DeuXX is psyched to bring to Montreal the American Genre Film Archives’s brand spanking new restoration of two films by 90s self-proclaimed “Queen of Underground Film”, Sarah Jacobson!

Jacobson’s promising career was sadly cut way too short, when the filmmaker lost her battle with cancer at the tragic young age of 32. Hugely inspired by punk music and zine culture, she was a DIY powerhouse, writing, producing, shooting and even distributing her own work. Now thanks to this new restoration, Jacobson’s infectious riot girl spirit lives on stronger than ever, with new audiences getting the pleasure to discover her still largely unseen lo-fi grunge-tastic sex-positive films!

MARY JANE’S NOT A VIRGIN ANYMORE
USA / 98 minutes / 1997 / Original English Version

After losing her virginity under extremely disappointing circumstances (to say the least), 17-year-old suburban high-schooler Mary Jane is left feeling like sex definitely doesn’t live up to the hype. She finds support and counsel from her colleagues at the one-theatre repertory cinema where they all work (when not busy slacking off and gossiping about each other’s love lives). This leads Mary Jane to discover the joys of masturbation, before later encountering a sensitive hottie who will prove to her how fantastic sex can be with a considerate and generous partner.

Preceded by:
I WAS A TEENAGE SERIAL KILLER
USA / 27 minutes / 1993 / Original English Version

In the filmmaker’s own words: “A 19-year-old girl has a series of run-ins with various condescending men.”
