In January, Frameline was shaken' by the tragic loss of our beloved colleague Mark Finch, who served as Artistic Director of this Festival for the last three years. As a film critic, writer and curator, Mark was a seminal figure in the current explosion of lesbian and gay media arts. We miss him greatly both as a colleague and a mentor, but

of his work endures in this Festival, and will live on in all the rest to come.

To honor his brilliance and vision, Frameline dedicates this, the 19th San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay

Film Festival, to Mark Finch.


The success we've enjoyed in the investment business comes from

bringing talented people from unique an d diverse communities -

together to accomplish shared goals.

And after all the hard work, lofty goals and the challenging pace,

we' all deserve a break.

That's why Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. is proud to sponsor

the 19th San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival. Enjoy the show.

hat better way to kick off the Festival than with one of the most charming romantic comedies to

come around in a long time. The

Incredibly True Adventure Of Two Girls In Love, Maria Maggenti's debut feature film, tells the touching and comic story of frrst love between two girls in their senior year of high school. From the wrong side of the tracks, cute and out tomboy Randy (Laurel Hollomon) lives with her two lesbian aunts and works after school as a gas station attendant. Middle class Evie (Nicole Parker) is the prettiest, smartest and most popular girl at school. C ?nvinced there is something wrong WIth her posh Range Rover, Evie stops by the gas station one day. Instantly taken with one another, the two girls �mbark on a friendship which develops mto a tender but hilarious romance. When Evie's mother leaves on a week­ end business trip, the two girls decide to celebrate their new fourid love in

Evie's mansion-like house. This results in a series of comic misadventures in which everyone becomes involved including the jealous husband of Randy's former fling. Maggenti, an ACT UP activist and Testing the Limits documentary produc­ er, states that the film is loosely based on her own experience of frrst love. Sure to be a big hit when it gets its release from Fine Line Features this summer, Incredibly True Adventure is a must-see for anyone who can still recall the thrill of their first romance. See it here first!

Vou've been asking us for year's why we don't I show women's and men's shorts together. Well we decided that it was about time and we are pre­ senting three very charming shorts for everyone to enjoy. Here you'll find the sexes happily working together to solve their diverse and not so pre­ dictable problems. First-time filmmaker Garth Christenson's The Anniversary is a romantic comedy that will charm your socks off. Set in a typical Manhattan apart­ ment building, two couples get their anniversary dates mixed and tensions build. As their spouses prepare fabulous meals, the nosy new neighbor Nancy is trying to be friendly, but only adds to the confusion. The Conception brings together a pregnant straight teen, a gay man with relationship problems and a lesbian couple desperately trying to get pregnant. This determined couple tries everything including adoption, procreation, bribery and immaculate con­ ception. None of these options seem to work until they get a little help from a friend.

Margaret Hetherman's award winning film Forms &

Motifs is inspired by Kalman Egyed's collection of exquisite beadwork and embroidery designs. A

young woman, CeCe, is not satisfioo with the direction her life is taking when she discovers her grandfather's portfolio of designs. She decides that these exquisite patterns need to come to life

and enlists the help of her surrogate family, 3 lively drag queens. Their goal to "create a most glamorous piece!" becomes a reality, but can they make it on to the runway? All the designs in this delightful film were authentically revived.

both sit by the phone trying to muster the courage up to call. Finally, Montseratt asks Anna to go to the Costa Brava (Brave Coast) with her and it is here in this wildly romantic setting that they first tentatively embrace and fall in love. Described as the "Catalonian Woody Allen," Bal­ letbO-Coll's has directed an innovative film that takes comedy to a new level of sophistication.

The Cyber£xpo,

playing on the conventions of the multimedia Expo or World's Fair, is a high-end "product fair" that explores the marketability and commercialization of queer multimedia, and suggests ways in which queer aesthetics might inform approaches to information, entertainment, products, and services.

ZtiLoft environment design is by Amy Berk, Renee Rivera and Carrie Cronenwett, and includes a live sound installation by Angela Williams; black light painting by Zanne; and a collage of video, text and slide projections created by the ZtiLoftian team.

