elcome to the 18th San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival. As we turn 18, queer cinema also comes of age. From

to

lesbian and gay movies are a hot commodity

today, and we're celebrating with the biggest, most excit­ ing and wide-ranging program ever. Sneak Previews and World Premieres

This year's Festival boasts a record number of sneak previews and world premieres. Highlights include two brilliant new films by Isaac Julien, A Darker Side Of Black and Black And White In Color; Erotique, an international omnibus showcasing the tal­ ents of Monika Treut and Susie Bright; Under Heat, a moody American melodrama starring Lee Grant; Your Heart Is All Mine, a German film about a butch butcher and lesbo jealousy; World And Time Enough, a new comedy from gay America's heartland; plus, of course, Rose Troche's sexy, slangy dyke drama, Go Fish.

of the makers will be here, thanks to the generous support of the Canadian Consulate Trade Office, Telefilm Canada and the Government of Quebec in Los Angeles. Retrospectives and Rarities

In collaboration with the San Francisco, based Silent Film Festival, we present Ernst Lubitsch's 1919 curio I Don't Want to Be a Man! , with live musical accompaniment. We also offer Hollywood's technicolor crossdressing classic, Calamity Jane, Andy Warhol's notorious Bike Boy, Camp For Boys And Girls, and a rarely seen gay German feature, The Consequence, made in 1977 by the director of In The Line Of Fire.

International Panorama

Strap yourself in for a quick trip around the world. We've imported images from all over the globe, including Russia's first gay dramas (The Creation Of Adam and One Hundred Days Before The Command) and a punchy tribute to India's legendary feminist stunt actress by Bombay gay filmmaker Riyad Wadia (Fearless: The Hunterwali Story). Plus Manuela 's Loves, a passionate and political lesbian triangle from France; Muscle, an erotic classic from Japan; The Neapolitans, a hilarious Almodovar-style yarn set in Southern Italy; The Legend Of Fong Sai-Yuk, the latest Hong Kong cross­ dressing kung fu extravaganza; and, from New Zealand, our campy co-gender Closing Night premiere, Desperate Remedies Canada with a 'Q'

Canada has always produced some of the best lesbian and gay movies we've seen. Last year we premiered Forbidden Love and Zero Patience; this year we invite you to enjoy two compelling documentaries, Out: Stories Of Lesbian & Gay Youth, and Long Time Comin', as well as some unique Canadian features - Cap Tourmente, a polymorphous perverse family thriller; Kanada, a clever political satire; and Super 8 1/2, Bruce LaBruce's wayward autobiog­ raphy. Many Canadian short films and videos are also placed throughout the pro­ gram (indicated with a .. symbol) and most

Left to our own devices: James Mackay and Derek Jarman

James Mackay is best known as Derek Jarman's producer, but he's also been responsible for an abundant body of gay work in Britain since the early '80s. In four specially curated programs, Mackay traces English gay cinema from avant-garde to pop promos. The Festival also presents the U.S. premiere of two music-driven movies produced by James Mackay: Projections, Derek Jarman's 1989 film for the Pet Shop Boys first tour, and Glitterbug, Jarman's final film (made after Blue) - a wordless tour-de-force propelled by new music by Brian Eno. Guest Curators

Guest-curated programs this year showcase works in an expansive range of areas. Community United Against Violence (CUAV) has compiled a series of films about violence against lesbians and gays. Videomaker Quentin Lee presents an homage to homo horror movies, Return Of The Scary Queens. New Mexico-based curator Jaime Smith offers up Two Spirits: Three Visions, a celebratory showcase of new works by Native American film and videomakers. From Jeffrey Winter, infa­ mous presenter of the 99c Queer Video Festival, comes Fabian's Freeak Show, while Matt Ebert eyeballs new Pacific

Northwest drag videos in Rain City Confidential. GLAAD SF/BA culls the best of the television year in Seen Anything Good Lately? Filmrrtaker Sande Zeig pays homage to her lesbian New ,York Giants.

and special programs; in the daytime there'll be 3 different screenings (at 12 noon, 2:00pm and 4:00pm) for the price of gallery admiSSion - that's three for $3. For the full program, see pages 63-64.

