Celebrating a cOnlnlunity of perspectives through filnl

When you look back at the efforts and achievements of LGBT men and women over the years, there's every reason to be proud. The films at this festival are just a few examples of the efforts of this community towards fostering a world that doesn't just accept differences, but celebrates them. Happy Pride. All year round. Wells Fargo is proud to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Frameline San Francisco's International LGBT Film Festival.

Together we'll go far

wellsfargo.com/lgbt Š 2011 Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. All rights reserved. Member FDIC.


While every Frameline film festival is a celebration of art, stories and our communities, this year we have even more to celebrate: it's our 35th Anniversary! Since its inception, Frameline has staked its claim as a San Francisco landmark, and for this landmark year, we're proud to bring you 2011's most exciting LGBT films from across the world. In addition to the Festival's anniversary, Frameline Distribution is marking its 30th birthday this year, and the Frameline Completion Fund turns 20. And what better way to celebrate all these anniversaries than eleven days of outstanding cinema? Kick off your Festival with our Opening Night Film, the Sundance hit Gun Hill Road, a poignant story of a Bronx transgender teen, a mother holding her family together, and a father struggling to put aside his notions of manhood. Gun Hill Road is just one standout hit in a special spotlight program on transgender cinema, celebrating some of the most exciting new work in LGBT film and highlighting this year's trans-themed films. Be sure to catch a lively clip show with Susan Stryker and Jenni Olson, titled "We Who Are Sexy: The Whirlwind History of Transgender Images in Cinema. " Join us for our Centerpiece Narrative this year, Tom Tykwer's Three, where love is as easy as one­ two-and ... well, you know. From the director of Run, Lola, Run, this smoldering comedy-drama about bisexuality, love and longing in cosmopolitan Berlin portrays three adults who all find a more complicated love life can be more fulfilling. And come celebrate a deeply private and incredibly public coming out story at our Centerpiece Documentary Wish Me Away, a revealing portrait of country music star Chely Wright and her journey to acceptance. And there's so much more. We'll get your toes tapping with a bounty of musicals, from ballroom divas voguing on the catwalk in the glittering Leave It on the Floor to tunefully unrequited love in Jamie and Jessie Are Not Together. History will repeat itself at a retrospective screening of the queer cinema classics Paris is Burning, a perfect compliment to Leave It on the Floor. T his June, fantasy isn't just for lonely nights-we have vampires, zombies, werewolves, and even codependent lesbian aliens! We'll close our 35th anniversary event with Christopher and His Kind. Fans of author Christopher Isherwood and newcomers to his work alike will want to check out this true account of the events that inspired The Berlin Stories and Cabaret. Lose yourself in the hedonism of Berlin's gay subculture in the 1930s during the waning days of the Weimar Republic as the young Isherwood looks for boys, bacchanalia, and escape in a changing and doomed society. For 35 years, Frameline has been honored to be at the forefront of the LGBT film movement. As you enjoy the films, galas, panels, and presentations of this remarkable anniversary festival, we invite you to reflect and take in all the passion, persistence, history and incredible storytelling that puts LGBT film at the vanguard of the art of cinema. We look forward to the next 35 years of exciting films, and we thank you for all your support of Frameline through the years. See you at the movies!

Rashaad Ernesto Green 201 1 USA 88 min

An official selection of this year's Sundance Film Festival, Gun Hill Road is a tense and complex family drama about a teen embracing her gender identity and a father who must put aside his notions of man­ hood and reinvestigate his own ideas of what having a "normal" child means. There is no doubt that Enrique Michael Rodriguez has many ideas of what his young son-and namesake -will become: strong, proud of his Nuyorican heritage, macho ... just like Enrique himself. But when Enrique returns home to the Bronx after three years in prison, he finds that he doesn't know his son Michael at all. Enrique tries to make up for lost time by focusing even more attention on his son, only to realize that Michael is transitioning and spends a lot of time as Vanessa. And Vanessa is strug­ gling to balance school, her poetry, her family, and a boyfriend who prefers private time to public dates. Meanwhile, Vanessa's supportive mother, Angela, tries to keep her family together in spite of her own volatile personal life. Three pitch-perfect leads anchor an incredible cast. The always sexy Esai Morales (Caprica, NYPD Blue, Bad Boys) simmers as Enrique, Judy Reyes (Scrubs, Ol) plays Angela with grounded vulnerability, and newcomer Harmony Santana is a true breakout star, shining as Vanessa. - ANGELIQUE SMITH

exploration of human motivation. If you let it, love can be as easy as one-two-three, as Tykwer proves in this atmospheric piece about bisexuality, love and longing in cosmopolitan Berlin.