Since the vast majority of queers do not have access to the latest, expensive stateof-the-art technology, artists often work with what they can get their hands on. Innovative "experiments" on limited budgets and limited access are celebrated in this exhibit - for the radical ways that they re-envision the cultural landscape.

this powerfully erotic reexamination of what dri­ ves us to seek emotional and sexual solace in ill­ fated relationships. The characters are Henry, a twe.nty-something Asian-Canadian hustler; Brian, a"middle-aged business man; Sylvie, a Quebecoise maid; Gabriel, a political refugee from Latin America; Norman, an immigration lawyer; Sarah, his Venezuelan wife; Angelo, a sexually preco­ cious gay teenager; Michael, a self-absorbed artist; Jim, a contemplative actor; and Carlotta, a relentless party girl.

his youth wields over the older men he seeks out. But when he sees his. image captured and bottled by Michael he realizes the precariousness of his advantage. For Henry, sex is just a job and he puts up with Brian who finds sexual gratification in hustlers and his maid Sylvie. The cynical Sylvie is empowered by the sexual acts she per­ forms with her employer. Sarah, must face her past and question her current life when she meets Gabriel. Michael and Jim are still facing the demons born of their broken relationship.

Nominated for three Emmy Awards, Electric City has highlighted AIDS activism, club scene, court system, police riots, drag queens, dyke daddies, sex workers, street fairs, parades, protests, performers, poets, the quotables and the notables, not to mention the unmentionables. Red Hot & Bruised is a kaleido­

scope of amazing footage, fierce music and his­ toric photographs from Electric City; with help

from Bill Longen, Chuck Roseberry and some of the city's best photographers. Uncut and uncensored, Red Hot & Bruised

reviews history through the eyes and ears of a queer activist camera crew who were at the right place, at the right time rt<cording everything from Coronations, and police brutality. Electric City was arrested in Sacramento for "conspiracy to film a demonstration" and were attacked by San Francisco's finest while taping the October 6,

e are very excited to be presenting a new doc­ umentary from the makers of Forbidden Love. Aerlyn Weissman and Lynne Fernie have once again created an insightful and entertaining film that delves into lesbian history this time examin­ ing the life of famous lesbian novelist and activist, Jane Rule. Interviews with and about Rule are interwieved with dramatic evocations of her writ­ ing. Her first published novel The Desert of the Heart sent shock waves through the literary com­ munity, but never-the-Iess went on to become a best-seller and highly successful film which remains a favorite among lesbian audiences. A committed political activist and intellectual, Jane Rule found herself fleeing, with her life-long com­ panion Helen Sonthoff, the rabid McCarthyism of the US in the 50's. Settling in Canada, she contin­ ues to foster public awareness and debate around issues of sexuality, representation and censorship. Whether a fan of her writing or Desert Hearts the film, Weissman and Fernie's film is a wonderful opportunity to meet one of the most important les­ bians of our time. From Freaky Friday to Nell, Jodie Foster has been one of the most versatile actresses of her _ generation. As a tomboy role model, as a bud­ ding adolescent, and as one of the strongest women actresses of the 80s she's also one of our hottest heart-throbs. Featuring some of the bright­ est highlights of her distinguished career, this compilation of coming attractions serves up a trailer tribute to one of the biggest screen heroes of the 90s.

A C O M M U N IT Y EVENT

The Festival is designed as a celebration of our community. We invite everyone to enjoy this year' s excit�ng range of lesbian and gay film and video. We are especially committed to assisting audience members with special needs. We offer pre-seating for people with disabilities: please make yourself known to the house manager at each venue. We also ask all moviegoers to please refrain from wearing perfume and other scented products so that those with environmental illnesses may attend.

Read this page before ordering fttstival tickets

U

se the program grid on the following page to make your program choices, and circle the BASS code next to the pro­ gram you want to see. You must order your tickets by these codes when you call or visit one of the BASS ticket centers, or when you visit the Members VIP Ticket Office. Please have these codes written down to expedite your order ! Tickets for some Festival pro­ grams sell out very quickly. With 150 BASS ticket centers across the Bay Area, everyone has an equal chance of obtaining tickets. We recommend that you place your order right away! DAY-OF-S HOW SALES

BASS will stop selling advance tickets on the previous day-of-show. To get same-day advance tickets, you must visit the venue box office. Each venue box office will open about 30 minutes before the first show of the day. This means that, for a program on June 1 2 at 9:00pm at the Castro, you may buy a ticket from 1 1 :30am because the first screening that day is at noon. Of course, if a program is already sold out, there will be no advance day-of-show tickets ayailable.

SOLD O U T?

When a screening is advertised as "sold out" at the advance ticket centers, we usually still have a number of tickets for sale at the door. This is because we have to hold back a cer­ tain number of seats for pass-holders. Once we determine how many pass-holders did not tum up, we can then release these seats for sale.

