The video’s science fiction narrative explores the power of the Divine Feminine through collaborations with JD Samson, visual artist Jennifer Meridian, and the band TEEN.  Out There references the original power of MTV and builds on the long legacy of concept albums like Ziggy Stardust and Deltron 3030. Gideon and O’Neill perform the music alongside the projection of the video.

Doors open at 8 / Film Starts promptly at 9 / Tunes by DJ Black Daria before and after the film.

SALOME: The passion project of Russian-born actress and producer Alla Nazimova, this outrageously stylized adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s notorious play—based on the biblical story of the teenage princess who lusts after the severed head of John the Baptist—is a delirious, decadent avant-garde spectacle. Its status as a queer classic rests both on its Art Nouveau-meets-camp style and on the legend that the bisexual Nazimova cast the film entirely with gay actors. America's first art film!
