Little seen in the U.S., Toshio Matsumoto's 1969 film Funeral Parade of Roses was loosely based on Oedipus Rex and examines the underground gay and transgender culture of Tokyo in the late 1960s. It blends narrative, experimental and documentary elements and was cited by director Stanley Kubrick as a major influence on his A Clockwork Orange.

The Broad Theater will screen Funeral Parade of Roses tonight, July 15, through Wednesday, July 19 at 8:30 p.m. The film has just received a 4K restoration. More information and tickets are here. Don't miss the trailer below.
