We will start the evening at Film Streams to view The Celluloid Closet at 4:30. After the movie we will head over to Spaghetti Works to hold our discussion. Parents should be aware that the movie is rated R. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 26th, so that we may make a reservation at Spaghetti Works. (We will also be discussing what movies we will be showing at Teen Movie Night in the upcoming months, so teens are advised to bring movie suggestions)
Second Unitarian is proud to be a promotional partner with Film Streams on Gender Revolt!: A Celebration of Queer Cinema (August 26th – September 27th), a collaborative repertory series presented with UNO Women’s and Gender Studies Program. This series is generously supported by Sam Walker. Film Streams is located at 1340 Mike Fahey Street.
From the bawdy Pre-Code era when homosexuality was implied in the sensational stories of wayward souls, to the innuendo-heavy mid-century melodramas of directors like Douglas Sirk, to the New Queer Cinema movement of the late 80s and 90s, and arriving at a current climate where an LGBTQ story can win the Best Picture Oscar, the movies have been one of the most visible spaces for representations of queer lives and experiences. In ten films, Gender Revolt! will attempt to highlight this heritage. All show times are posted about two weeks before the movie. Find out more at filmstreams.org
