6/9, 7PM - Dyke Delicious Presents: The Girl King

Directed by: Mika Kaurismåki

 

Dyke Delicious wraps up its 15th season and honors Pride month with celebrated Finnish director Mika Kaurismåki's The Girl King. Thank goodness the true story about 17th century Queen Christina of Sweden (Malin Buska) can now be told without innuendo, a concession necessary for the 1933 film starring Greta Garbo. Queen Christina was a swashbuckling androgynous lesbian who was out and proud, much to the dismay of her court of male advisors and theologians. It is love at first sight when Christina meets Countess Ebba Sparre, the fiancée of one of her noblemen, and the chemistry between the two women is palpable. (2015, 106 min, Finland/Germany/Canada/Sweden/France, Digital Projection)
