Spring Movie Night
June 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Join us for Strictly Brohibited at the South Street Farm: a screening series of cool movies directed by non-male filmmakers. These outdoor events are free and open to the public!
Our first film celebrates Pride, with the lesbian spy parody DEBS (2004), written and directed by Angela Robinson. Set in a world where a secret test hidden inside the SAT recruits attractive teen girls to become government agents, the story follows Amy (Sara Foster), a “model spy” who gets kidnapped by notorious, flirty supercriminal Lucy Diamond (Jordana Brewster). Amy’s DEBS team (Meagan Good, Devon Aoki, and Jill Ritchie) sets out to rescue her, but they soon realize she might not be such an unwilling hostage after all. This movie is equal parts silly and sweet, and we know you’ll love its killer soundtrack, fantastic supporting cast (Holland Taylor! Jimmi Simpson! Michael Clark Duncan!), positive queer message, and classic early-00s fashion. Runtime: 92 minutes.
When: Seating opens at 7:30pm, movie starts at 8pm
Cost: Free admission. Donations to support Groundwork Somerville’s programs are welcome!
RSVP: As space is limited, we ask that you confirm your attendance on our Facebook event page if you are able.
COVID protocol: Masks are optional, but encouraged when in close proximity to others. We trust you will not attend if you have any symptoms or recent close contacts.
Strictly Brohibited is a Boston-area screening series and discussion group celebrating the work of non-cis-male filmmakers. We aim to foster a welcoming community for women, nonbinary, genderqueer, and trans movie lovers to talk freely without being interrupted by Film Bros. We hold regular virtual and in-person screenings, organized through a private Facebook group and Instagram.