Opening Night:

Go Fish

Bay Area Premiere Sponsored by JOE BOXER Thu June 9 7:00pm $8 CAS G09A extremely proud to present one of the We're most important films of the '90s as our

Opening Night feature. Go Fish was a popu­ lar hit at this year's Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals. This slangy, sexy comedy got snatched up by the Samuel Goldwyn Company for their summer slate of releases. ' Catch it here first, and bring your friends. Go Fish serves up bundles of gossip, drama and sex as it eyes the lives of an extraordinary group of lesbian friends. Kia (f. Wendy McMillan), a professor, is involved with Evy (Migdalia Melendez), a divorcee who's not out to her mother, yet. Kia decides to set up her roommate Max (Guinevere' Turner) with an ex-student : . of hers, Ely (Y. S. Brodie), • who's just ending a long­ distance relationship. And then there', s the perpetually horny Daria (Anastasia Sharp).

~ •

Many years in the making, this debut feature from writer/director Rose Troche and co­ writer Guinevere Turner was one of Frameline's 1992 Completion Fund grant recipients. Co-executive produced by Tom Kalin (Swoon) and 1994 Frameline Award­ winner Christine Vachon, Go Fish has the

charm and audacity of such debut indepen­ dent features as She's Gotta Have It and Slacker. A three-star review from the prestigious ' Screen International compares Go Fish to 1991's Poison, suggesting that Go Fish sig­ nals "the belated advent of lesbian cinema," and it brightly pegs the film's key audience as, simply, "lesbians everywhere."

Hisayasu Sato's Muscle starts with a fleshy muscle-men montage, and a torrid sex scene which ends with one lover cutting off the oth­ er's arm - that's just in the first three min­ utes! In Tokyo, a journalist for a physique magazine falls into a demented, operatic S/M affair with a dangerously charismat­ � ic bodybuilder. Muscle's pleasures � don't lie in its plot (of which there's � not much, anyway), but in its pas­ sionate perversity. While Muscle is one of the hottest, most exciting discoveries of the year, be warned: it is certainly not for the faint­ hearted.

the arrival of hairy-chested immigrant Lawrence (Kevin Smith).

Dorothea wants Lawrence to marry her opium-addled sister Rose (Kiri Mills); Rose wants to marry flamboyant queen Fraser (Cliff Curtis); Lawrence wants to devour Dorothea, who's in love with Anne; Anne wants Dorothea to enter a marriage of con-venience with a sleazy local politician. Life in Hope is starting to seem more exciting than a week in.San Francisco. Orlando on acid, Querelle cross-dressed by Barbarella, Vogue meets Queen Christina... It's very easy to get excited about Desperate Remedies;. the film posi-

tively inspires giddiness. Plot points aside, Remedies is driven by a rampantly operat­ ic score, eye-popping color, and a gener. ous, demented gay sensibility. A tale of lesbian triumph, peopled by Playgirl pin­ ups, and directed by New Zealand's most important gay filmmakers (Stewart Main and Peter Wells made the far more serious Death In The Family, which we screened in 1987), Desperate Remedies is the per­ fect way to mark the end of Lesbian &

sneak preview, preceded by the presentation

of the 1994 Frameline Award to Christine

Vachon, a key figure in new queer cinema, and producer and collaborator on some of the best lesbian and gay films to have appeared over the last five years. We can't tell you what our surprise movie is, but you'll hate yourself if you miss it. Just as Poisori became the benchmark for gay films in the '90s, this new film sets the standard for the next wave of queer cinema.

Please join us for

one of our most exciting evenings ever. Then join us after the movie for our annual cel­ ebratory Festival Gala Dinner at the new Center for the Arts at Yerba Buena Gardens, starting at 9:30pm.

rior to tonight's Gala Surprise Sneak Preview, Christine Vachon will be pre­

sented on-stage with this year's Frameline Award for outstanding achievement in les­ bian and gay media arts. We are proud to honor Christine Vachon for her longstanding service to the lesbian and

gay community. As producer of such land­ mark features as Poison and Swoon,

Vachon's committment to excellence and innovation has contributed to a new profile for lesbian and gay cinema in the 90s. We salute Vachon tonight for her visionary com­ mittment to such projects as: Rose Troche's Go Fish (as co-executive producer), Steve McLean's Postcards From America (p�oduc­ er), Todd Haynes' Dottie Gets Spanked (pro­ ducer) and Safe (producer). Commenting on the presentation of the 1994 Award, Frameline Board President Karl Knapper says, "This is the first time the award has gone to a producer. Producing may seem less sexy, but it's just as much hard work as directing. It's a privilege to honor a unique, influential talent."

