Experience a special live presentation of the acclaimed Midnight Mass podcast, as co-hosts Peaches Christ and Michael Varrati explore the Bay Area’s rich connection to the world of cult films. From the counterculture movement to the queer underground and beyond, the Bay Area has always been a landscape of boundary-pushing artistic expression. Featuring an in-depth, multimedia-enriched discussion, the duo will dig into a transgressive, nuanced world that includes Hitchcockian thrills, glamorous astronauts, femme fatale serial killers, and beyond.

Joining the conversation are award-winning filmmaker H.P. Mendoza (Colma: The Musical, Bitter Melon) and renowned graphic artist Skinner (Shrine of Abominations) to peel back the layers of the Bay Area’s diverse, provocative, and wild cinematic offerings that helped change the greater cinematic landscape forever.
