Dear Friends, On behalf of Frameline's Board of Directors and staff, we are extremely proud to welcome you to our signature event, the San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival. T hrough the years, Frameline has discovered and delivered remarkable films and experiences that are, for many of us, the signposts of our

lives, marking life-changing events of personal discovery, social change and political action. Frameline's Film Festival, year-round exhibition events, distribution and filmmaker support programs

o ::I .

reach out across the country and around the world. Today, Frameline films touch the lives of people of all ages at film festivals and in university classrooms and libraries in more than forty states, including Alabama, Tennessee, Montana, Georgia, Missouri, Illinois, Florida and Texas. Internationally, our films are reaching audiences in some 26 countries, such as Poland, Argentina, Korea, Hungary, Ireland and the Czech Republic. Standing on the shoulders of those who came before - filmmakers and activists, rebels and revolutionaries - we are afforded a clear and inspiring view of the years to come. Frameline has always represented voices that have been silenced, ignored or discounted. We will continue to expand this commitment with innovative programs and a dedication to showcasing the wonderful diversity of our community. Simply put, we must challenge, transcend, represent, deliver, dare, score and sizzle! And with your enduring support and participation, we will do just that. We extend our heartfelt thanks to our donors, members, volunteers, corporate partners and foundation funders for 31 years of generosity and encouragement. Together we have built a truly vibrant and unique LGBT film community, and the world is a better place for it.

With warm regards,

After a year of viewing over 600 films from 29 countries, we take great pride in welcoming you to Frameline31. We are extremely honored to launch our fourth decade of showcasing the best in LGBT cinema with the North American premiere of The Witnesses (Les Temoins), the latest masterpiece from director Andre Techine. A film about friendship, sex and love amid the early days of the AIDS crisis in France, The Witnesses is a hopeful and wise drama that sets the stage for 11 days of cinematic discovery at Frameline31.

Israeli director Eytan Fox returns to the Film Festival with this year's Centerpiece film, The Bubble, a modern, queer Romeo and Juliet set in Tel Aviv, that finds a pair of gay lovers - one Israeli, the other Palestinian - coming face­ to-face with the harsh realities that have fueled their attraction yet also conspire to drive them apart.. This year's Film Festival presents a record number of world premieres, beginning with here! Films' Shelter, the first project from the network's new independent film initiative. Frameline's audiences will also be the first to see Gifted and Challenged: The Making of Shortbus, a behind-the-scenes peek at the creation of John Cameron Mitchell's extraordinary film, and Through Thick and Thin, the first feature-length documentary about the struggles faced by same-sex, bi-national couples. Great things continue to come in small packages, and short films have always been a large part of the Festival. With online video viewing increasing by leaps and bounds, queer filmmakers are churning out more and more short-form productions. Frameline continues to bring what are often some of the best small films to the big screen with 155 shorts screening across twenty programs, from the perennial favorites Fun in Girls' Shorts and Fun in Boys' Shorts to the sci-fi fantasy program OUTer Limits and Bi Request, a specially curated program of shorts about bisexuality. Many of these shorts will be released internationally by Frameline Distribution, which has a record number of films in this year's Festival. . We'll end with a big bang on Closing Night with the premiere of Jamie Babbit's Itty Bitty Titty Committee. The direc­ tor of Frameline24's Closing Night Film But I'm a Cheerleader returns to the Castro Theatre with this revolutionary film about the transformation of a young girl into a proud activist. We will also be honoring producer Andrea Sperling with the 2007 Frameline Award at the Castro Theatre on Closing Night. Sperling has produced more than 17 feature films, including Itty Bitty Titty Committee and But I'm a Cheerleader, as well as D.E.B.S., Prozac Nation and the very first films from previous Frameline Award winner Gregg Araki. From radical feminism and the Middle East conflict to surfing the waves and exposing the religious right, the films that make up Frameline31 clearly demonstrate the power, diversity and humanity of our collective communities. Enjoy Frameline31!

