December 15 | 7:30 pm | Billy Wilder Theater

A decrepit bordello in a small town is the site for an exploration of social boundaries and sexual stereotypes. The bordello is “the place without limits” where a local tough-guy, Pancho, interacts with a transvestite Spanish dancer, La Manuela. When La Manuela finds Pancho harassing her daughter, La Japonesita, the product of his one heterosexual liaison, she taunts him with a provocative dance and embrace. La Manuela’s teasing both enrages and arouses Pancho. The film is an adaptation of a novel of the same name written by Chilean writer José Donoso. While indicting homophobia, it implies that macho culture, as represented by Pancho, is founded on latent homoeroticism. Webber, Ian McKellen, Mick Jagger.
