OUT at the Movies schedules group outings to films of interest to the local LGBT community. RSVP required to The LOFT's Helpline: (914) 948-2932 x13.
Next Meeting: March 12, 7:30pm
Jacob Burns Film Center, 405 Manville Road, Pleasantville, NY 10570
Event Description: Re-released for its 20th anniversary in a pristine 2K HD restoration, The Watermelon Woman is the story of a 20-something black lesbian (played by director Cheryl Dunye) struggling to make a documentary about Fae Richards, a beautiful and elusive 1930s black film actress. A landmark of New Queer Cinema, it’s “funny and smart, full of astute observations about identity and history,” says the Village Voice. “Dunye’s audacious, joyous debut feature captures the process of falling hopelessly in love with the movies.”
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 914-948-2932 x13. The group will have a gathering after the event for coffee & discussion at a nearby eatery.
