See Todd Haynes's controversial masterpiece, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 1991 Sundance Film Festival, in a new print released for its 20th anniversary.

Director Haynes has gone on to create Oscar nominees Far From Heaven and I'm Not There and the much-hyped HBO mini-series Mildred Pierce. This second thrillingly cinematic feature was among the most fervently debated films of the 1990s and a trailblazing landmark of queer cinema. Inspired by the writings of Jean Genet, Poison audaciously interweaves a trio of transgressive tales that range in tone from that of a mock TV documentary to that of a delirious 1950s' sci-fi melodrama. (85 mins., 35mm)
