In her lifetime, Flawless Sabrina has been an artist, a psychologist, an activist, and an icon of drag performance. Her apartment on East 73rd Street has become equally legendary as a transformative space and a hub, where she continues to practice the art of the tarot as passed down to her by her grandmother. In 2014, Sabrina performed over one hundred readings in conjunction with the Whitney Biennial. Giving fifteen-minute readings in the Roof Deck Sculpture Garden, Sabrina’s tarot practice is informed by her unique insight and experience between worlds.

About the Film
Directed by Terrence Malick
A young couple goes on a Midwest crime spree in Terrence Malick’s hypnotic debut feature. Rebellious Kit (Martin Sheen) takes off with teen baton-twirler Holly (Sissy Spacek) after shooting her father (Warren Oates) when he tries to split up the pair. The two flee, running from the law and consequences, through the Badlands and beyond.
