The VITO Project is delighted to present The Slippers, a 2016 feature length documentary directed by Morgan White about the The Ruby Slippers from The Wizard of Oz.
The Slippers is a delightful and thoroughly entertaining documentary about the unbelievable story of Dorothy's Ruby Slippers from The Wizard of Oz. Through first-hand accounts and archival interviews, The Slippers details the life of the Ruby Slippers after their sale at the famed 1970 MGM auction. Discovered by costumer Kent Warner, it is still not known how many pairs existed. That mystery has only helped to propel the shoes to the forefront of the Hollywood memorabilia market. They have been bought, stolen, and coveted by many and are considered the most important piece of Hollywood memorabilia. A must-see for anyone with a penchant for old Hollywood movies.
The screening will be followed by an open discussion. This month we are honoured to have as a special guest Judy Garland's all time biggest fan SUSIE BOYT , talking with our own lovely Seán McGovern about her obsession and her marvellously quirky and entertaining memoir ' MY JUDY GARLAND LIFE'
The project is endorsed by BFI Flare: London LGBT film festival, 56 Dean St, QX Magazine, Gay’s the Word, ACT UP London, Gay Mates, a Change of Scene, the Cara Trust, I-Base, UK-CAB, Positively UK, Gaydio, NAZ Project, Frank Byrne & his walkers and Broad Appeal Podcast.
