If you’re jonesing for a hit of sexy low-budget art cinema, head down to Sewanee tonight. In conjunction with the gallery’s current exhibition of photographs by controversial New York artist Laurel Nakadate, the university will be screening her 2010 feature-length film, The Wolf Knife. Word to the wise: Leave the family at home for this one. Nakadate’s twisted work is known for confronting taboo notions about desire, domination and voyeurism.
In this film, two alluring teenage girls road-trip from Florida to Nashville in search of their former third-grade teacher, a salacious middle-aged bachelor played by none other than Dave Cloud of Springwater karaoke fame. Nashville’s favorite dive bar crooner-turned-actor also appeared in Harmony Korine’s Gummo and Trash Humpers. His performance alone is bound to be worth the trip.
Watch the trailer after the jump.
In true Nakadate fashion, the film is packed with steamy scenes that toe the line between exploitation and general creepiness. Who doesn’t love that?
