GREY GARDENS
1976, Janus Films, 94 min, USA, Dir: Albert Maysles, David Maysles, Ellen Hovde, Muffie Meyer

Meet Big and Little Edie Beale: mother and daughter, high-society dropouts and reclusive cousins of Jackie Onassis. The two manage to thrive together amid the decay and disorder of their East Hampton, New York, mansion, making for an eerily ramshackle echo of the American Camelot. An impossibly intimate portrait, this 1976 documentary by Albert and David Maysles, codirected by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer, quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen.


HOCUS POCUS
1993, Buena Vista Pictures, 96 min, USA, Dir: Kenny Ortega

Over 300 years ago, the Sanderson sisters (Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy) were executed in Salem, Massachusetts, for witchcraft, but they swore to return. On Halloween, new kid in town Max (Omri Katz) lights a cursed candle that resurrects the witches, who seek to steal the lives of Salem's children. Now Max, his sister Dani, his crush Alison and Thackery Binx, a child who was turned into a cat by the witches, must stop the evil before it's too late.


CHARLIE AND HANNAH’S GRAND NIGHT OUT
CHARLIE EN HANNAH GAAN UIT
2017, 75 min, Belgium, Dir: Bert Scholiers

Charlie (Evelien Bosmans) is witty, inaccessible and, as she puts it, “fundamentally dialectic.” Hannah (Daphne Wellens) is chatty, high-strung and constantly love-struck. They are enjoying a night on the town when one of them discovers a magical candy, and suddenly body parts can talk, pineapples can fly and the two young women can traverse the galaxy with ease. A playfully surreal look at the neuroses and intoxicating possibilities of life at 26.