One: appealingly disheveled Simon, all scruff and dimples, who's ready to move on from tragedy. Two: slyly humorous Hanna, wry and knowing, who wants more than the comfortable companion­ ship she has with Simon. Three: magnetic blonde Adam, impish and confident, an occasional father who looks for connec­ tion. Which he finds with Simon. And Hanna. But none of the three knows what the other two are doing. Here infidelity is just what the love doc­ tor ordered. Hesitant first approaches turn voracious, and the affairs pulse with sensuality, especially when Simon and Adam smolder on-screen. As each coupling's relationship grows more satisfying phys­ ically and spiritually, the trio's palpable chemistry drives the story to a dizzying climax. These spheres must collide eventually-right? Sophie Rois, Devid Streisow, and Tykwer regular Sebastian Schipper give exquisite performances, lending an air of enigmatic charisma to characters sorting out what it means to live life with abandon in one of the great cities of the world. Tykwer fractures the first half of the film with haunting poetry and stark fantasies. He pulls back from these as the characters' lives slide into focus, which feels like taking a step back from a chaotic mosaic to see a fresh and invigorating story come into view. - TRISTA KENDALL


Wish Me Away OIR

Bobbie Birleffi, Beverly Kopf 2011 USA 95 min

"Sometimes living one's honest life is damn near impossible." Or so it felt to award-winning country music star Chely Wright for most of her closeted life -first raised in a Christian home in a tiny Bible-Belt town and then as a member of the sexually repressed and homophobic country music industry in Nashville. Surrounded by a family, community, culture and religion that all believed that being gay is just wrong (and, to many, "of the devil"), Wright prayed regularly for God to rid her of her homosexuality, vowing to give up on love in return. Instead, music became her love, as she scored hits like "Shut Up and Drive" and "Single White Female:' But while her dreams of stardom came true, she remained tormented by her sexuality and paralyzed by the fear of coming out. Would the country music industry tolerate a lesbian in their ranks? Would her fans reject her? She tried dating men (including fellow country star Brad Paisley), poured her energy into philanthropic endeavors, and contemplated suicide before finally acknowledging what she knew she needed to do. In 2010, she began calculated preparations to release an album and a book (Like Me) that would finally reveal her coming-out story and make country music history. Through sometimes tearful interviews and conversations, video diary entries, music videos, and several of her songs, this touching portrait follows Wright up to her full-court media press, from Oprah to People magazine, as she discovers the transformational power of living an authentic life. - JOANNE PARSONT

Christopher and His Kind

dirGeoffreySax 201 1 UK90min

Christopher and His Kind presents a stunning piece of LGBT history with this BBC drama of novelist Christopher Isherwood's 1976 memoir. Recounting the English-American writer's years in 1930s Germany, this is the true story of Isherwood's celebrated The Berlin Stories , which served as the basis for the Broad­ way musical and film Cabaret. In the 1930s, Isherwood moved to hedonistic Berlin "because of the boys:' But he also moved there to pursue his burgeoning writing career and to escape England and the stifling expectations of his snobbish mother (Lindsay Duncan, HBO's Rome). Handsome Matt Smith (the U.K.'s latest Dr. Who) plays the young Isherwood as the film beautifully captures his relationships with the poet W.H. Auden, flatmate Jean Ross (Isherwood's real life friend and the basis for his immortal character Sally Bowles) and the Jewish, upper class Wilfrid Landauer (lddo Goldberg, Secret Diary OfA Call Girn . Against the intoxicating backdrop of Berlin's gay subculture during the waning bacchanalia of the Weimar Republic, Isherwood falls hopelessly in love with Heinz Neddermayer-yet their relationship faces impossible challenges in the face

There has been a resurgence of interest in Isherwood and his works with Tom Ford's A Single Man and the documentary Chris And Don: A Love Story (Frameline32) that chronicled the author's 35-year relationship with artist Don Bachardy.

Comedian , actor, author, activist , and all-around entertainer Margaret Cho has described herself as many things throughout her career but perhaps none more than "outsider." It is likely this identity of outcast that has made Ms. Cho a loud and proud spokesperson for gays and the lesbians, bisexuals and transgender folks, fag hags and feminists, Asian nerds and drag queens. Born and raised on Haight Street in the 1970s, the Korean-American began professional standup at age sixteen as a distraction from teen bullying, and by her early twenties she was appearing with the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Arsenio Hall, and Bob Hope. Her big break came with the 1994 ABC television series All-American Girl, a groundbreaking show featuring one of the earliest representations of an East Asian family on a major network. It seemed Margaret had truly made it. But with All-American Girl came a loss of creative control and Cho's resulting personal struggles with addiction, eating disorders, and profound self-doubt. What should have been a professional highpoint was instead the death of Margaret Cho as a mainstream performer and the wondrous birth of the fabulous Margaret Cho - queer icon and no-holds-barred independent artist. The new Cho proudly came out as bisexual, wowing us with her standup performances-turned-films I'm The One That I Want (Frameline24), Notorious C.H.o. (Frameline26), Cho Revolu­ tion (Frameline28), and Margaret Cho: Assassin (2005). Margaret was still a household name, but this time in a

different kind of household. Stating that she learned politics from Harvey Milk, Cho is what we wish for all of the children of San Francisco to become - open, honest, accepting, and a true activist. She is an outspoken proponent of marriage equality and trans rights, and has been a Frameline presence for years, appearing in Bam Bam and Celeste (Frameline29), Girltrash! (Frameline31), Rick & Steve, the Happiest Gay Couple in All the World (Frameline29), and this year's

concert film Cho Dependent (Frameline35).

For all that she has done for the queers of the world, and all she will undoubtedly continue. to do, we are proud to honor Margaret Cho with this year's Frameline Award.

TRANSGENDER

��

Frameline has featured transgender film from its very beginning: today's festival traces its roots to the 1977 "Gay Film Festival of Super-B Films," which included Changes, a short documentary about the transsexual filmmaker's efforts to get a driver's license reflecting her new name and sex. Ever since that first festival in 1977, Frameline has screened a steady stream of films with transgender content; and this year, for the first time, Frameline's annual festival features a special programming strand devoted to transgender film.

