Phyllis Wattis Theater

Video artist O'Marah pays tribute to the favorite film from her youth by re-creating Coolidge's Valley Girl with a cast of friends. Both films offer a modern-day fairy tale that seduces the audience with its idealism; O'Marah employs rudimentary sets and amateur performers to bring Coolidge's characters to life, exaggerating the audience's yearning to believe in the story's fictional world despite its transparency.

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