If I wasn't going to see The Queers on Sunday then I would be attending this...

After nearly a decade as American Vogues most subversive fashion photographer, William Klein made Qui étes-vous Polly Maggoo?, a scathing and outlandish laugh at 60s fashionista France. It centres on buck-toothed American beauty Polly, who comes to Paris to model and winds up the subject of a vapid TV documentary, attracting the romantic attentions of both a TV exec and the Prince of Borodine.

A surreal, decadent deconstruction of the glamour scene, impeccably dressed in gorgeous high contrast black-and-white.

Selected and introduced by Marie Galipienso, a friend of the Monorail Film Club.

This Sunday, 7.30pm at the GFT.
