EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK!
On March 24, the Seattle Erotica Cinema Society is proud to share out newest addition to our vintage 16mm archive, Sugar in the Raw. For the first three months of the year, the Sprocket Society has their 16mm equipment at the Grand Illusion Cinema, giving us the opportunity to share the rarities that we occasionally stumble upon on film.
Last year, we exhibited Flip Chicks (1973) with Georgina Spelvin with a couple of short “beaver films” from the late 1960s. It was so much fun being able to recreate a modern version of the grindhouse experience by showing old, faded 16mm films that likely played in the small porno theaters in the 1970s. So we’re excited to have found another relic of the 1970s, although this time this is a rare adult film that was written and directed by a porn actress, Lil Anders.
March 24, 7pm – SUGAR IN THE RAW – Grand Illusion Cinema
SUGAR IN THE RAW
Lil Anders / 1978, USA
56 min / 16mm
Sugar (Cindy Lynn) is hired by the mob to track down a man and make him pay in this rare Golden Age porno. Written and directed by adult film actress Lil Anders, this low budget hardcore thriller provides a feminine touch. Still following the expected tropes of the single-reel low rent porno, Sugar in the Raw distinguishes itself with a tenderness toward the protagonist giving Sugar a touch of depth and even an surprise romance. In the end, Sugar must decide if her loyalties fall with the criminal syndicate that hired her or her target, a youthful Mike Ranger, who she has developed feelings for.
