The Pink Satin Suit film in Houston

October 25th, 2005 · No Comments

The Pink Satin Suit premieres in Houston tomorrow night (Wednesday, October 26) at 7 p.m. at Aurora Picture Show. This is a documentary about New Orleans photographer Johnny Donnels, by Anastasia and Will Lyman. Proceeds benefit KATFund.

Here are details:

Nearly sixty years ago in New Guinea, a homesick New Orleans kid swore the Army would be the last employer he ever had. Today, Johnny Donnels’ photography is known all over the world. The last of the great Bohemians, Johnny himself is an icon of the French Quarter, where he runs a gallery filled with his own art. The documentary also includes appearances by musician Jerry Jeff Walker, a close friend of Johnny Donnels.

Proceeds from this screening benefit KATFund, a grant-making fund established by the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, to provide financial support for visual artists in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama who were affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Red beans and rice donated by Treebeards. Admission a paltry $5.
