Director John Boorman’s 1972 epic Deliverance starts with an all-male canoeing trip down a river soon to be flooded, but turns into a battle between city and country when one camper shoots a hillbilly with an arrow to stop his friend from being raped, forcing the men to flee into the forest. For her conceptual 2008 remake Deliver, Jennifer Montgomery stays true to the plot but replaces the male leads with women, substituting the original’s themes of masculinity and homophobia for a less-sensational examination of sexual violence, birth and nature. The film screens for free tonight, with director Montgomery in attendance.
