Ahead Of The Curve Virtual Film Event

By Charlotte Robinson, April 22, 2022

Docs In Progress is presenting the fabulous feature documentary “Ahead Of The Curve” for their next installment of the Silver Screen Series. There will be a live Q&A with the filmmakers Jen Rainin & Rivkah Beth on Monday May 2nd at 7:30P to 10P EST via Zoom. “Ahead Of The Curve”was co-produced & co-directed by Jen Rainin & Rivkah Beth Medow. The film is based on the true story of Franco Stevens the founding publisher of Curve Magazine the iconic international lesbian lifestyle publication. Ahead Of The Curve traces the power of lesbian visibility & community from the early ‘90s to present day through the story of Franco’s founding of Curve magazine. Decades later in the wake of a disabling injury Franco learns that Curve will fold within the year & questions the relevance of the magazine in the face of accelerating threats to our LGBTQ+ community. To forge a path forward Franco reaches out to women working in today’s queer spaces to understand what queer women need today & how Curve can continue to serve the community. The award-winning documentary features Melissa Etheridge, Lea DeLaria, Jewelle Gomez & Franco Stevens. The Silver Screen Series is intended as a gathering place where documentary films can be shown & shared. The documentary will be available to watch beginning Thursday April 28th through Tuesday May 3rd once you register for this free event. To Register…  I talked to Jen Rainin & Franco Stevens in 2021 about what they hope to accomplish with “Ahead Of The Curve” in this exclusive chat. LISTEN