All theatres are wheelchair accessible, although the Victoria Theatre does not have a special wheelchair viewing area. T H EATRE A D D R ESSES & V E N U E C O D ES Castro Theatre (CAS)

In our past experience, this usually means that there are about 50 - 1 00 tickets avail­ able at the Castro Theatre just before the screening starts. (The number of last-minute seats available at other venues varies.) These are released about 15 minutes before the screening starts. We recommend that you arrive early to be in line for any available tickets for "sold out " shows. Please remember, though, we offer no guarantee of available seats. R EF U N D S AND S C H ED U L E C H A N G ES

Sometimes, for reasons beyond our control, programs must be changed, rescheduled or canceled. We only offer refunds if a pro­ gram is canceled. If a program is canceled, please return tickets to the ticket center where you bought them, and a full r�fund '(including any convenience charge) will be issued promptly.

What Is Frameline rameline is the nation's· only comprehensive Fnon-profit organization dedicated to the

exhibition, distribution, promotion and fund­ ing of lesbian and gay film and video. The San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival is Frameline's signature event. For nineteen years we've been bring­ ing new and rare works to a Bay Area audi­ ence; our 1 994 audience numbered over 55,000 . Our ambition is to showcase the best and most diverse work by or about lesbians and gay men.

, In addition to the Festiv� FrameIi1e also presents: FILM & V I D EO DISTRI BUTION

Frameline Distribution brings over 140 les­ bian and gay films and videos to television, theatres, colleges, libraries and community groups across the country. Our ever-growing collection represents the variety, excellence, innovation and importance of lesbian and gay work today. Titles include Gus Van 'Sant's first film Mala Noche, Marlon Riggs' Tongues Untied, and Last Call At Maud's, Paris Poirier's history of lesbian bar culture. H O M E V I D EO

Now for the first time ever, you can create a lesbian and gay film festival in your own home. In 1 994 we launched Frameline's Lesbian & Gay Cinema Collection on home video . . Titles include Together Alone, Extramuros, Tongues Untied and Voices From The Front. To be placed on our mailing list, please call (4 1 5) 703-8659, or ask the volunteers at the Castro Theatre Membership Table for more information. FILM & VI DEO COM PLETION FU ND

Frameline's annual fund for film and video­ makers is designed to help bring lesbian and gay work to the screen. Through the Completion Fund, we provided grants to a number of films featured in this year's Festival. Completion Fund guidelines are available by mid-July each year, and the deadline is mid-October. For more informa­ tion, call (4 1 5) 703-8658 . RESOU RCE SERVICES

Frameline's Archive & Resource Center is another way in which we continue to provide

access to our cinematic history. The center contains both archival and current materials - films, videos, stills, posters, catalogs and clippings - on lesbian and gay film and video, from the 1 930s to the present day. Our Archive & Resource Center is currently pro­ vided as a service to programmers, writers, students and researchers all over the world. LES BIAN & GAY FI LM CLASS

I

As part of its outreach mission, Frameline hias provided support to City College of San Francisco's Film 120C and 1 200 lesbian and gay film classes since their inception in 1 988. Taught by Frameline's Education Consultant (and local film critic) Daniel Mangin, the two courses track representations of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and the transgendered through an eclectic cross-section of queer cinema his­ tory . Class guest speakers have included Gregg Araki, Kate Bomstein, Marlon Riggs, Barbara Hammer, Marcus Hu and Aarin Burch. The Fall 1 995 semester of Film 1 200, which covers post-Stonewall fllm and video, begins August 23 and 24. Separate sections of the class are held Wednesday and Thursday evenings 6:30-9:30 at Everett Middle School, at 17th and Church. A daytime class is held on Wednesday afternoons at 2:00 at City College's main campus (Cloud Hall, room 247). You may enroll at the first class, or call for more information: (4 1 5) 668-0767. New!

Ever want to speak directly to a film or video maker but were too shy to shout your que.s­ tions at the Castro Theatre? The Harvey Milk Institute will be offering an intimate seminar that provides the opportunity to discuss the Festival with fellow students, directors, tale�ts and others.

*Note: Total class fee of $ 1 70 includes Castro Festival Pass (Frame line members may pur­ chase directly from Frameline); and tickets to select Victoria Theater screenings Two hour sessions June 6 (orientation and film selec­ tion) and June 20 (wrap -up discussion).

A

drag perfonner (Ian Williams) dies of AIDS but returns to settle some unfinished business with his butch ex-lover (Thomas Addie) in this sweet � comedy about love, com­ virgin atlaqtic " mitment and remembrance. As the film begins, Mark's health is starting to fade and handsome Simon, typical of their rela­ tionship, is doing his best to ignore reality. Prac­ ticing a different fonn of denial is their ditzy upstairs neighbor Siobban (Dillie Keane), who's just found politics via an incongruous affair with the well-meaning but humorless Terry (Tony Slat­ tery) - true love is amusingly elusive for every­ one in this movie.

