February 10: The Party in Taylor Mead’s Kitchen

(2011) directed by Jeffrey Wengrofsky

7 PM

Taylor Mead personified Beatnik in Ron Rice’s classic The Flower Thief in 1960 and has since appeared in scores of films. Fifty-one years later, The Party in Taylor Mead’s Kitchen finds Taylor still living the life of the bohemian, devoted to poetry, painting, partying, acting, homo-eroticism, gossip, and indifference to bourgeois notions of hygiene. The Party in Taylor Mead’s Kitchen offers, in stark and humorous relief, the contrasting romantic beauty and squalid dereliction of la vie boheme.
