LGBT Film Reel In The Closet

By Charlotte Robinson, June 21, 2015
There’s a fabulous World Premiere of Filmmaker Stu Maddux (Gen Silent ) newest documentary Reel In The Closet at The Castro Theatre Sunday June 21st at 11A PST with a reception following the film at the GLBT History Museum, 4127 18th Street in San Francisco from 12:30P to 2:30P. Reel In The Closet is a feature-length documentary that transports us into LGBT life of the past through rare home movies of the people who lived it. Many of the moving images in this film are shown for the first time. Many more wait to be discovered in people’s closets but are unfortunately being thrown out- sometimes on purpose by homophobic relatives. Maddux shifts his lens to focus on rare & important early film & video records of LGBTQ life in America. Reel in the Closet brings to light a trove of historical footage from an era when gay life was mostly left undocumented—fascinating & often poignant moving images from the 1930s through the AIDS epidemic, which are at risk of being lost to history without the efforts of the archivists who work to find, preserve & catalogue them. If you can’t make the June 21st showing it will be screened again on June 27th at 11A PST at The Victoria Theatre followed by a reception at the West of Pecos 550 Valencia Street in San Francisco from 12:30P to 2:30P with food & refreshments.
