Tscherkassky appropriates and manipulates footage from Furie's psychological horror film The Entity to delve deeper into the experiences and psyche of Furie's protagonist (Barbara Hershey), the victim of paranormal sexual abuse. Using contact prints he made from sequences in The Entity, Tscherkassky creates his own eerie, distorted, nonlinear narratives, introducing burns, bleeds, and multiple exposures to explore the protagonist's mental state and physical torment.

$7 general; $5 SFMOMA members, students, and seniors. Tickets are available at the Museum (with no surcharge) or online.
