No Longer Showing.

AMBOY occupies the boundaries between art and film, script and improvisation, horror and fantasy, cinema and theater, reality and deception, sparkling with homemade music and numerous vivid cameos. AMBOY promotes not bourgeois, patriarchal individualism but collaborated creation from within community. This collective approach, wide open to the input of the outside world, wraps principles of inclusion, indie rock, collaboration and experimentation in the liberating potential of narrative fiction.  AMBOY is a film by Frances Scholz based on a screenplay co-written and co-produced by Scholz and Mark von Schlegell. First premiering at the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts as an exhibition in 2015, the cinematic-theatrical performance at The Kitchen was organized by Alaina Claire Feldman.

Live performers will include: Penny Arcade, Kath Bloom, Cross / Leslie Allison and Lily Benson, Cherry Daiquiri, Alaina Claire Feldman, Paul Giamatti, Sergej Jensen, John MillerMagnus Schaefer, Mark von Schlegell, and Jamie Stevens.

May 8, 7pm
Tickets $15

Frances Scholz: AMBOY is made possible with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
