calgary, AB, T2P 1H1
$8.00 - $10.00
Celebrate Valentine's Day CUFF-style, with an Off the CUFF screening of MARY JANE'S NOT A VIRGIN ANYMORE (1998). See a brand new 2K preservation of Sarah Jacobson's punk-spirited DIY film, preceded by her short I WAS A TEENAGE SERIAL KILLER (1993).
These cinematic beacons combine B-movie aesthetics and riot grrrl feminism! Inspired by underground cinema, record labels and 'zine culture, Sarah Jacobson was a one-woman ‘90s DIY powerhouse. In her short life, Sarah found fans amongst other female culture-shifting titans Allison Anders, Tamra Davis, and Kim Gordon.
Jacobson's only feature film, MARY JANE'S NOT A VIRGIN ANYMORE (1998), is a vibrant and vital antidote to every phony Hollywood teen picture. It brings lo-fi realness to the coming-of-age genre, and it mostly takes place in a repertory movie theater. First job, first time, crushes, friendships, fitting in and figuring it out -- all are handled with utter honesty.