Preparing to graduate from elementary school, L-' Alicia must now part with her best friend and blood-sister Margarite. Resistant to the idea of traditional women's roles, Alicia works in a butcher shop where, amidst the hanging meat and bones, she day­ dreams about her mother and writes letters to Margarite.

This program runs the gamut from documen­ taries to narratives to just plain fun. Enjoy the simple charms of the street­ hustling hair-queens in the hilarious Judy's Do, and the droll shenanigans of two British drag queens in Love & Lashes. Transcending the "so what's it like to be a transsexual?" documentary genre, Denajua, I Like My Name is a moving portrait of a charming fashion designer who happens to be a male-to-female transsexual. In 21st Century Nuns, England's branch of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is pro­ filed. Miss Otis is a '40s-style noir crime thriller with a twist (it's in brilliant color) and adds new meaning to the compliment "beautifully shot."

erenice Abbott: A View Of The 20th Cen­ B tury is a portrait of one of the richest

careers in the history of photography. The 92 year-old Abbott shines as she talks about her life, her work and her circle of friends which included such famous artists and writers as James Joyce, Andre Gide and Janet Flanner. Focusing on Abbott's prolific PRESTO PRINTS work as an artist, the film L-' also reveals clues about her relationships with women, including such notable contemporaries as Djuna Barnes and Edna St. Vincent Milay. Extensive archival film footage and photo-graphs are comple­ mented by interviews with scholars as film­ makers Martha Wheelock and Kay Weaver trace the fascinating life of this remarkable lesbian of the twentieth century. _ _ _ _

Berenice Abbott: A View of the Twentieth Century reveals the life of one of our great­ est woman artists, who not only endured ­ but triumphed - writing books, patenting inventions, teaching at prestigious universi­ ties, and giving the world a grand body of work. - Lynette Molnar Plus, Noski Deville's sumptuous Loss Of Heat - an expressive fictional portrayal of a pair of lesbian couples, 'one in Spain, the other in London, dealing with epilepsy.

This collection of reflections on bisexual I identity and relationships starts off with Wendy Jo Carlton's fun little interview with her bisexual pal in My Dinner At Dan's. Monica Nolan's fast-paced survey scans the range of public opinions, pro and con, on Lesbians Who Date Men. The locally pro­ duced Queers Among Queers offers up an articulate series of interviews with bi com­ munity activists. No Fairy Tale is a safe-sex PSA, and, in the bittersweet Simple Facts, a man tells us about the two people he's been thinking about all day - a woman and a man. And lastly, Strings recounts the story of Ani, a bi musician and her gang of friends. When Ani's friend dies of AIDS she decides it's time to move away, but her girl­ friend and her boyfriend don't want her to leave.

Young working class motorycyclist Joe Spencer is everyone's object of desire. But he's decidedly out of his element in the sophisticated world of Warhol's superstar friends - Viva, Ingrid Superstar, Brigid Polk and Ed Weiner. "One of the most liberating experiences of my life was seeing Bike Boy at a theater in Cambridge. I was with some ultra straight but sensitive, tolerant Harvard boys who froze in horror after the first two m inutes. Viva was in the bathtub with a man, telling him if he wanted to make plastic sculptures he should just do it and shut up about it... As I watched this film I thought: 'That's for me.'" - Gary Indiana, Village Voice Bike Boy dir. Andy Warhol 1967 USA 110

lack And White In C�lor documents the involvement of black people in British broadcasting from its earliest days. Pro­ duced by the British Film Institute for BBC TV, Isaac Julien'� tangy two-parter offers a concise social history of English race' relations, as well as some distinctly campy blasts-from-the-past. Part one deals with British TV from the BBC's 1936 opening night (featuring Ameri­ can song'n'dance duo Buck and Bubbles) through "the excitement and variety of negro entertainment" to the late '50s. In part two, Julien investigates the rise of social realism, and the achievements of Channel Four in the '80s and '90s (Hanif Kureishi describes the development of My Beautiful Laundrette). Black And White In Color is a fascinating counterpoint to Marlon Riggs' Color Adjust­ ment, which tackled similar terrain in rela­ tion to American TV. Entertainingly ency­ clopedic and quietly elegant, Julien's ' remarkable raid on the archives proves that there's more to British broadcasting than Masterpiece Theatre. Black And White In Color dir.

