Wild Nights with Emily 

2018 | USA | 84 MIN WRITER & DIRECTOR MADELEINE OLNEK
Beloved comic Molly Shannon leads in this humorous yet bold reappraisal of Dickinson, informed by her private letters.  Emily (Shannon) finds herself facing a troupe of male literary gatekeepers too confused by her genius to take her work seriously.  A timely critique of how women's history is rewritten, Wild Nights With Emily remains vibrant, irreverent and tender--a perhaps closer depiction of Emily Dickinson's real life than anything seen before.

End of The Century

2019 USA 84 minutes dir. Lucio Castro
In his alluring debut feature, Lucio Castro offers both a sun-soaked European travelogue and an epic, decades-spanning romance. When Ocho (Juan Barberini), a 30-something Argentine poet on vacation in Barcelona, spots Javi (Ramón Pujol), a Spaniard from Berlin, from the balcony of his Airbnb, the attraction is subtle but persistent. After a missed connection on the beach, a third chance encounter escalates to a seemingly random hookup. But are these two merely beautiful strangers in a foreign city or are they part of each other’s histories—and maybe even their destinies?

Gay Chorus Deep South

2019 | USA | 100 MIN WRITER & DIRECTOR DAVID CHARLES RODRIGUES
In response to a wave of discriminatory anti-LGBTQ laws in Southern states and the divisive 2016 election, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus embarks on a tour of the American Deep South. The tour brings a message of music, love and acceptance, to communities and individuals confronting intolerance. What emerges is a less divided America, where the lines that divide us—faith, politics, sexual identity—are erased through the soaring power of music, humanity and a little drag.