"Transgender" is a slippery term,

Becoming Chaz

DlR Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato 201 1 USA 88 min

Growing up with famous parents, constantly in the public eye would be hard for anyone. Now imagine that all those images people have seen of you are lies about how you actually felt. Chaz Bono grew up as Sonny and Cher's adorable golden-haired daughter and felt trapped in a female shell. Becoming Chaz is a bracingly intimate portrait of a person in transition and the relationships that must evolve with him. As Chaz undertakes gender reassignment, he invites us along on his journey of transformation. Along with his girlfriend, Jenny, he travels from Los Angeles to San Francisco for surgery. It's clear that the transition is more than physical, especially for those around him. He decides to go public with his story, to put a face on a misunder足 stood issue. Family and friends offer frank insight in interviews, about Chaz's past as Chastity and the present. Dealing with the press, Chaz decided to go on the offensive instead of letting reporters dig and assume. Cher tells it like it is, including her reticence about Chaz's plan to come out loud and proud. Intimate and nakedly honest about the nitty gritty of transition in general and Chaz's personal experience, the film reveals the courage it takes for Chaz to embrace his true self.

Floor is that and more, a supersized musical featuring a

family of fierce voguing performers coming together to snatch a trophy in the big ballroom competition. When our hero Brad is kicked out of his house for being gay, he finds himself drawn into a raucous ball­ room event. Looking for a warm place to sleep-and someone to sleep with? -Brad meets the ragtag members of the struggling House of Eminence. As he searches for his place in this family of fascinating characters, he gets schooled in how to express himself with spins, dips, and hands. When he decides to join the house and compete with his new family, everyone comes together to help him learn. That is, until a love triangle threatens to destroy all that they've built together. Director Sheldon Larry deftly interweaves original songs throughout. "Justin's Gonna Call" and the title track "Leave It On the Floor" are sure to make it onto your playlist, and they're all equally matched by the signature moves of Frank Gaston, Jr., one of pop music's most sought-after choreographers (Michael Jackson, Destiny's Child, and does anyone remember an obscure song and dance called "Single Ladies"?). Pulsing with energy, joy, and some of the catchiest and queerest dance songs ever, Leave It On the Floor will keep you coming back for more. - CINDY M. EMCH

Mangus! is a campy dark comedy, a trashy riot from Ash Christian, writer and director of Fat Girls. It's as if Female Trouble and Napoleon Dynamite had a red-headed lovechild - with a cutting sense of humor and a colostomy bag. Mangus Spedgwick has had one dream his whole life: to follow in his father's and grandfather's footsteps by being Jesus-in his high school's annual production of "Jesus Christ Spectacular." Just when he's got the part, a freak accident threatens to derail all of his dreams. The theater director (a brilliant Leslie Jordan) wants to keep

Meet Spork. She's a girl-identified 13 year old with an intersex condition. Middle school is a dangerous bat­ tleground-and dance is Spork's weapon of choice. Spork, the frizzy-haired and four-eyed outcast, is determined to win the $236 prize at Cherry Lane Middle School's upcoming talent show so she can use the money to become beautiful and fit in. Unfortunately, the token gang of mean girls (Betsy Byotch and the Byotches) is determined to come out on top, and they aren't willing to let anything get in their way. Perhaps worst of all, Spork lacks the coordination and rhythm it takes to win. But Spork has more people on her side than she thinks. A mysterious friend named Chunk offers fortune cookie advice-literally-that changes her life. Tootsie Roll, Spark's foul-mouthed trailer park neighbor, has all the right moves, but she agrees to coach Spork after her own dreams are crushed by a tragic hair-product incident. And Spark's older brother, Spit, loves her with gruff tenderness. The cast of energetic youngsters and cult comedy actors makes for a dazzling coming-of-age film. J.B. Ghuman, Jr.'s directorial debut blends the standard motifs of adolescence -bullying, friendship, and perseverance-with sparkling aesthetics, hilarious tweens, and a soundtrack that will leave you wondering why your middle school never knew how to shake it quite like the kids at Cherry Lane. Spark pits our repressed memo­ ries of junior high against a booty-shaking soundtrack that oozes with queer dance party goodness. - ALEX CHOUSA

him, but he can't break free from needing to fit in with his straight friends. Glen is the polar opposite: he's com颅 pletely open to experiencing what gay life has to offer. As an artist, Glen rebuffs the hypocrisy of gays trying to assimilate into established institutions of straight society. While he is continually looking for sexual intimacy, Glen is dead set against any type of commitment. In his words, "I don't do boyfriend." As these two unlikely companions spend the weekend talking, having sex, drinking, and taking drugs, they challenge each other's delicately protected zone of comfort. From bedroom to bar, they can't ignore the intimate connection that's pulling each closer to the other. But they know the weekend will eventually come to an end. Will their newfound love reach a similar fate?

Weekend was one of the opening films at SXSW in March and received quite the buzz at the Austin festival, even garnering an audience award for director Andrew Haigh. It is both an honest and unapologetic love story between two guys and a film about making a passionate commitment to life.

