(Rob Epstein, Jeffrey Friedman, US 1995, 102 min.)
ImageOut of the Archives! Using the seminal work of GLBT and AIDS activist Vito Russo as a starting point, Epstein and Friedman trace the history of the depiction of gays and lesbians on film; those that were obvious and those that squeaked by censors in stealth mode. Utilizing film clips and personal accounts of working in Hollywood, this documentary draws a vivid portrait of the barriers and motivations driving the GLBT filmmaking community. With commentary by Lily Tomlin, Gore Vidal, Quentin Crisp, Tony Curtis, and other legends of media. Tickets available at www.imageout.org. Note early start time. No Take-10s accepted for this screening.
