DECEMBER 8 | "Poppy Field" screening + Director Q&A

Film begins 7:30| Group meets 7:15 PM in Lobby| Jacob Burns Film Center


 


Poppy Field
Q&A with Director Eugen Jebeleanu
2020. 81 m. Eugen Jebeleanu. Film Movement. Romania. Romanian with subtitles. Rated NR.

Just as his long-distance boyfriend comes to visit, Cristi (Conrad Mericoffer), a young police officer, is called in for an intervention at a movie theatre, where a homophobic group has interrupted the screening of a queer-themed film. This is the starting point for a piercing portrait of a man at odds with his sexuality, trying to find a balance between his job in a macho, hierarchical environment and his personal life as a closeted gay person. The situation worsens when one of the protesters threatens to out Cristi, triggering a complex domino effect related to his identity. First-time director Jebeleanu creates, almost in real time, a tense huis-clos drama about censorship and self-censorship in a world that makes it hard to be free if you are different.

Q&A with Director Eugen Jebeleanu

Wednesday, Dec. 8 2021, 7:30

Eugen Jebeleanu is a Romanian theatre and film director. For more than ten years, his projects have been centered around political and social subjects and his artistic endeavor is focused on giving voice to anonymous individuals, to those who don’t adhere to the dominant culture and revolt against systems which censor freedom of expression. He has worked with prestigious theatres around the world, like the National Theatre in Stuttgart and the Opera de Lyon. His creations have been programmed in theatre festivals in Romania, Poland, Denmark, Germany, Republic of Moldova, and France. Poppy Field is his first feature film.

Tickets: 10 (members), 15 (nonmembers)

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

"This adept first feature quickly gathers momentum, delivering a knotty portrait of a man who, like the culture in which he lives, is still wrestling with the very idea of homosexuality"
Wendy Ide, Screen International

40 Major Moments: Early History of HIV/AIDS-Online Exhibition

HONORING WORLD AIDS DAY

.
.
AIDS and HIV are indelibly etched in stone in our community so the most important thing we can do is learn, never forget the extraordinary contributions that our predecessors gave us and what they lost and sacrificed.
.
With this exhibition, we honor those who lost their lives, the fearless souls who took care of loved ones who died, the activists who stood up to indifference and cruelty, the scientists who worked tirelessly for breakthroughs, and for the allies who used their influence to make the world more compassionate for those living with AIDS/HIV.
