VenusInFurInternational Film Movement: Venus in Fur Tuesday, June 2 @ 4:00 pm. Free refreshments served.

Alone in a Paris theater after a long day of auditioning actresses for his new play, writer-director Thomas is distraught that no one has what it takes to play the lead female character: a woman who enters into an agreement with her male counterpart to dominate him as her slave. Enter pushy, foul-mouthed, desperate and ill-prepared actress Vanda who is a whirlwind of erratic - and, it turns out, erotic - energy. When Thomas reluctantly agrees to let her try out for the part, he is stunned and captivated by her transformation: not only is Vanda a perfect fit, but she apparently has researched the role exhaustively, learned her lines by heart and even bought her own props. The likeness proves to be much more than skin-deep, and as the extended "audition" builds momentum, Thomas moves from attraction to obsession until the balance of power between director and actress shifts completely.