First, meet some of the real people behind Lou Reed's classic celebration of '60s ttans­ genderism, including Joe Dallesandro and " Holly Woodlawn. "Lou was fascinated by transvestites," claims Jayne I County, "He had this girl­ friend at the time called Rachel and she was a transsexual.

Then, walk this way: Mark Kidel's portrait of Boy George is a hypnotic story of narcis­ sism and neediness, drugs and drag. Boy Next Door covers nine years, from Culture Club's sudden success through to George's rebirth as a s.o lo celeb. Along the route, there's tons of amazing archive footage, some very queer fashions, a gripping inter­ view with B.G.'s ex, Jon Moss, and a sign of salvation. Looking back on it all, a candid George concludes, "Being gay is my only saving grace." I

ight films about the terror and pleasure of

tearooms and other publ ic places. Be pre­

pared: the style and tone of these works range

widely, from humorous to somber, from narra­

tive to experimental. (Two of the shorts in this program also contain brief scenes of graphic

violence.)

Intelligent and avant garde, Prince Of Peace is

the Koyaanisqatsi of toi let shorts. Reference takes a dim view of anonymous sex, and It

Never Was You is an extremely intense evoca­

tion of one i ts dangers.

From Australial, See

Saw has fun with a glory hole gag, while from Britain, Magic Cottage is a hil arious, wildly provocative spoof of Night Of The Living

Dead (to the tune of Barbra Streisand's

'Guilty,' Magic Cottage's end credit crawl

also includes a useful l ist of London's best tea­ rooms - bring a notepad).

Plus some other shorts inspired by adventures

in public places: sex elvis boy takes us to lon­ don's Hampstead Heath.

From Germany,

Adrian's Monday is a provocative skinhead

fantasy set in a school locker room.

Opinion ends the program ; it's a stylized,

serious piece about a priest, an actor and a bathhouse.

n the Spring of 1988, videomaker/activist

Gregg Bordowitz tested HIV-positive, quit

drugs and drinking, and came out to his par­

ents. Then, a good friend was diagnosed with breast cancer, and Bordowitz's grandparents were killed im an automobile accident. The

cumulative impact of all these events chal­

lenged his sense of identity, the way he under­ stood his own diagnosis and the relationship between illness and history. Anything but solemn, this imaginative, activist autobiography is a kaleidoscopic blast of visu-

al stimulation, intellectual irreverence and emotional confrontation. Painful and

difficult subjects are treated with humor and compassion. Everything is questioned... Bordowitz embraces all of this within a per­ sonal vision that is playful, passionate, angry, smart and sassy (with some klezmer music thrown in to top it all off). Ultimately he has given us a courageous work of art.

Ossi l i kes to drink, smoke, play poker and do a lot of thi ngs that are n ' t becom i ng to a respectable young lady. When her male guardian, Dr. Kersten, lays down the law, she decides to adopt a new wardrobe and assume the i dentity of a fashi onable young man . But when "gentleman" Ossi ends up i n t h e back of a cab with a drunken Dr. Kersten she learns that l i fe as a man isn ' t as easy as it looks ! Com ic in tone, the fil m explores the privileges and problems of gender and fea­ tures some charm i ng twists of homo- and lesbo-erotic humor. Th is is a rare opportun i ty to see this del ight­ ful earl y German fi l m by Ernst Lubitsch (Ninotchka, Heaven Ca n Wa i t) . Lubitsch discovered i ts star Ossi Oswal da, who came to be known as the "Mary Pickford of Germany." Oswalda charmed her audiences

Richard Dyer in person. "When I was growing up in the late 1 950s

and 1 960s, I assented that the lot of queers l i ke my sel f was a mel ancholy on e. I don 't

remember how exactly where I first picked up this i dea, but I do remember see i ng

myself in the characters of Geoff in A Taste Of Honey and both Reggie and Pete in The Leather Boys, or knowi ng that books with covers showing pairs of young men l ooki ng mournfu l l y downwards yet towards each other were for m e . . . Now what interests me i n l ooking at the image of the gay man as the sad young man is the way a stereotype can be com plex, var­ ied, intense and contradictory, an i mage of otherness i n which i t is sti l l possible to find oneself."

