Welcome to the Festival

O n behalf of everyone at Frameline we welcome you to the 22nd San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival.

The first thing you'll notice about the 1998 Festival is that we've added an extra day of screenings. We open on Thursday,

June 18th, with all three Festival venues screening films on Friday, June 19th. These added screenings come in response to the overwhelming increase in attendance at the 1997 Festival - up 40% from 1996 to a record breaking 74,OOO! Other changes for '98 include improved sound at the landmark Victoria Theatre (made possible by a grant from the San Francisco Grants for the Arts Voluntary Arts Contribution Fund) and a more convenient Festival Ticket Outlet, located at the corner of Castro and Market, directly across from the Castro Theatre. In addition, responding to your requests, we've left more spaces open this year for repeats of popular programs. So make sure to check the Festival hotline at [415] 703-8663 for up to the minute information on these added screenings. The quality of the films .in this year's Festival is exceptional. We are very pleased to open the Festival with Lisa Cholodenko's stunning debut feature High Art, starring Ally Sheedy and Radha Mitchell, direct from the Cannes Film Festival. Cholodenko and Sheedy will be on hand for this exciting event along with Frameline Award winning producer Dolly Hall. And we've picked what we think is a perfect film to close the 1998 Festival, P. J. Castellaneta's Relax... lt's Just Sex, starring Jennifer (Bound) Tilly, Mitchell C'Party of Five") Anderson and Lori (Tank Girl) Petty, who will all be here to celebrate Lesbian and Gay Pride with you at the Castro Theatre on June 28. Between Art and Sex, the 1998 Festival has something for everyone. We're excited to offer a diverse array of films and videos by and about female-to-male transexuals, tranny boys, and butch-identified women. We also have a record number of works dealing with issues of being young and queer. You'll also want to check out our series on bisexuality and our selection of groundbreaking queer experimental films. As a Special Presentation, the Festival is proud to premiere Mohammed Camara's groundbreaking gay love story, Dakan, the first gay feature from West Africa. And Dakan is just one of 50 features and countless shorts from allover the world. So thumb through your program guide, get your tickets early and enjoy eleven days of non-stop queerness on screen!

This retrospective traces the evolution of Haring's art from his years as a student at Manhattan's School of Visual Arts until his death in 1990 at age 31. The larger-than-life works on display-some salvaged from New York's subways-quickly and directly communicate Haring's highly inspirational and socia-political messages. Above: Keith Haring,

Don't miss one of the biggest nights of the year as San Francisco enjoys the Opening Night Celebration of the 22nd San Francisco International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival! Join us on Thursday, June 18th, as audience members, guests, and filmmakers kick off San Francisco's Pride festivities with an evening of cocktails, hors d'CEuvres, and a fabulous film premiere. The evening begins at 6:30 pm with a champagne reception in the Castro Theatre and Festival Pavilion. At 8:00 pm, join director Lisa Cholodenko, producer Dolly Hall, and star Ally Sheedy for the premiere of High Art. After the screening, the festivities continue in the Pavilion with the 1998 Opening Night Gala, featuring sumptuous food, hosted bars, and the queer film glitterati of the world. cold blue apartment and the sensual, narcotic world Lucy and Greta represent, Syd's choice

a familiar twentysomething premise: Syd enjoys a loving if lackluster relationship with her boyfriend James and a budding if menial job at a prestigious New York City photography magazine. She's idealistic and naive, but also hard-working and ambitious: a typical new college graduate. Her life seems right on track. But when a crack in her ceiling springs a leak and Syd finds herself knocking on the door of her upstairs neighbor, a chance meeting suddenly takes Syd on a path she never expected.

and professionalism begin to blur. As they grow closer and closer, Lucy must confront the darker truths of her lifestyle and Syd must face the consequences of her hunger for recognition. Some filmmakers rely on hot-button issues to mask their weaknesses as artists. High Art doesn't need that crutch. Cholodenko is a gifted filmmaker who skillfully uses her chosen medium to tell a topical and vital story. The acting is subtle and nuanced (including beautiful performances from Ally Sheedy and Radha Mitchell as Lucy and Syd, and a tour de force from Patricia Clarkson as Greta), the production design clever and evocative, and the cinematography sensuous. High Art is a powerful trip into a darkly comic world, and it's an Opening Night you won't soon forget. High Art dir. Lisa Cholodenko 1998 USA 101 min. 35mm

The first West African feature film to deal with homosexuality, Da kan begins with the most sexually explicit opening scene in African cinema, Rather than showing a rural landscape or an urban panorama, locating the characters in a recognizable social context, the camera focuses instead on an isolated couple locked in a clandestine embrace in a sports car at night. The shot becomes even more transgressive when we realize the couple is two young men. When one of them later tells his mother he's attracted to another man, she replies, "Since time began, it's never happened. Boys don't do that. That's all there is to it." Dakan is the story of two men who, by coming out, disappear and become invisible to their families and society, because their society has no language which recognizes their love,

Anything That Moves At one time, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered moviegoers who wanted to see images of themselves had to be satisfied with su btext, i n n uendo, and stereotype. While explicitly gay a nd lesbian fi l ms have become com mon, we as bisexua ls sti l l find our­ selves havi ng to sift through stories, looking for bi faces a nd recogn iza bly bi storyli nes. This yea r at the Festiva l , however, bisexual characters can be found a l l over the place from O pening N ight to the return of the Bi Boys and B i G i rls short fi l m program. There a re no fewer tha n seven feature fi l ms in this yea r's Festival that feature prom i nent, if not leading, bi characters. High Art, our Open i ng N ight fi l m , is a wonderfu l exa m ple of sexual a m bigu ity in a ro mantic story. The ge nder of the love i nterest is i rrelevant i n the fi l m; when Syd sleeps with a woma n , her boyfriend is distu rbed beca use she cheated on him, not because she cheated on him with a woma n .

The truly u n iq u e story of Sixth Happiness centers on a yo ung disa bled Bom bay man whose pursuit of love a nd happi ness leads h i m to both men and wom e n .

In d i rector Zhang Yuan's fifth feature, a writer na med A-Lan is taken into police custody for engaging in homosexual activity in a Beij ing pa rk. In the spi rit of Jean Genet's tortuous, i m passioned yearnings, A-Lan i s strangely attracted to h is torm entor . During a routine interrogation, A-Lan vivi d ly and poeti ca l ly reco unts h i s i m poverished c h i l d h ood, h is first love , and va rious men from h is past.

A kerma n's Jeanne D i e l ma n covers

th ree days in the terrifyi ngly ritua l ized l ife of a bou rgeois widow who d oes household work, ta kes care of her teen age son , and is a part­ time prostitute. Akerm a n 's fi l m seeks to s how the " i mages between the i m ages , " so don't expect m uch of what fi l mgoers trad ition a l ly identify as action . Jea n ne performs the acts of cooking, clea n i ng, a n d i ntercou rse with the same stoic effi ciency. B ut don't be put off by the ba n a l ity of making coffee, washing d is hes, ta k i ng a bath, and wa iting.

Fresh Blood is a hybrid personal essay/docu­ mentary in which the fi lmm a ker tries to exam i ne the comp lexities a n d pleas u res of her I raqi­ J ewish heritage . R etu rning to Israe l , the land of her birth , she is ove rcome by the i m pl icati ons of her m ixed ide ntity, her lesbian d es i res, and the loss of her m other tongue.