Oddmund Lindeflaten is a bumbling Norwegian soccer player who arrives on a small-town Kansas bison farm to work as an au pair. And the inevitable question arises: is he gay? Oddmund's new employer is Helen Hazelton, an uptight widow who's been seeing her husband's ghost -and talking with him. Oddmund's charges are a sullen fifteen year old, Atticus, and a shy nine year old, Beau. To draw the boys out of their shells, he gathers together a motley soccer team: Atticus's crush, a dyke policewoman, an older chess coach, a middle school bully, a drag queen art teacher, and a nude model. With encouragement from her dreamy dead hus­ band, Charlie, Helen is trying to move on. As details of Charlie's life filter through, it's clear that he tried unsuccessfully to hide a secret gay life. As a nurturing man in a conservative town, Oddmund's motives are under constant scrutiny. When Oddmund rebuffs Helen's advances, she finds a terrible pretense to kick hi m out of the house. After the police get involved, the boys rally around their au pair. Helen learns that love­ in any form - is more powerful than pushing people away. Norwegian i mport Havard Lilleheie shines as Oddmund, and cult favorite Traci Lords shines as Helen in this heartwarming, small-town story.

familiar note for many: "what if he comes back?" Emo­ tions run high when Jonathan receives a message that his ex, Troy, is back in town after living in Barcelona for years. A blast from the past becomes a passionate cur­ rent affair. But things aren't so simple, especially since Jonathan is happily partnered with his new love, Raul. By telling the story from multiple viewpoints, director Eldar Rapaport poignantly expresses the complexities of love. Raul, who is married to Jonathan's female friend so that he can stay in the U.S., is apprehensive when the ex he's heard so much about returns. And Troy is clearly after his old flame, while Jonathan is torn between his two great loves and his own personal struggles. What develops is a tangled web of tough choices that each character has to make for love. While at first the situation seems to present a clear set of moral lines, the character and plot developments eloquently express that matters of the heart are never black and white. All three men are aware of what is developing and are forced to confront their own emo­ tions. Troy must face his tendency to run away, Jonathan struggles with his emotional maturity, and Raul tests the limits of what he's willing to tolerate for love. Based on the short film Postmortem, August is gorgeously shot, thoughtfully acted, and scored with haunting Middle Eastern melodies, culminating in a confident piece with a tender tone. - KYLiE M INONO

I Want your Love offers u p a different perspective on sex. Best friends Jesse and Brenden can talk about pretty much anything and anyone. Hanging out and drinking, their talk turns sexual, and with just the right amount of alcoholic lubricant, they fall down that rabbit hole of recreational sex. The action is graphically hot, passionate with no holds barred. But in the end, something has changed and gotten much more com­ plicated between two "besties." Director Travis Math­ ews (In Their Room) gives us a thoughtful and sexually explicit scene that is a tantalizing appetizer of a feature film in progress. - MARCUS WONAcon

The One

Private Romeo

DIR Caytha Jentis 201 0 USA 8 9 min

DIR Alan Brown 2011 U S A 98 min

When will Tommy learn not to fall in love with straight guys? He's a cute lawyer with a lot to offer, but he's fallen hard for shy, brooding Daniel. The two went to the same college, a few years apart, and it turns out that Tommy has been crushing for a while. They con­ nect over lacrosse, their alma mater, and Dostoevsky -the beginning of a seemingly doomed relationship. After a night together, Daniel announces that he's engaged to a woman. Despite his obvious feelings for Tommy, he's determined to marry Jen and bury any other urges deep. When they reconnect at the gym, Daniel reluctantly introduces Tommy to Jen, an adorable, endearing civil lawyer who instantly bonds with Tommy. Tommy invites Daniel to a gathering of college alumni- or that's the pretense. Instead, it's an intimate country getaway with just the two of them. As they fall deeper in love, Daniel, who also loves Jen, still plans to marry and swears he'll never be unfaithful. But he just can't seem to shake his feelings for Tommy. More a coming of age story than a coming out story, The One gracefully examines how complicated life can be when love pulls us in opposite directions.

Love knows no boundaries, but same-sex attraction in an all boys military academy is a tough drill. When eight cadets are left behind from a training exercise, love and trouble abound at McKinley Academy in Private Romeo, a suspenseful and sensual retelling of a classic tale. The story begins in the classroom with the cadets reading Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, but the storyline escapes the confines of the classroom and becomes the lens through which the boys live out the ensuing drama. The characters are soon revealed as their classical coun­ terparts, with rival cliques acting as the warring houses. The text takes on new meaning as our man Juliet and his Romeo follow their hearts. As the war between the two houses boils over, all of these handsome cadets are pulled into the turmoil of forbidden love. Writer-director Alan Brown (0 Beautiful) uses origi­ nal dialogue sparingly but to good effect. Brown cast only Shakespearean trained actors, and it shows. Mature acting from the entire ensemble keeps the story fresh and modern, especially Hale Appleman's riveting turn as the film's Mercutio. Matt Doyle and Seth Num­ rich, currently performing in acclaimed play War Horse at Lincoln Center, give brilliant performances as the star-crossed lovers, sparking with chemistry.

W e b series 201 0-20 1 1 USA 90 min.

In this L.A. romantic comedy, lesbian married couple Dyna (Cathy DeBuono) and Kit (Jill Bennett) are busi­ ness partners as well as romantic partners-therapists who co-authored the best-selling self-help book, How to Succeed at Marriage Without Even Trying. Unfortu­ nately, their own marriage has long been on the rocks. Season One sure was full of drama: the couple's new­ found celebrity, a stoner sister, romantic intrigue, and a weirdo therapist to help them sort it all out. If you missed it at Frameline34 or haven't caught up on the web, don't worry. Season Two kicks off with a recap and brings us all up to speed on the current state of the couple's affairs. So where are they now? Kit's sister (Ann Noble) is still crashing on the couch and their place gets even more crowded when Dyna's sister (Maryfrances Carec­ cia) comes to visit. Kit and Dyna start therapist shopping, but somehow, the new therapists (including Meredith Baxter) all look an awful lot like their old therapist, Susan (Suzanne Westenhoefer). And they're still fighting over the same things: Dyna's to-do lists and cerebral nature, Kit's impulsiveness and quirks.

