Tuesday, April 9th, 2019 @ 7PM in Manhattan [silent film accompaniment]
After a teenager (Louise Brooks) is raped and impregnated by her father’s colleague, she refuses to marry her attacker and is sent by her father to a hellish reformatory. Following 1928’s Beggars of Life, Diary of a Lost Girl marks a particularly powerful and socially minded period of Brooks’s brief but electric career.
