LOOK, LESBIANS: Female desire the vampire way is what Amy Goldstein's film Because the Dawn gets into.

The free 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 10, flicks also include Carmelita Tropicana: Your Kunst is Your Waffen, described by the organizers as "lesbian prison film meets West Side Story meets after-school special." See the films in the UA Modern Languages Auditorium. Call 621-1239 for more information.
