For its February offering, the Cane Fire Film Series screens Bettie Page Reveals All, an intimate portrait into 50s pin-up legend Bettie Page.

 

 

Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Mark Mori's Bettie Page Reveals All is an intimate look at one of the world's most recognized sex symbols, told in her own words for the first time.

 

In Mori's alluring documentary, the real Bettie Page emerges from the veil of myth and rumor via audio interviews taped a decade prior to her death in 2008.

 

With earthy, razor sharp wit, Page tells her life storyfrom humble beginnings as one of six children in an impoverished southern family, to high school salutatorian, to scandalous 50s pin-up model, to shocking retirement in 1957 at the peak of her modeling career.

 

With a stunning array of gorgeous photographs, unusual archival material, and playful movie footage, Bettie Page Reveals All shows how Page's unabashed sexual expression and provocative poses set the stage for the sexual revolution and ushered in a modern era in fashion.

 

The Cane Fire Film Series presents Bettie Page Reveals All on Monday, Feb. 10, at 7:30 p.m., at Acadiana Center for the Arts, located at 101 W. Vermilion St., in downtown Lafayette. Admission is $12, and $10 for students. For more information visit AcadianaCenterfortheArts.org.
