The Parker Posey Film Festival is dedicated to celebrating one of the most unique American actresses working today through a series of screenings and discussions.
For this double bill we bring back to the festival, by popular demand, the incredible and criminally unseen Party Girl from a beautiful 35mm print. A tale of love, life and librarian-ism in 1990s New York, the film is Fun with a capital F. A soundtrack pulled from the dancefloors of the day, costumes from Parker's then extensive wardrobe and a supporting cast of superb actors, there is good reason why Girls creator Lena Dunham has the film's poster on her wall.
Screening alongside this we're incredibly excited to bring the UK premiere of season 3 of the Emmy award winning comedy Louie and the Parker starring episodes Daddy’s Girlfriend Part 1&2. The series is brainchild of comedian Louis C.K and his innovative production style and total creative control have given rise to one of Parker's finest performances in recent years.
There will be a Party Girl inspired party in the ICA following the screening. See the programme for day two of the Parker Posey Film Festival →
