THE LANDLORD
1970. 112 min. Directed by Hal Ashby.
When wealthy Elgar Enders (Beau Bridges) decides to buy a run-down building in Brooklyn, his plan is to evict the black tenants and build himself a luxury home. But Elgar quickly realizes he can use his purchase to rebel against his racist parents and begins clumsily trying to befriend his new tenants (including the amazing Diana Sands & Marki Bey). Can Elgar really bridge the racial divide? Or will this gentrifier get his comeuppance? Hal Ashby’s brilliantly subversive satire of privilege, gentrification, and racial perceptions is a favorite of drag empress Flotilla DeBarge, who calls it a “heartfelt and hilarious film” that resonates even more today.

FLOTILLA DEBARGE on THE LANDLORD
“This 1970 comedy/drama dealing with status, interracial relationships and racial perceptions is a heartfelt and hilarious film, with a great cast led by Beau Bridges, Lee Grant and Pearl Bailey who are brilliant. But it is the performances by Diana Sands and Marki Bey that made this film a special one for me.  Hal Ashby’s next film would be the 1971 HAROLD AND MAUDE, but for me THE LANDLORD is one of his unsung classics.”

Flotilla DeBarge has long been a popular figure within the New York City nightlife scene. She has been cast in several films such as To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything! Julie NewmarMarci X, and the miniseries version of Angels in America. Flotilla appeared on Broadway in The Threepenny Opera as well as performing an Off-Broadway one-woman show, The Flotilla DeBarge Minstrel Show.

Winter can be a real drag. The weather. The flu. The lack of sunlight. It’s enough to bum you out big time, henny! But this winter at Queer|Art|Film, we’re flipping the script by inviting four of our favorite drag queens to present and discuss films that have inspired their craft in post-screening kikis. Curated by Queer|Art|Film’s Adam Baran and Brooklyn drag diva Lady Quesadilla, this sequel to our 2014 Summer of Drag season will feature four films guaranteed to make you gag, darling. Tease out your wigs, beat your faces, and prepare to laugh. Winter can’t come soon enough!
