A collaborative repertory series presented with UNO Women’s and Gender Studies Program. This series is generously supported by Sam Walker.
Selections include a history-spanning documentary on gay Hollywood (CELLULOID CLOSET), experimental milestones (Shirley Clarke’s PORTRAIT OF JASON, John Water’s FEMALE TROUBLE), Nineties arthouse masterpieces (ORLANDO, ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER), contemporary critical darlings (PARIAH from 2011, CAROL from 2015, and KIKI from 2016), and the rock opera HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH. Excitingly, the series will include a Filmmaker Screening of THE WATERMELON WOMAN, a 1996 indie gem, followed by Q&A with director Cheryl Dunye.
