Doris Wishman’s recently restored sexploitation classic Nude on the Moon (1961) stands out among American sexploitation cinema of the 1960s. With the help of some inheritance funds, two scientists build a space ship to travel to the moon. When they land, the astonished men encounter a nudist camp populated by telepathic ‘moonatics’.
Accompanying Nude on the Moon is long-time Wishman supporter Peggy Ahwesh’s Martina's Playhouse (1989). A counterpoint to the excesses of Wishman’s antics, Ahwesh’s intimate home movie follows the young Martina as she explores gender with childish naiveite.
This screening marks the publication of The Films of Doris Wishman, edited By Peggy Awesh and published by Inpatient Press and Light Industry.
