Frameline Talk: Queer Legacies

SECTION: Frameline Talks | Free | Streaming

What happens to queer history when the archive is silent, emptied, or repressed? Queer documentarians are addressing gaps in the stories we tell about ourselves, unearthing previously unexplored chapters of our shared past. Hear from the Frameline45 filmmakers who have discovered and interpreted previously unsung legacies, as they discuss taking control of the queer historical narrative. Invited participants include film teams from P.S. Burn This Letter Please, Rebel Dykes, and Nelly Queen: The Life and Times of José Sarria.
