"Narcissister Organ Player" at the Film Forum
Last Saturday evening, A&N Salon regular Liz Margolies, visual artist Julie Lindell, April and I attended a screening of Narcissister Organ Player at the Film Forum in Manhattan. I had not heard of Narcissister before seeing the film, but Julie had attended one of her live performances a few years ago and sang her praises. I must admit I was very impressed. Narcissister had received national fame after her appearance on America's Got Talent, and publicized rumors of a brief tryst with Marilyn Manson.

As you can see from the images, Narcissister keeps her face hidden behind masks and under wigs. The film shared personal details about her relationship with her parents, and her upbringing in white, suburban California as a mixed-race child. Her search for her identity is very much a part of her story.
Catch Narcissister Organ Player if you can. I am looking forward to news of her future projects and continued success.
