SPECIAL VALENTINE’S DAY EDITION
“Love is the blackest of all plagues…if one could die of it, there would be some pleasure in love, but you don’t die of it.” Jöns, Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal
On February 15th, the PhilaMOCA’s quarterly screening series is back with our first themed program in honor of St. Valentine’s Day! Bring your sweetie and cuddle up with seven twisted tales dealing with the darker side of love and devotion, starting with one of the most charming shorts we’ve come across and ending with one of the most confrontational. As usual, all of the films in this program are screening in Philadelphia for the first time, including an exclusive U.S. Sneak Preview of Meredith Hama-Brown’s devastating short, Nature. In addition, we’ll also be presenting a special screening of Todd Rohal’s previously released Rat Pack Rat in tribute to the film’s lead actor (and Philadelphia native), Eddie Rouse, who sadly passed away in December 2014.
