ALICE WALKER: BEAUTY IN TRUTH

CONTINENTAL

BRIDEGROOM

BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR (LA VIE D’ADÈLE – CHAPITRES 1 & 2)

Alice Walker’s extraordinary journey from sharecropper’s daughter to activist, journalist, poet and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist of The Color Purple comes to vivid life in this compelling and inspirational documentary.

The Continental Bath and Health Club opened in 1968 and quickly became a landmark for gay liberation. The Baths became a social hotspot where New York’s cultural elite mingled among gay men to witness live performances from artists including Bette Midler, the Pointer Sisters, Labelle and Natalie Cole.

After the accidental death of his partner Tom Bridegroom, Shane Bitney Crone posted an online video titled It Could Happen To You, which has garnered 4 million views on YouTube. Bridegroom examines the divergent reactions of each man’s family to the young men’s relationship: Shane’s family is supportive while Tom’s family blames Shane for Tom’s homosexuality.