Bill Dickey Wells Fargo Bank Lead Financial Partner EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS' CIRCLE $25,000 TO $99,999

In 2005, Frameline embarked on an ambitious campaign to change the world, one movie at a time. Thanks to your exceptional support, Frameline is changing hearts and minds across the country, branching out into innovative new areas, reaching new and diverse audiences and influencing the way the world perceives and understands the LGBT community. Your commitment to the Campaign has helped Frameline keep audiences engaged and ahead of the cinematic curve all year long by presenting exclusive sneak previews and premieres and Frameline at The Center,

our wildly popular free-admission film series, now in its third season.

Thanks in large part to Campaign donations, Frameline Distribution is delivering more cutting edge LGBT film and video to metropolitan cities, small towns and rural areas throughout the US and abroad. Today, Frameline films are seen by audiences numbering in the hundreds of thousands on cable TV, in colleges and universities, online and in living rooms through our home DVD line. And the Campaign is helping us sustain our commitment to emerging LGBT filmmakers. In 2006, the Frameline Film and Video Completion Fund

awarded $40,000 in grants to LGBT filmmakers, an

increase of $10,000 from the previous year. Your generosity was instrumental in allowing us to expand our filmmaker workshop series. The Wells Fargo/Frameline Generations Film Workshop: Youth and Elders Making Movies Together empowers LGBT youth and elders to use media to tell the truth about their lives, providing them with the skills to change negative stereotypes and an outlet to share their unique vision with the world.

Mike was born in Lakewood, Ohio but spent his formative years in Brooklyn, New York. A math wunderkind, he excelled academically, earning a PhD in mathematics, then became a teacher and eventually a leading software ·architect. He loved movies - and LGBT film in particular-and discovered Frameline's International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival in tbe early '80s, where one of the earliest films he remembered seeing was Fun with a Sausage. In Mike's Blog (www.bloggermike.com). a movie review web log, he dissected films with his dry wit and critical insight. Through a generous donation to Frameline's Changing the World, One Movie at a Time Campaign by his partner, Bill Dickey, Mike's legacy lives on with the Michael J. Berg Documentary Award. As you enjoy this year's collection of documentaries, remember Mike and his passion for telling our story, one movie at a time.

Paris, 1984. In a cruisey city park, Adrien, a sophisticated, middle-aged doctor, meets Manu, a buoyant 18-year-old. Manu turns down Adrien's proposition -then asks him to hold his jacket while he joins an orgy in the bushes. Not the best way to start a relationship, yet Adrien takes Manu under his wing. Manu needs guidance, and Adrien comes alive as he tromps around Paris with this energetic newcomer. Adrien's friend Sarah worries that he's being taken advantage of, but Adrien disagrees: "You can ask anything of your friends." The possibilities of friendship are at the heart of this elegant new film from Andre Techine, whose 1994 Wild Reeds is already a classic. Once again, the French auteur demonstrates the complexity of desire - plus his knack for casting sexy, intense young French actors. In lesser hands, the May/December dynamic would slip into heartbreak and stop there, but Techine raises the stakes as The Witnesses becomes a story of relationships tested by the onslaught of AIDS. Like a cinematic string quartet, the film intertwines four fascinating lives. Carefree Manu turns dangerous under pressure. Adrien, a doormat in love, becomes a medical warrior fighting the deadly new virus. Sarah struggles to balance motherhood with artistry, while her macho Algerian husband falls into his first gay affair. The Witnesses takes us through a tumultuous year asking us to bear witness to the lives it portrays. -ICM. SOEHNLEIN THE WITNESSES

orga nizing anti-occupation raves. Noam's world is rocked when he meets Ashraf, a soulful Palestinian who crosses through the checkpoint one day, then turns up again on the gay party scene in Tel Aviv. Noam and Ashraf hook up, and soon Noam is arm-twisting his roommates into accepting Ashraf as a new member of the household. The passionate affa i r flourishes in this "bubble" of li beral sentiment, but the world can only be held at bay for so long, as political and family pressures force Ashraf into cat­ aclysmic decisions that threaten the love he's found with Noam. Ultimately, each character comes faceAo-face with the harsh realities that have fueled their attraction yet also conspire to drive them apart. Stern and unflinching in its mapping of battle li nes, The Bubble passionately celebrates the love that brings Noam and Ashraf together, despite the legacy of conflictthey've inherited.