MAKI 1 8V

Frameline audiences will fondly remember the critically-acclaimed short Pariah as the transforma­ tive film that captured hearts and minds when it closed Fun in Girls' Shorts at Frameline3 1. Pariah tells a vital coming-of-age film about a Black lesbian teen in Brooklyn juggling conflicting identities and risking friendship, heartbreak, and family in a desperate search for sexual expression. After moving a sold out Castro Theatre to its feet with thunderous applause, the film won the Audience Award for Best Short. Pariah is now a feature-length film that premiered to the world at the 20 1 1 Sundance Film Festival, where it was acquired by Focus Features. Frameline is proud to have been an early supporter of Pariah, having awarded both the short and feature versions Frameline Completion Fund Grants. As we eagerly anticipate the film's theatrical release due later this year, we're thrilled to reunite "Team Pariah" and the Frameline audience. Writer/director Dee Rees and producer Nekisa Cooper will dish about the trials and triumphs of making a feature film and share clips from their work. This special event has something for everyone: filmmakers, fans of the short, and film buffs who want a peek behind the filmmaking curtain. - DESIREE BUFORD

Sebastiano teaches high school gym classes and coaches swimming. He's got a job, a girlfriend, and a pretty normal life. But as young Martin starts to infiltrate Sebastiano's life, his world will get turned upside down. Eerie from the first frame, this Hitchcockian thriller portrays sexual obsession with terrifying realism. Martin's manipulative ploys to get closer to Sebas­ tiano succeed as he lies his way into spending the night at his coach's apartment. The young man's plans of entrapment are less than subtle, as he lies sprawled on the coach, barely clothed. And when Martin creeps into Sebastiano's bedroom to touch him in his sleep, things really heat up. Sebastiano resists his charge's advances, but in the process, his own sexuality comes into question. The two circle each other, one wary, the other sinister and persistent, until tragedy strikes. Toward the end, startling time jumps give us a twist that turns the tables. What we think we've seen may in fact bear little resemblance to an even more compli­ cated reality. Director Marco Berger (Plan B) uses close-ups on details, which adds mystery and makes you wonder what you're missing outside the frame. A frantic soundtrack drives the story forward as the characters' lives reach a boil. The perfect film for anyone who prefers mind games in movies instead of real life.

The latest from filmmaker Rikki Beadle-Blair (Metro­ sexuality, F.I. T.), Bashment swirls together race, sexu­

ality, rhythm, and rhyme into a stark portrait of human potential and pain. J. J. is an aspiring M.C. who's taken London's outlaw urban music scene by storm. He's got the skills, the rhymes, and the drive. But he may run into a few hurdles on his reach for greatness; he's white, he's from the sticks, and he's gay. J.J.'s resolved to come out onstage at the Urban Slam Finals, bringing his boyfriend Orlando along as moral support. The Iliford Ilimanics are the current darlings of the scene, with their skills, charisma, sex appeal, and raw edge. When they swagger up to the stage an hour late, they're shocked to discover they've been disqualified. That J.J. is gay only pours salt into the wound, and while J.J. is onstage, the frustrated IIlmanics take out their rage on Orlando, beating him so badly that he suffers permanent brain damage. A victim reconcilia­ tion program brings J.J. face to face with Orlando's attackers, pulling all involved into an orbit from which they can't escape. Gritty performances - on and off the mic - from a young cast of Beadle-Blair regulars and new faces give depth to brutally flawed characters. What starts as a visceral, pounding story eases into a nuanced contemplation of masculinity and what lengths we'll go to in order to protect others -and ourselves. - TRISTA KENDALL

Hannah a n d the Hasbian DIR Gordon Napier 2 0 1 1 Australia 72 min

If your girlfriend decides she's totally hetero, do you get a toaster? Or maybe an icemaker? Hannah's woken up to a girlfriend who suddenly isn't into girls - Hannah included. And her ex gets extra points for irony, since Hannah gave up guys to be with her. Breigh's ready for the boys, apparently as soon as possible. But her life isn't easily untangled from Hannah's. Hannah is persistent, repeatedly pointing out just how weird this seems. Throw into the mix Dinka, their roommate who flirts shamelessly with guys and is desperate for a wingman to help pick up boys. And just when Hannah has resigned herself to the single life without her lady, Breigh starts finding out just how hard it is to connect with a dude. She starts getting her signals crossed in a big way, even with help from her roommates. And Dinka has man troubles of her own, especially after another pregnancy scare. Where will the girls land? The three leads are hilar­ ious when acting out all together, trading barbs you might recognize from your own friends. A romance crossed with a buddy movie, Hannah and the Hasbian is a quirky look at fleeting lust and lasting love. P R E C E D E D BY:

