Tickets just $3! Introduction by Professor Cáel M. Keegan. Keegan's research focuses on the analysis of transgender cultural production–its sensorial aesthetics, politics, and histories. Keegan’s book, Lana and Lilly Wachowski: Sensing Transgender (University of Illinois Press) stages the first academic analysis of the Wachowski sisters as the world’s most influential transgender media producers. About the film: Sparks fly when Violet (Jennifer Tilly) sets eyes on Corky (Gina Gershon) in an elevator. Violet is the girlfriend of a violent gangster, Caesar (Joe Pantoliano), while Corky is fresh out of prison and doing renovations on the apartment next door. As the two women launch into a passionate love affair, they assemble an intricate plan for Violet to escape from Caesar — with two million dollars of the mob's money. Directed by Lana and Lilly Wachowski.