Through her com m a n d i ngly constructed cha racters (therapi sts, s i ster, mother, father) and di rect monologues, Downs creates an emotional j ourney for her audience that is deeply affecti ng, bold and cathartic.

are our images of the sleepy nations dappling the

Caribbean. But behind these soothing images dwell the realities of social repression. Carl

George 's History Will Accuse Me is an off-the­

cuff tour of Havana, identifying the disparities of Castro 's policies. Well-stocked boutiques and

opulent mansions on one side, decrepit digs and

depleted groceries on the other. The centerpiece

of George 's anti-travelogue is a rooftop party

thrown for his gay friends. They would've raised the roof if there was one.

disjointed psychedel ic j oyride with a

homo-cyberpunk sensib i l i ty, Remembrance Of Things Fast investigates some of the seed­ ier rest-stops along the information superhigh­

way. Award-winning Bri tish music video

director and artist John Maybury places Ti lda

Swinton, Rupert Everett and porn star Aiden

Brady in a hyper-real videoscape amid menac­ ing dominatrices and transgender aristocrats.

Disturbing, challenging, and at ti mes painfully

beautiful, Remembrance represents both the

culm ination of Maybury's work and the cut­ ting edge of video production today.

This is certainly not a film for people who

want simple story-tel l i ng pleasures. Swinton and Everett appear as you ' ve never seen them

rafted i n 1 967, Perry Watkins served 1 5

years i n the US Army a s a n openly gay man. He was di scharged in 1 982 under the

provisi ons that ban homosexuals from serv­ i ng in the Armed Forces. With the help of

the ACLU, Sgt. Wa tki ns won his case after ·

gay officer to defeat the ban aga inst gays i n

been embraced by the gay community?

Why has the bl ack com m u n i ty not celebrat­

Watkins h i mse l f, a charismatic figure, is on hand to set the record straight.

orld And Time Enough is the first Genera­ tion X gay comedy from America's heart­

land.

Mark (Matt Guidry), an HIV-positive artist, is

obsessed with building a cathedral in honor of his father. Joey (Gregory G. Gi les), his

boyfriend, is a garbage collector who brings

home favorite bits of junk to comfort himself

as he searches for his birth parents. Their lives

are very much like anyone else's: they flirt with

other people, mope about a lot, and enjoy the company of their gossipy friends.

First-time director Eric Mueller keeps this con­

temporary story buoyant with some delicate

performances, and a good eye for Minneapolis scenery. Although there are some serious

issues lurking behind the frames, Mueller puts

drama first. World And Time Enough is also reminiscent of Richard Glatzer's Grief, with

less out-loud laughs, more locations and a true

sense of the eccentricities of everyday life.

(Mueller says he was aim ing for the tone of his favorite Mary Ty ler Moore show, the one

where Mary breaks into laughter at Chuckles the Clown's funeral .)

World And Time Enough has two qualities

lacking in a lot of gay cinema nowadays: mod­

esty and charm.

We 're proud to present the

world premiere screening of a true original.

Plus Vacancy, a Gus Van Sant-style short about the comic difficulties of form ing long-term

relationships in a sma ll town li ke San

Francisco.

ay discos were a l l the rage in the late '70s and earl y '80s, but a special kind of magic permeated San Francisco's legendary Tro­ cadero Transfer. John Goss's Wrecked For Li fe interviews several h abi tues and employ­ ees from the Troc's glory days. There's a nos­ talgic tinge, and a sense of the cl ub's enduring spirit - one fellow carries h i s membersh ip card in his wal let to this day. The in terviewees regale the camera w i th tales of sex and drugs: They also describe the tremendous feel ing of community the Trocadero steen. engendered. "In those days the community wasn ' t so divided," waxes ' Di sco Connie' Norman. Goss has rounded up an engaging ensemble for this evocative soft-shoe through a memo­ rable moment in San Francisco gay history.

In 1 980 he teamed up with Derek Jarman, and their association resulted in more than a dozen award-winning fi lms. In addition, Mackay has collaborated with a number of other key gay di rectors, including Ron Peck and John Maybeck. Mackay will be in San Francisco to present three programs of rare, speci ally­ selected work, which ill ustrates the excite­ ment, . importance and unique aesthetic of independent British gay filmmakers.
