November 16 Movie Night Showing ZsaZsa Zaturnah Ze Moveeh

Zsazsa ZaturnnahThe first movie for our Kritika discussion series is ZsaZsa Zaturnah Ze Moveeh (2006) and you are invited!

Time: Friday, November 16. 7:00 pm

Location: Tei’s place in the West End. 605 – 1872 Nelson Street, buzz 605.

Extra: Bring a baon (snacks) to eat and share. And since it’s a Friday, feel free to bring your date/partner!

Zaturnnah, a powerful and voluptuous female with large red hair and a muscular physique, is reminiscent of the DC Comics character Wonder Woman and the classic Filipino superhero Darna. The distinct difference is the sexuality of her alter ego Ada, who is an effeminate homosexual male. The proprietor of a small town beauty salon, Ada receives a huge spiky stone that, when ingested, physically transforms him into Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah.

We’ll be discussing bakla, gay, and queer identities in the Philippines and in transnational communities. And we’ll also be enjoying the camp since there will be a lot of it. See you there!

Update: You can listen to the movie discussion on the Tinig Ng Masa podcast.
