Stonewall Film Screening (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, June 21, 2019
Filmmakers Kate Davis & David Heilbroner talk about their documentary Stonewall Uprising that will be shown on Wednesday June 26th at 8:30P at the Washington Square Arch in Greenwich Village in NYC. Stonewall Uprising is the fabulous documentary chronicling the historic turning point in our LGBTQ civil rights movement. The film is based on David Carter’s Stonewall: The Riots that Sparked the Gay Revolution & told through interviews with Stonewall patrons, reporters & the policeman who led the raid. Stonewall Uprising recalls the fervently hostile climate in which our LGBTQ community was forced to live in 1969 and the events that led to what one reporter called the LGBTQ community’s “Rosa Parks moment.” When asked what they hope to accomplish with this documentary Davis stated, “We hope that the film will help a general population actually across the country & maybe the world to incorporate gay history into American history.” Heilbroner concluded, “One of the things I hope our film can do besides reminding people where the pride parade comes from which is directly out of the Stonewall riots but also we should be grateful how far we have come even though we have a long way to go. It’s amazing how far America has come in the last fifty years.” The screening is being presented by the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment (MOME), the NYC Parks Department & American Experience Films/PBS. Stonewall Uprising is also available on PBS’s American Experience streaming.