Anna is coming out. But not as gay - as a revolutionary. Iffy Biffy Tiffy Commit­ tee is a rockiri' love song to the heady rush of sex, freedom and rebellion that happens when an everyday girl discovers her own strength and the righteous indignation needed to take action and change the world. Our heroine is a shy, just-out-of-high-school lesbian, still living with her parents and working at a plastic surgery clinic. She is depressed because of a recent breakup but lives in a su per-loving, gay-is-A-OK kind of fam i ly. Her world opens up one night when she catches a one-woman army reclaiming public space for women (Le., spray painting the clinic where Anna works). A recruiting member of the guerrilla girls-esque Clits in Action (C(i)A) , Sadie is trying to make people aware of how bad plastic surgery is for women. With an undeniable attraction to this sexy, raw rebel gurl, Anna eagerly joins the ranks of C(i)A and starts her rollercoaster ride from meek and mousy to bad-ass bravado. Full of mosh pits, power fists and utter charm, Jamie Babbit's (But I'm a Cheerleader, Frameli ne24) late�t film is as fun as a romantic comedy can get. Featuring Melonie Diaz (Raising Victor Va rgas) , Nicole Vici us (Half Nelson) and Daniela Sea ("The L Word"), Iffy Biffy Tiffy Committee captures all the excitement of a Le Tigre, Gossip or Bikini Kill show with its adrenaline-fueled feminism, shirtless bravado and enough queer sex to give you one of the best dykey date movies ever. So sit back, enjoy, and then cha nge the fucking world!

as she visits a plastic surgeon who discusses her future vagina. We're with her at her therapy appointments (a requirement for sex-reassignment su rgery, which Alexis vocally resents). We follow her shopping and clubbing. All the while, friends and enemies, from drag queens Jackie Beat and Candy Ass to an US Weekly editor, offer colorful commentary. But midway through, the fi lm takes some unexpected curves: Phone messages from Alexis chastise the filmmakers for intruding into her private life, and she annou nces she doesn't want to be fi lmed. Some onlookers suggest that she's never going to go through with the surgery and that it's all just a publicity stunt. No longer focusing on the techni足 cal details of surgery, the documentary allows a portrait to emerge of a charismatic, intell igent, fiercely individ ual person who's grappl ing with her gender identity in the glare of the celebrity spotlight.

appointments, thrills and dreams. Glue introduces us to three young friends experiencing this trance of youth together. Fifteen-year-old Lucas is a small-town Argentine boy. Growing up in a tempestuous environment with a cheating father and a weak-willed mother, Lucas sets his sights beyond these disappointing adult realities and fills his time hanging out with his friend Nacho, blissing out to alternative music and singing in a garage band (with Nacho on drums). In secret, he also observes his body and his burgeoning sexual desires with wide-eyed wonder. When Nacho and Lucas befriend local girl Andrea, the three disaffected teens hit it off, and their inner lives and fantasies intertwine like a serpentine dance. Dos Santos captures the quivering mass of angst and excitement that makes up a typical teenager's day, in which attention can be suddenly riveted and just as quickly led astray by any attraction, thought or rock anthem. Super-8 solo sequences of each character evoke inner moments, while their ultimate sexual explorations are achieved with a tenderness and humor that suggest a similar dream state. Sun-drenched cinematography and a great soundtrack (including great dollops of Violent Femmes) round out this strong debut feature. GLUE

The insults fly, nothing goes unspoken, and the ugly, bitter truth about domestic bliss never looked so cute.

Kirsten and her grumpy wife Dana have cohabitated for three long, drama-filled but satisfying years.

His bedroom is his oasis-he draws on the walls, in his notebook, in sketches piled up on the floor. But he's squashed his dream of attending Cal Arts in order to help his sister, Jeannie, raise her five-year-old son. Enter Shaun, the gay older brother of Zach's best friend and a writer taking a break from Hollywood to recover from a bad relationship. Zach and Shaun start hanging out, surfing and drinking too much beer, much to Jeannie's concern. "You're not a fag," she tells Zach. Wishful thinking!

