Jason And Shirley: OUTFEST 2015

Event_Jason-Shirley-OUTFEST

The California LGBT Arts Alliance is a proud community sponsor of:

Jason and Shirley, OUTFEST 2015
Saturday, July 11
9:30 pm
REDCAT Theatre
631 W 2nd St, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Directed By: Stephen Winter. In his newest experimental feature, Stephen Winter (CHOCOLATE BABIES) fictionalizes the infamous 12-hour film shoot that resulted in Shirley Clarke’s trailblazing work of cinéma vérité, PORTRAIT OF JASON (1967). Jason Holliday (Jack Waters), an outspoken and flamboyant African American hustler, recounts his trials and tribulations in NYC’s 1960s gay counterculture. As the shoot wears on, Shirley (Sarah Schulman) and her crew goad and provoke one of documentary cinema’s most remarkable subjects, and we are granted a glimpse at the intricacies of pride and survival in a far less permissive climate.
PRE-SCREENING RECEPTION: REDCAT Lounge