Kawa

D I R Benjamin Cantu 2011 Germany 85 min in German with English subtitles

Following the heartbreaking, sexually charged novel of the same name by award-winning author Witi Ihimaera (Whale Rider), Ka wa is the story of a family man coming out for the first time in the Maori world, where the ties that bind are tight and the responsibili­ ties of family extend well beyond just one generation. His marriage on the rocks, handsome Kawa lives out of a hotel, spending his days under fire at the office and his nights at a local "steam room" where he has anonymous sex with men. Annabelle, his wife, vaguely suspects the involvement of another woman but stifles the notion in an attempt to keep their family intact. Feeling guilty and isolated from his children, Kawa puts on a brave face and returns to his family in time to visit his aging father and be passed the Kahu huruhuru (a feathered cloak), a symbol that the time has come for him to lead the family. Just as his family life reaches a shaky equilibrium, Kawa's elderly mother spots him bidding farewell to a former lover in secret, and her silent scorn prompts him to reveal his true identity to his family - and live with the fallout that follows. This story thrives on the big screen thanks to breathtaking views of New Zealand's beautiful land­ scape, as the nuanced direction of Katie Wolfe deftly illuminates the loss and liberation that accompanies coming out with a family in tow.

DIR Katie Wo lfe 2011 New Zealand 76 m i n

According to his cohort of apprentices on a German farm, Marko is an enigma. He's withdrawn from his fellow students, he doesn't drink alcohol, and he lives alone. Rigorous in his hands-on studies and unmoti­ vated in other academic pursuits, he's listless about his future, unsure if he even actually wants to be a farmer. It takes a new apprentice, Jakob, to pull him from his shell. With adorable curls and an easy smile, Jakob jumps right into the work. He seems to have his head in the clouds, but his humor and sweetness allow him to get through to Marko. In turn, Marko steals increas­ ingly bold glances at his handsome colleague. Their languid, agonizing crush comes to fruition with an urgent kiss in the barn. Emotionally overwhelmed, Marko tries to keep his distance from Jakob. But when the two country mice escape together to the big city, they spend a revealing night together that cements their endearingly clumsy love. Breathtaking visuals capture a lush landscape in the height of summer. Director Benjamin Cantu shot on an actual farm with a program for adolescents study­ ing agriculture. Apart from the two fantastic leads, every character actually works on the farm, including the farm's personnel, allowing for a seamless casual tone and a feeling of utter authenticity. If you've been waiting for a rural love story without the usual cliches, Harvest delivers with an abundance of romance.

Old Cats

Rom eos

DIR Pedro Peirano, Sebastian Silva 2010 Chile 89 min in Spanish with English subtitles

DlR Sabine Bernardi 2011 Germany 94 min in German with English subtitles

From award-winning filmmakers Pedrio Peirano and Sebastian Silva (The Maid) comes Old Cats, a wickedly delicious chamber drama about a family marinating in its own problems. Isadora and Enrique, an elderly couple, live a com­ fortable life with their two ample cats in a handsome high-rise apartment overlooking the park. Isadora is struggling with a bout of dementia when her daugh­ ter, Rosario, and her butch female lover, Hugo, drop in for a coked-up visit to pitch their latest get-rich scheme - and attempt to snatch the flat right out from under Isadora. T hen Isadora does something quite unexpected for a woman with a busted hip, and everything changes. Drawing solid performances from a brilliant cast, Silva and Peirano have crafted a splendid film filled with the pathos and black humor found in treacherous mother-daughter relationships. Old Cats points a way to how empathy may lead to survivable neutral ground.

A sweltering German summer is the perfect backdrop for Romeos, a rich story of coming into one's own. Lukas just turned twenty, just showed up for his year of civil service, just finished his twenty-fifth shot of testosterone, and is saving up for surgery. Life is looking good. But when he's mistakenly assigned to a women's dorm and as he falls for a hot guy, it gets harder to keep his secret under wraps. Girls surround Lukas, including his childhood friend and wingman, Ine. But Romeos is all about the boys. Fabio, the hyper-masculine object of Lukas's affection, runs hot and cold, but their chemistry unde­ niably steams up the screen - until a birthday visit from Lukas's family throws everything off balance. Blonde Sven is a caring new friend, but a drunken night turns into a dangerous hookup. As he gains confidence, Lukas starts ignoring Ine, who's having romantic troubles herself. When he needs support, he's suddenly alone. Will Lukas's hormones get the best of him? Can he find a true connection? Director Sabine Bernardi adds intensity to beauti­ ful camerawork with deeply saturated colors, and her deft pacing gives lingering looks and quiet moments time to fully develop. Rick Okon plays Lukas with raw physicality. Okon sparks with the rest of the charis­ matic cast, especially Maximilian Befort as the con­ flicted and charming Fabio. Romeos resonates with outstanding storytelling, balancing sweetness and authenticity in a pitch-perfect film.

The Advocate for Fagdom

O I R Angela Tucker 2011 USA 75 min

DlR Angel ique Bosio 2011 France 9 2 min

Hold the skepticism -the smart and funny group of people profiled in this fast-moving documentary have heard it all before. Meet Swank Ivy, who makes YouTube videos debunking common beliefs about asexuals; or David Jay, the movement's poster boy, and a regular on television talk shows. The ladies of The View can barely conceal their disbelief as young and cute Jay describes his lack of desire -for anyone. (A)sexua/ documents the growth of this newly-organized sexual minority while raising provocative questions about queer inclu­ siveness and the boundaries of "normal" sexual desire. The community is powered by the internet and modeled on the gay rights movement. In 2002 Jay cre­ ated a website, asexuality.org, so he could find others like himself. Today, there are some 26,000 members of AVEN (Asexual Visibility and Education Network). Members discuss coming out as an asexual, their struggles for acceptance, and the various subgroups within the community (to cuddle or not to cuddle?). The endless parallels to queer experiences will make your head spin. Along with David Jay and other members of the asexual community, the film features academic researchers who speculate that there are over three million asexuals in the US. Sexperts Carol Queen and Dan Savage weigh in on the fledgling asexual move­ ment and its place in queerdom. Does the GLBTQQ community have room for another letter? And is it pos­ sible that in today's sexualized society, lack of desire is perversion's final frontier?