A sensitive performance by handsome newcomer Trevor Wright anchors the classic story of a young man forced by responsibility to grow up fast -with strong support from Tina Holmes ("Six Feet Under") and Brad Rowe (Billy 's Hollywood Screen Kiss). With a pitch-perfect emo soundtrack and plenty of guys in wetsuits riding waves under gorgeous sunsets, Shelter is a sensory treat.

Probing his father for answers, he discovers the story of a scurrilous ancestor who emigrated to Switzerland from Poland. It's as if Lionel needed to dig up the roots of the family tree just to be convinced his life had any drama. Suddenly he's immersing himself in all things Polish: food, language, etc. But things really heat up when he meets a pretty Polish immigrant facing deportation and decides to marry her, overturning his domestic harmony for a principle. A loopy road trip to Poland ensues, with Lionel's social worker sister Lucy in tow.

With the help of his father and an old flame, Adam takes matters into his own hands as he attempts to un­ cover a complex mystery that has a whole nation tuned in.

Black White + Gray examines the symbiotic relationship between influential curator and collector Sam Wagstaff and photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in New York during the heady years of the '70s and '80s. The film peers intensively into Mapplethorpe's love affa ir with Wagstaff and his rapid ascendancy in the art world with Wagstaff's forceful patronage and guidance. At the time their romance began, Mapplethorpe was 26 years old -25 years younger than Wagstaff -though they shared the same birth date (November 4), an uncanny charac­ teristic of this duo of near polar opposites. The film explores the strong bond of friendship both men had with punk rocker Patti Smith during this period, which was also marked by Smith's 1975 debut album "Horses," her first recording triumph. While Smith and Mapplethorpe edged towa rd notori ety and i nfa my, Wagstaff's story is one of personal transformation-from conservative, starchy, Yale-educated preppy to down­ town habitue, hipster and experimenter. Wagstaff and Mapplethorpe enabled one another to discover different parts of themselves, each encou rag­ ing the other to mine new territory in the arts -and in their personal lives. Wagstaff's death from AIDS in 1987 -and Mapplethorpe's in 1989 -marked the end of an era. Black White + Gray reveals the powerful troika these two men formed with Patti Smith and the influence their collective work continues to have over present-day art and culture.

Markie Hancock uses intimate footage to reconstruct the story of her slow break with her evangelical up­ bringing. Tapping into her personal experience, she also illuminates the "civil war" that divides so many of us in these United States. At the dawning of the Reagan years, she explains that it was "hard to tell where the religion ended and family began." I ndeed, it was hard to tell where indoctri­ nation ended and a person a l belief system bega n . To sort i t all out, Hancock heads t o a d ivided Berlin ("The irony was not lost," she explains), where personal exploration provokes a critical choice: Leave the religion and lose the family, or stay in the religion and lose your­ self. Time passes, fundamentalist ideologies intensify and Hancock elucidates how the issues that are segre­ gating our country are the same ones that painfully divide her family. The film is so evenhanded that it is likely to resonate equally with both heartland evangeli­ cals and San Francisco queers. Ultimately, Born Again questions which is scarier: the fight for, or the attain­ ment of, personal freedom? The poignant short film In God's House - Asian American Lesbian & Gay Families in the Church profiles several Asian Americans as they struggle to reconcile their faith and an often hostile church. - ROBERT O'SHAUGHNESSY & GAY d i r Una Hoshino 2006 USA 22 min B O R N AGAI N dir Markie Hancock 2007 USA 70 min IN GO�'S HOUSE - ASIAN AMERICAN LESBIAN

Fall from Grace exposes the twisted, insular world of Baptist preacher Fred Phelps and his aggressive crusade to stamp out homosexuality. Along with his extended . brood, which includes dozens of children, gra�dchildren and great grandchildren who speak just like him, Phelps travels from his Topeka, Kansas headquarters across the U.S. to spread his message and wreak havoc. First-time documentary filmmaker K. Ryan Jones spent 12 months following the man who's gained national attention pick­ eting the funerals of AIDS victims and the funerals of servicemen killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. To Phelps, these casualties of war are God's punishment on a country that accepts homosexuality as "normal." Jones gets behind the scenes at Sunday sermons, picketing sessions and Phelps family gatherings to shed light on what motivates the preacher and his followers. I nterviews with two of his childre n who abandoned "the cause" several years ago provide intriguing insight into what might fuel Phelps' fire of hate. Jones doesn't have to look far to find people from the anti-Phelps contingent who are willing to talk, i ncluding the mayor of Topeka and theologians who p rovide fasci nating passage-by-passage analysis of the scri pture from which Phelps and his clan claim to derive their truths. Like a gruesome car wreck that catches and keeps your eye, Fall from Grace is difficult, disturbing and fascinat­ ing all at once.