Much to Mark's chagrin, he and Simon have an open relationship - Mark spends his last evenings working on his quilt panel while Simon hits the town. But when Mark enters the spirit world, he finds he has a lot more control over Simon's extracurricular activities than he did while alive. Mark's endless pranks finally get Simon to face some long-submerged feelings. There's a smidge of several old favorites - most obviously Ghost, Blithe Spirit, and Truly, Madly, Deeply - in Peter Mackenzie Litten's feature, which ends with the most satisfying expression of wish fulfillment related to the consequences of AIDS since the closing scene of Longtime Companion.

ased on the book The Traps of Faith by Nobel Prize-Winning Octavio Paz, Maria Luisa Bem­ berg's exquisite film tells the remarkable story of 1 7th-century Mexican poet Sister Juana Ines de la Cruz (Assumpta Serna), one of the greatest poets of the spanish language. Born with an intense passion to write and possessing an incredible intellect, Juana enters the convent in order to avoid marriage and continue her writing. As the Inquisition rages around her and the politics of the church become more and more repressive, Juana begins to attract much attention for her free think­ ing controversial plays and poems. A new and liberal thinking viceroy takes power and his beautiful, educated wife, Maria (Dominique Sanda) takes an interest in Juana. The two are immediately taken with each other and begin an intimate relationship that is at first intellectual, but soon becomes much more. Juana begins to write many tortured love poems to Maria that amuse her husband, but anger the woman-hating archbishop. Maria uses her hus­ • band's power and influence to pro­ tect Juana, but the viceroy is eventu­ LI N ally sent back to Spain with his wife and Juana is left alone to battle against the Machi' avalian plots of the Catholic church.

explains to Val the ritual Chris has devised. Chris performs a "dance" in his bed - he asks Val , a

photographer, to document it - then the death scenario, which culminates in two lethal injec­ tions, is set into motion. Though The Last Supper takes place in a single approximation of real time, director Cynthia Roberts's nicely conceived camera movements and Rembrandt-like lighting maintain visual inter­ est. McDougall, who died shortly after filming, is particularly strong as the ailing Chris, who steers his lover (and himself) through a traumatic moment with grace and thoroughly appropriate touches of gloomy wit. In death Chris proves not only how much he loves Val , but life itself. The Last Supper won the "Gay Teddy Bear" audi­ ence award for best feature at the

Ilias (Stavros Zalmas), a bored and blase 35-year­ old Athenian, falls in love with Panagiotis (Pana­ giotis Tsetsos), a muscular, 1 8-year-old economic refugee from Albania. These two have nothing in common, sexually or otherwise, but that doesn't stop them from embarking on a emotionally lop­ sided, ill-fated relationship. Giannaris ' s Genet-tinged narrative, related as much through carefully wrought imagery as dia­ logue, is heavy on atmosphere and the palpable sensation of desire. Taken literally, A Place in the Sun's scenario is a queer activist's horror - the beautiful Panagiotis isn't above bilking and bash­ ing gays, and Ilias willingly becomes an accessory after the fact to a capital crime - though any one who's ever t.be ----' been caught up in passion's wild '--throes is likely to empathize with Ilias's romantic and moral dilemmas.

Julian moves in and seduces Hal's broken heart with his Calvin Klein good looks and Grandma's chicken soup, while stealing money and turning tricks in Hal's big beautiful Victorian bed. In this artfully shot short film full of shady comebacks and dra­ matic profiles, everyone looks good in their under­ wear and thinks everyone else is a whore. Amus­ ingly melancholy, Some Of These Days is what we all imagine our break-ups and make-ups would be if thrown up on the big screen.

Pratibha Parmar's first narrative film is the story of Shanti, a streetwise East End girl, who is regu­ larly harassed by local National Front boys until one evening when the mysterious "Memsahib Rita" appears. Memsahib Rita, is an elusive mother figure who brings together the best aspects of an Asian movie star and a Hollywood femme fatale. She comes to Shanti's defense on the anniversary her mother's death. These Shoes Weren't Made For Walking is a beautiful new documentary from Paul Lee. Here he pays tribute to four generations of women in his family. He explores their lives, the changing roles of women in Chinese society (including one cross-dressing butch dyke aunt), and their chang­ ing shoes.

This ruins her and journalist pal Greg's plans to break into the mainstream press by writing a cover story on lesbians and love on the ice at the Gay Games in New York.
