FDL Movie Night: Camp Casserole

By: Monday August 6, 2012 5:00 pm

Camp Casserole, directed by Anthony Pedone who is here with us tonight live from the Brooklyn Arts Film Festival, documents the making of Steve Balderson’s Casserole Club, a feature about suburban housewives in 1969 whose dinner party casserole-themed evenings take them and their husbands into dark and twisted parts of their own psyches, framed by Judy Garland’s death, the Apollo moon landing, and the Manson killings.

Also joining us will be cast members Iris Berry, Jennifer Grace, Starina Johnson, Michael Maize, Kelly Pedone, Susan Traylor, and Jane Wiedlin.

And, more importantly, The Go-Go’s were the first all-female band to top the charts who wrote their own music and played their own instruments. Their debut album, Beauty and the Beat, held the number one spot on the Billboard chart for six consecutive weeks and went triple platinum, selling over 3 million copies.
