Reel in the Closet – screening & panel – FREE!
Filmmaker Stu Maddux wants to bring us out of the closet, again. This delightful documentary explores the films, tapes and videos that are languishing in the closets and attics of so many LGBT people and their families. Reels and reels of home movies are showcased, from as early as the 1930’s, and they chronicle LGBT history through the intimate lens of extraordinary, everyday people documenting their lives. These tapes and films capture everything from ordinary, mundane events to very personal views of monumental moments in our history.
Followed by a panel discussion with Director Stu Maddux; Co-founder of the LGBT initiative at USF, Dr. David Johnson; and curator of the USF LGBT collections, Matt Knight. We will discuss the exciting progress made in the LGBT initiative at USF and how it relates to LGBT lives and our histories and legacies.