Today 's hip hop and electronic music would not be the same without Cheren and colleagues such as legendary OJ Larry Levan and former partner and Paradise Garage owner Michael Brody. As the tragedy of AIDS struck, Cheren channeled his efforts to the fight against the disease through programs like 24 Hours for Life and LifeBEAT, becoming an impor­ tant voice of a community too enthusiastic and full of life to be struck down mid-boogie. Highlighted throughout the film, it is the exuberant, captivating music that Cheren helped cultivate that evokes the true feeling of the time­ a time when the greatest thing to do was dance.

shave removing her Adam's apple to the final surgery that will remove her most offending parts, Madison's meta­ morphosis is both physical and emotional. Not once does Madison question her decision or her gender identity, but she does worry about how her family will handle her transition. While her mothe r initially grieves over the loss of her son, Madison's entire family proves to be remarkably supportive, particularly her 80-year-old grandmother Vivien, who, with her elegant British accent and a set of hot rollers, is the determined doyenne of all things feminine. Madison, however, has little interest in make-up, jewelry or fashion, but is inter­ ested in finding a meaningful relationship with a man who can accept her as wholly female. For Madison, being transsexual was always a tem­ porary situation. Through personal video diaries, revealing family moments, doctor visits and hospital stays, we are able to witness her body finally coming into harmony with her clear sense of self.

enters into a legal partnership with his longtime lover­ cum-manager Janis Sidovsky in an idyllic ceremony set in a castle on a hill. The fi lm intercuts between their preparations for the wedding -as they listen (somewhat narcissistically) to stories about their upcoming union on the radio while stylists work tirelessly to ensure they look perfect - and their reflections on the nuptials several weeks later. The star couple got hitched just days after the Czech Republic began legally recognizing same-sex partnerships in July, 2006. Miracle takes a more political view of the move­ ment in Spain, where the Partido Socialista fulfilled its promise of full marriage equality soon after its rise to power in 2004. The fi lm captures the passion, excite­ ment and eloquence of its subjects - including film­ maker Pedro Almod6var -who assert their equality in the eyes of society and the law. They also express great pride in their country 's dramatic leap to the forefront of human rights after lagging behind for so many years under a legacy of fascism. Leave it to the Spaniards to take it to the streets and turn their historic LGBT rights victory into one hell of a party.

"Twenty four hours a day . . . all I think about is dancing, dancing, dancing." Having danced virtually nonstop since the age of five, Jock Soto has had little ti me for much else. Now, at the age of forty, one of modern ba llet 's most gifted and celebrated dancers is on the verge of retire足 ment. After 24 years with the New York City Ballet-and a decade of grueling pain associated with his passion and profession-Soto is forced to contemplate life after dance -and the evolution of his very identity. With his bea utiful , ath l etic body a n d an i n nate musical elegance, Soto's talent was recognized early and instantly. Raised on a reservation in Arizona by a Navajo mother and Puerto Rican father (who both supported and encouraged his every plis), he began dancing the Native American hoop dance at age three, won a full scholar足 ship to the School of American Ballet at age 14 and, at just 1 6, was selected by George Balanchine for the New York City Ballet. An im med iate star in the compa ny, Soto was able to move seamlessly from subtle move足 ments of grace and precision to aggressive leaps and lifts of ball erinas. As he reflects on his uncertain future, Soto a lso attempts to connect with his past, revisiting his Navajo roots and the cultural heritage to which he is at once detached and devoted. A rich blend of performance and rehearsal footage, personal interviews and old fa mi ly photos, this engrossing cinematic portrait is a remark足 able personal journey and a paean to a great gay artist. - JOANNE PARSONT WATER FLOWING TOGETHER dir Gwendolen Cates 2007 USA 79 min