You think you know, but you have no idea. Bruce LaBruce has been called many things in his life, and this film makes the case that the most appropriate -and most flattering-title would be Advocate for Fagdom. From Canadian farm boy to toast of Toronto and New York underground scenes, LaBruce has made a name for himself with bold art and an unwavering commitment to his own vision, distasteful though it is to many. Writers, filmmakers, gallery owners, actors, photographers, friends and loved ones offer anecdotes, interpretation or analysis of LaBruce and his work. John Waters, Bruce Benderson, Harmony Korine, Gus Van Sant, Richard Kern, Rick Castro and others are among those who contribute to the patchwork portrait of the hardcore legend, but just enough is held back to keep LaBruce's enigmatic mystery very much alive. Fans of LaBruce's films and those who have been wondering what all the fuss is about will enjoy this exploration of a transgressive artist. Judiciously-chosen clips illustrate the commentary of others, rounding out a more complete picture of a fascinating personality who pushes himself -and those who see his art­ to extremes.

Last Fast Ride - The Life, Love and Death of a Punk Goddess

DlR: Sonali Gu lati India 72 min

What do parents say when they find out their child is gay? What if they never get the chance to respond? Eleven years after her mother's death, award-winning lesbian filmmaker Sonali Gulati returns to her home­ town of New Delhi, India, to clean out her house and make peace with the parent she never came out to. In her meditative and personal new documentary, I Am, Gulati interviewed twenty-one Indian families over the course of five years to unravel the intricacies and diffi­ culties of coming out in India. From Balli, who was kidnapped and threatened by her girlfriend's family, to Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil, the first openly gay royal, who had a nervous breakdown before publicly coming out to the press, the dangerous pressures of a homophobic society are undeniable in Gulati's interviews. However, bright spots on the horizon dawn: Piali and her girlfriend walk the dog with Piali's mother, Rituparna finds acceptance in her chosen family, and Aditya marries his partner with his parents' sweet and spiritual blessing: "The seal of God is stamped on every creation."

Bay Area punk provocateur Marian Anderson was about more than performing topless and lesbian sex onstage. She was more than powerful vocals and lyrics that would knock you down faster than a Gilman St. mosh-pit. She was more than court cases, censorship and some nefarious business with a banana. Marian Anderson was a visionary musician who spent her life creating art and trying to exorcize her demons through the music of her bands The Insaints, Five Fingers and The Thrill Killers. This is her story. Featuring interviews and archival footage, the film highlights revelations about Anderson's painful past, her career as a sex worker, which started at age 13, her part-time job as a dominatrix, her musical ambi­ tions and legal problems, and her descent into drug addiction and mental illness. The true heart of the film is revealed as it covers the later part of her life, when she moves to los Angeles and falls in love with Danielle Santos Bernal. Theirs was a volatile relation­ ship but seemingly Marian's only true love - aside from her music. Never fully able to conquer her drug addiction or mental illness, Marian left behind a legacy of intense music and a life lived hard. Narrated by pop culture icon Henry Rollins, featur­ ing interviews with punk rock royalty such as Tim Armstrong of Rancid, Dexter Holland of The Offspring, Becky Wreck of lunachicks, Texas Terri, Daniel deleon, Greg langston, Fate Fatal, Ginger Coyote, and more.

In 1968, a Japanese detective film was released called it went on to become a cult classic. The main character was an enchanting screen pres­ ence who captured the hearts of the Japanese public: Akihiro Miwa. A legendary entertainer and a pioneer of gay activism, Miwa was born Akihiro Maruyama. As a young singer, Miwa popularized androgyny as a fashion statement, fusing the masculine and the feminine into a signal of a new generation of aesthetics. This evolved into performing as a woman and living off-stage as a man. With glitter, wit, evening gowns, and enchanting storytelling, Miwa looks back over his 50-year career and his fascinating life in music, film and television (Miwa was a friend and lover of author Yukio Mishima). At the time of the documentary, Miwa is selling out performances of his one-man show "L'Amour." Having sold millions of records and drawing amazing crowds to theatres, Miwa continues to fight for gay rights, among other issues. This documentary by Pascal-Alex Vincent (Give Me Your Hand, Frameline33) reveals the life story of this wonderful performer and societal critic who has an eye for identifying hypocrisy. Miwa remains incredibly popular in a country where contra­ dictions permeate life. Black Lizard

Orchids: My I ntersex Adventure DIR Phoebe Hart 2010 Australia 60 min

In Orchids: My Intersex Adventure , Australian sisters Phoebe and Bonnie take viewers on a courageous jour­ ney out of isolation and shame toward empowerment, connection and honesty. Both sisters have Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (AIS), an intersex condition where a person's body develops externally as female despite 't{ chromosomes, due to the body's resistance to masculinizing hormones (i.e. androgens). The sisters vividly describe the physical and emotional scars com­ mon to many people with various intersex conditions (or, in medical terms, Disorders of Sex Development), such as the trauma of being put on medical display, surgeries about which they are deceived and warnings to keep quiet about what little they know about their own bodies. Orchids is an educational and heartwarmingly per­ sonal story of a family working through shared trauma. This candid road movie captures Phoebe and Bonnie's brave and vulnerable pursuit of connection, where they find strength in the power of authenticity, personal sto­ rytelling and the gift of being a special type of flower.

