Milwaukee LGBT Film/Video Festival Free Screening: Reel in the Closet
October 18, 2015 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
A valentine to film archivists everywhere, the documentary Reel in the Closet (Stu Maddox, 2015) unspools home movies and the rediscovered filmed records of LGBT+ lives otherwise consigned to a forgotten past.
Entrancing in its imagery of an overlooked queer mundane and energizing in its sharing of records of actions, marches, and other news events, Stu Maddox’s compilation recirculates a broader LGBT+ history while enacting a manifesto for paying attention to the stories of our elders and to the recordings and artifacts they left behind.
UWM Libraries are the campus partner for this Milwaukee LGBT Film/Video Festival presentation.
The screening is free and open to the public.
