      Sinematek presents - BARBARELLA

      “An angel doesn’t make love. An Angel is love.” - Pygar Sinematek rings in the new year with a cinematic slice of psychedelia straight from 1968 with BARBARELLA. Jane Fonda became Hollywood royalty after a string of successful films in the 1970s, but it was the sexy sci-fi spoof Barbarella which proved to be her most most enduring legacy. Fonda stars as Barbarella, a busty vixen who is assigned a mission from the President of Earth to capture a mad scientist named Durand Durand who has invented the deadly Positronic Ray. Encountering blind angels, vampire dolls, evil lesbians, and a killer flock of budgerigars; Barbarella sets forth on an interplanetary mission with her best weapon - her sexuality - as her ultimate resource. Based on a comic strip by Jean-Claude Forest, and directed by Fonda’s then-husband Roger Vadim, BARBERELLA remains a phenomenon for it’s swinging 60s ideologies and sparkly mod outfits. This camp classic will provide the dreamiest sensory holiday from all your summer debauchery. “A stoned fusion of late ’60s Playboy and Star Trek.” - The Age Running time: 98 mins
