Leading the pack on Thursday night is Paragraph 175, the latest documentary from Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, whose The Times of Harvey Milk and The Celluloid Closet are already considered classics. Paragraph 175 uses archival footage and interviews with survivors to tell the stories of gay men and women in Nazi Germany. Thursday's program also includes the short Desert Hate, about the pro-gay march and rally in Tucson that occurred on February 13 this year.
Friday's program features the male body, as appreciated by other male bodies, in four films, including the sexy Gypsy Boys and the lighthearted Get Your Stuff. On Saturday, you can fill your afternoon with an assortment of queer shorts, and follow it up with a program of films on transgender issues. Saturday evening features a selection of documentaries on issues surrounding AIDS and the gay community, and Saturday night is "Women's Night Out," the counterpart to Friday's gay men's schedule, with three lesbian-themed films, including the well received Julie and Me, a light-hearted lesbian romance.
The program concludes on Sunday with a selection of films on women in sports, and the final documentary, Wallowitch and Ross, about 70-something gay men who have been together for over 30 years.
