Full coverage of the Seattle Gay and Lesbian film festival can be found here.
This was a tough one, but the highlight for today is Out in the Night at 4:45 at the Egyptian. A documentary outlining the case of the “killer lesbian gang” who were involved in a conflict in 2006 outside Greenwich Village’s IFC Theater, where a dude ended up hospitalized for five days after being stabbed in the altercation. Out in the Night presents their side of the case, where they were shoved through the system and convicted due to bias in the system (racial, homophobic, sexist, etc). What makes this a must see of the day is that this will have guests in attendance.
The 12:30 slot goes to political docs. The gay doc is Limited Partnership, about a gay couple who have been together for 40 years and are still trying to get one of them his citizenship. States of Grace is about the founder of an HIV/AIDS clinic for the poor, who had an accident on the Golden Gate Bridge that severely impacted her body. States of Grace has guests in attendance.
2:30 is either the Girls’ Shorts shorts program or Silent Youth, a German coming out story. Girls Shorts has guests.
4:45 is Out in the Night, or the avant garde shorts program. The Avant Garde Program also has guests.
7:00 has Tiger Orange, about brothers reconnecting after a period of estrangement, and Letters to Anita/Living in the Overlap about lesbian civil rights activists. Guests are in attendance for both screenings, but Letters to Anita seems like the stronger choice.
9:30 brings us either What it Was, a non-linear lesbian story, or Club King, a documentary about a gay nightclub promoter. Club King has guests in attendance, and has an after party at Rebar (extra ticket required)
Midnight brings us Lyle, a lesbian edition of Rosemary’s Baby, which looks utterly fascinating. Guests also in attendance.
