This event has ended.

Just in time for Gay Pride Month, 92YTribeca presents QUEER/ART/FILM, a new series of all things hybrid and poly-sexual. Curated by Butt Magazine contributing editor Adam Baran and filmmaker Ira Sachs, the series invites some of the most exciting, innovative (and homosexual) artists from the dance/performance/film/visual and literary arts to present and discuss their favorite films, in rare prints, on the big screen.

The series asks the question: How does film create a link from one queer generation to the next, from John Kelly to Jean Cocteau, from 8 1/2 to Paris is Burning, from Marlon Riggs to Chantal Akerman? Join us every Thursday in June and bi-weekly in the months to follow, to explore these unexpected pathways from one artist to the next.


Ackerman's 1974 film is among her few overtly lesbian works. What makes this singular film especially endearing is that a very young Ackerman herself plays the lead, and through performance establishes the fundamentals of her highly original filmic style. Presented by author Sarah Schulman.