Out for the long Run

Paris is Burning

D I R Scott Bloom, 2 0 1 0 U S A 78 min

DIR Jennie Livingston 1 99 1 USA 78 min

Openly gay professional sports figures are few and far between in the U.S. Yet many young athletes are now coming out while in high school and college, where navigating from classroom to locker room is challeng­ ing and isolating. Filmmaker Scott Bloom (Call Me Troy, Frame­ line32) travels across the country to explore how homophobia in athletics is affecting a new generation. For many of these accomplished athletes, sports serve as an invaluable distraction from the difficulties of being a gay teen. But many schools are not welcoming or safe environments for gay students, whether they excel in their sport or not. At Berkeley High, senior cross-country running team captain Austin is generally accepted by his teammates but still feels alienated by the overarching boy-chases-girl macho mentality of his peers. In the rural town of Waldo, Maine, soccer player Liz felt so ostracized by her teammates that she stopped playing her beloved sport altogether. Bloom weaves candid interviews with these brave young athletes, their parents, and their coaches with intimate snippets from the students' personal "diary cams". Former professional athletes-who have since come out -offer potent commentary, including Major League baseball player Billy Bean and Olympic diver Greg Louganis, who grew up with no gay role models in their sports. But, ultimately, when these competitors are out on the field or in the water, athletic abilities are what matters most, not sexual orientation.

Dip back into LGBT history with a retrospective screen­ ing of seminal documentary Paris is Burning. Between 1987 and 1989, director Jennie Livingston documented the lives of gay and trans performers, mostly black or Latino, who compete in New York City's balls and dream of achieving celebrity status. Visually striking with an intensely saturated color palate and gorgeous film grain, Paris is Burning is a profound record of an inspiring moment in time and an underrepresented culture. Livingston's film shows that drag performance is far more complex than an exaggeration of gender-the subjects in this documentary rely on ball culture to deconstruct race, class, and homophobia as well. Through intimate interviews and winding monologues, we learn the real life experiences of a variety of per­ formers. The subjects' willingness to speak candidly and thoroughly about their identities, experiences, and goals helps to shed light on a burgeoning subculture from the late 80s that was largely ignored by the straight world and the white gay mainstream. Before Madonna, before Glee, there was Paris is Burning.

This Is What Love In Action Looks Like

Ta les of the Waria DIR

Kathy Huang USA 57 min

in I n donesian with English subtitles

DIR

The vast island nation of I ndonesia is home to the worl d's largest Muslim pop ulation, part of which is a singular community of men who live openly as women - the waria. Before Islam came to South Sulawesi in the 17th century, it is said that the waria's historical role was to care for the king. Despite their past prestige, the waria today are not as respected when it comes to love and marriage. Bea uty salon worker Ria is one of many cou ntry boys who, ostracized i n their villages for dress­ i ng as wom en, arrived in the city of Makassa r to fi nd many others like herself: biological men who identify as women but abide by the di ctates of Islam not to undergo sex-cha nge surgery (Botox, however, is fine). This intimate and engaging documentary follows four waria as they negotiate complicated personal lives in unexpected configurations. Can one be pals with the knowing wife of her policeman lover? With the tempta­ tion of a lucrative affa i r with a Westerner, how will a work stint in Bali turn out? Ta les of past and future heartbreak haunt them, but they all pursue love and happi ness in the waria spirit. Tiara, who instructs contestants in catwalking at a waria supermodel pageant, sums it up: "God created me and my fellow warias to make this world more beautiful." PRECEDED BY:

Recessive OIR

From a tu rbulent child h ood , Mark protected his mother from worry- about a broken leg, an arrest, and various pra n ks. A teen with a penchant for making elaborate, goofy videos, we catch a gl i m pse of the unique charisma that earned Mark lifelong friends. High school friends, college friends, fraternity brothers, partn ers, fa mi ly, and his "gay parents" re mi ni sce about Mark, tracing his life up u ntil September 1 1 . With wrenching clarity, those closest to him recall the last moments they saw or spoke with h i m . Al ice heart­ breakingly tells of the phone call she received from the plane before the line went qu iet. Devastated by her loss but inspired by the memory of her son, Alice, a former U n ited Airlines flight atten­ da nt, became a nationally-known autho rity on airline safety and a cham pion of LGBT rights across the cou n­ try. Alice, who will attend this screening, is beloved by the gay rugby commun ity and remi nds them that Mark is always by thei r side in th is com pel ling portrait of pri­ vate grief in the midst of public devastation. - TRISTA KENDALL

According to a 2005 study undertaken by the Italian National Institute of Health , 100,000 children in Italy have at least one homosexual parent, and forty- nine percent of homosexual couples want to have children. It is also currently illegal in Italy for a same- sex couple to adopt a child. This documentary follows two couples who are involved, i n various ways, i n being a fam ily. Filmed in part by the kids themse lves, The Wolf in Shorts takes a decidedly personal perspective on the

issue of same- sex parenthood. The film is also very much a love story about the two couples who are drawn closer together even as they struggle to maintain a right to their existence as a family. - DOXA DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL, VANCOUVER

Clips from her films are projected back into the spaces where they were origi­ na lly filmed.
