9:34 a.m., March 10, 2010----The 2010 Lesbian-Gay Film Series will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays through April at the movie theatre in the Trabant University Center. The films are free and open to the public.
They are scheduled as follows:
April 6, Patrik, Age 1.5. A cozy, fun film that won the Jury Award for Best Feature Film at last summer's Philadelphia QFest gay and lesbian film festival. This Swedish film takes place in Denmark and features a gay couple who adopt a much different (and older) child than they were expecting. It is funny, heartwarming and unpredictable. Still making the rounds of film festivals, it will become available on DVD later this spring. Ella Lemhagen directs.
April 13, Just Say Love. One of the finest films in last year's Philadelphia QFest, the story begins between two men meeting just for sex then becomes something more. The “straight” man flees into the safe arms of his girlfriend and their newborn child. However, the film has a genuinely surprising ending. This is one of the most successful stage-to-screen adaptations in gay film history.
An exciting bonus is that the writer and executive producer, David Mauriello, will be on hand for a question and answer session after the film. The film, currently in the film festival circuit, is not available commercially. Bill Humphries directs.
April 20, Shank. This exciting, moving, and intense drama is the only film in the series that is already available on DVD. The film's screening is part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. To see the full series of events related to UD's Sexual Assault Awareness Month, go to the Web site.
Shank portrays a British gang member coming to grips with his homosexuality who desires to leave the gang. The film has multiple sub-plots and uses a handheld camera technique to enhance the impact of the story. A discussion afterwards will be led by a member of UD's Sexual Offense Support.
Organizers warn that there is a violent rape scene towards the end of the film but note that during Winter Session the SGST/WOMS 301 Gay-Lesbian Film class viewed the film and, despite its intensity, recommended it for this series. Simon Pearce directs in his debut film.
April 27, Hannah Free. Another hot film still making the rounds of film festivals, Hannah Free won the Audience Award for Best Feature Film in Qfest last summer, where Sharon Gless received the Gay Icon Award. Gless -- well-known for her TV series Cagney and Lacey and her role in Queer as Folk as Michael's eccentric mother -- is an outspoken advocate for LGBT equality.
Adapted from Claudia Allen's award-winning play, Hannah Free is the story of a passionate but thwarted love affair between two women who have shared a lifetime of friendship and love. Wendy Jo Carlton is the director.
The series is sponsored by Sexuality and Gender Studies, Women's Studies, the Office of Equity and Inclusion, Haven, and the Faculty Senate Committee on Cultural Activities and Public Events.
