Two locally produced documentaries, Beyond Gay – The Politics of Pride and She’s a Boy I Knew, are set to screen at this year’s Pride Movie Night on Thursday, July 29th.
The Vancouver 2010 Pride Grand Marshalls will host the two movies that are aligned with this year’s Pride theme: Liberate and will include discussions with the Directors and participants.
Beyond Gay – The Politics of Pride
This feature length award-winning documentary follows the Vancouver Pride Society’s (VPS) President Ken Coolen as he travels to places where Pride is steeped in protest. Despite hundreds of thousands of people cheering in the streets, Pride is much more than a parade or party, it’s a fight for human rights. Don’t miss this, is will change your Pride.
She’s a Boy I Knew
This is a compelling DIY, gender bending, feel good film directed by a transsexual lesbian you’ve seen all year. They say that when someone comes out of the closet, they can’t stop talking about it. Vancouver filmmaker Gwen Haworth not only talked…she made a movie. It is an exploration into the filmmaker’s process of transition from biological male to female, from Steven to Gwen.
