Friday June 23 8:00 pm Roxie $7 Mem/$8 Gen (ClVIL23) Mixing interviews and historical reenact­

tary Apostles of Civilised Vice traces queer his­

tory in South Africa from colonial times to t h e

1910

and 1 933, one esti­

mate says that over 60,000 men were convict­

ed of sodomy and "unnatural offences" by

laws that were only dropped from t h e books

in

1 998. T h e majority of those tried, convicted,

and imprisoned were black men unable to afford legal representation. Looking at t h e

law's larger implications, Achmat doesn't lose

sig h t of t h e individual stories that it manifest­ ed: From t h e nineteenth century, th ere is t h e

story o f Dr. James Barry w h o was accused of multiple counts of sodomy and whose death

revealed a shocking fact - t h at he was a woman. In

1 902

a white confectioner and a

black cook were caught by police and jai l ed

for sodomy. And a notorious gang of criminals prided t h emselves on t h eir same sex relation­

sh ips, both in and out of prison.

Apostles of Civilised Vice makes hidden

que er histories visible and gives voice to gays

and lesbians silenced by colonial rule and aparth eid laws, which criminalized and mar­ ginalized same sex desire.

Queer TV didn't begin with Ellen or Will &

Grace. According to que e r media expert Marusya

Bociurkiw, que erness

h as

been

vibrating between t h e scan lines o f t h e small

� creen ever since television began!

From girl­

I s h fetish attire on t h e U . K.'s mod Avengers to

t h e intersection of race, class, and same-sex

kissing on Roseanne and Ellen, this entertain­

ing hour-long clip show and narration exam­

ines identity politics and t h e various disguis­

es of lesbian and gay TV stars. With over two

dozen TV and film clips from Canadian

American, and British television and cinem

- from shows such as Bewitched, A n n e o f

Green Gables, I Love Lucy, and Portrait of a

Marriage and including clips of Lea D e Laria

and kd lang - this presentation never fails to shock and titillate queer audiences. It will take

you on an entertaining romp through t h e les­

bian lavender channels of TV history, with lots

of laughs, gossip, and innuendo and a smat­

tering of t h eory along t h e way. Did you know

about rumors of lesbian love between Lucy

and Eth el or that Diana Rigg's secret identity

was no secret to British viewers? Come and

find out even more about big dykes on t h e small screen.

- Charlotte Gutierrez

A politician, h is junkie wife, a full-figured fash ­

ion designer, a ruthless television news corre­

spondent, t hree hunky gay astronomers, and

a ship full of scantily clad aliens collide in this campy

Greek

drag

UFO

musical . W h ile

b � zzing about At h ens in t h eir spaceship,

d l tzy aliens transport one of th eir comrades

to t h e surface, unexpectedly melding h er cells with those of a discarded piece of mous­ s� ka. T h e moussaka grows to colossal propor­

t i ons and begins a murderous rampage

t h roug h t h e city streets. Television crews

spring into action with investigative reporter Evi Bei in t h e lead. Portly fashion designer Tara

risks h er life, zipping to t h e Center for Cosmic Research on her motor scooter to report t h e

U FO. T h ere she meets and falls for t h e hand­

some director Alexis, who escorts h er home

and spends the nigh t. Meanwhile, seeing t h e

creature a s a th reat to his re election bid, t h e

minister of t h e environment decides to bomb

it. In classic B-movie fashion, all is well in t h e

end, but before t h e malevolent moussaka can

be returned to its harmless state, a number of

people will die, a lucky few will fall in love, and t h e world will almost come to an end.

Hilarity ensues with this wacky collection of

comic shorts. You'll b u rst with laughter as a

tru e fem m e realizes she m u st pose as a b u tch

to win the fe mme of her dreams; as secret

agents and synchronized swi m m ers j O in . forces to battle evil; as a ne urotic housewife goes mad; and as you take in an e m bittered

little rant on the fetishizing of dyke m o m s and their kids.

With a grant from the Tzabaco/ Frameline Film & Video Completion Fund Barbara Hammer's HISTORY LESSONS was able to premiere at this year's Festival. Established nine years ago to assist filmmakers in the final stages of production, the Film & Video Completion Fund has supported more than 65 productions with vital resources to help queer filmmakers bring their vision and artistry to audiences around the world. With the support of the Gay and Lesbian Fund for the Redwood Empire at the Horizons Foundation, the San Francisco Cultural Equity Grants Program of the San Francisco Arts Commission, and generous donations from the members of F rameline, we have awar ded over $10.000 to support even more works that will keep movie and television screens across the country illuminated with images from our community. Look for these 1999 Completion Fund supported works in this year's Festival: A BOY NAMED SUE THE CONFESSION DESrS LOOKING FOR A NEW GIRL HAMMERING IT OUT: WOMEN IN THE CONSTRUCTION ZONE HISTORY LESSONS A LITTLE FIERCE NUYORICAN DREAM For guidelines and an application, or to donate to the Tzabaco / Frameline Film & Video Completion Fund. contact Frameline at 41 5/703-86'50 or online at www.frameline.org. 2 4- H o u r
