Thursday, September 3, 2015 in Amsterdam…

A monthly evening at Oostblok for the non-discriminating film aficionado. Bullshit Night Cinema is dedicated to the forgotten motion picture, be it eclectic, foreign, a cult classic, or even a really shitty movie.

For this edition we have our good friend G.T. Thomas–musician, composer and hairstylist–presenting an under-appreciated classic starring comedian Jerry Lewis…

FUNNY BONES
A surreal, dark comedy concerning family and the tragedy of talent. “Struggling in the shadow of his famous comedian father (world-renowned entertainer Jerry Lewis), a young comic (Oliver Platt) retreats to his old hometown when his act bombs in Las Vegas. Ready to try anything for inspiration, he’s in for more than a few surprises before learning that his own eccentric family is the best material for a perfect act!”

Dinner and snacks will be provided by India Roti Room. Hangout with us after the film for some banging-ass tunes courtesy of ABSNFC.

All this action for €3. 

The first Bullshit Night Cinema happened in a lovely fashion. Thanks to everyone who came out to see Howard the Duck, and a special thanks to the good folks at Oostblok for facilitating us.

The ethos of the evening is easy… We give accolades to under-appreciated films. We show flicks you won’t see anywhere else on the big screen, tie that in with a presentation from a fan, and an exclusive piece of art inspired by the film. For this month we got the homie Dennis de Groot’s rendition of our homeduck Howard.

Till the next one in September!!!

Freie Deutsche Jugend

De Freie Deutsche Jugend speelde in de vroegere DDR een belangrijke rol in het leven van alledag. Tot je 25ste was je verplicht lid te zijn. Er was wel altijd leiding aanwezig om een oogje in het zeil te houden en in te grijpen wanneer het nodig was.

Dat ingrijpen ging soms met lijfstraf. Je werd dan gewoon over de knie gelegd en kreeg een pak op je billen of er werd met een rotting op je billen geslagen.
