Dir. Steve De Jarnatt, Anthony Edwards and Mare Winningham present 'MIRACLE MILE'

Dir. Steve De Jarnatt, Anthony Edwards and Mare Winningham present 'MIRACLE MILE'

Steve De Jarnatt, Anthony Edwards and Mare Winningham in conversation with Bilge Ebiri.

Jazz musician Anthony Edwards is walking on clouds, coming off of a successful first date with waitress Mare Winningham, when a voice on the other end of a ringing pay phone informs him that the U.S. has just entered into nuclear war and The End is Nigh. What follows is a frantic real-time scramble up and down Wilshire Boulevard, in hopes of making the most of what may be the last night on earth. An utterly singular independent vision from writer-director de Jarnatt, who will be on hand to discuss his romantic, doom-tinged fever dream of L.A.

1988 / 87min / 35mm

Book signing with Brandon Harris following 'Crooklyn'

Brandon Harris to introduce the film on June 9. Following the screening, Harris will be signing copies of his book, Making Rent in Bed-Stuy.

Described as a “a nose-to-the-sidewalk paean to Bedford-Stuyvesant as it was in Lee’s ‘70s youth,” by Brooklyn Magazine, Spike Lee’s period drama centers on Troy (Zelda Harris), the youngest of five children in the working class Carmichael clan, circa 1972. This gentle, semi-autobiographical tale, written with his siblings Joie and Cinque, recalls with aplomb a season of jump rope games, Knicks super-fandom and the burgeoning influence of Soul Train.

1994 / 115min / 35mm
DIRECTOR: SPIKE LEE
CAST: ZELDA HARRIS, ALFRE WOODARD, DELROY LINDO, DAVID PATRICK KELLY

Sebastián Silva and Brandon Harris present 'Nasty Baby'

Q&A with Sebastián Silva and Brandon Harris

Shot in neighboring Fort Greene, Sebastián Silva’s genre-bending shocker, in which a young gay couple (Silva & TV On the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe) live in relative bobo tranquility, except for the early morning leaf-blowing escapades of the seemingly unhinged Bishop (Reg E. Cathey), is perhaps the most salient glimpse of the wages and repressed stakes of central Brooklyn gentrification that American indie cinema has yet produced.

Book signing with Daniel Nicoletta following 'The Times of Harvey Milk'

Monday June 19 7:00PM
Book signing with Daniel Nicoletta following 'The Times of Harvey Milk'

Following a screening of The Times of Harvey Milk, photographer Daniel Nicoletta will be signing copies of his newly published LGBT: San Francisco.

Daniel Nicoletta (born 1954) has been a leading chronicler of the LGBT civil rights movement in San Francisco over the last 40 years. LGBT: San Francisco is the first book dedicated to his powerful photographs documenting the burgeoning lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender mecca that was San Francisco in the 1970s through to the present.

Nicoletta is best known for his iconic images of Harvey Milk, one of the world’s first openly gay elected officials, who was assassinated by a homophobic colleague in 1978. Nicoletta portrayed glittering drag queens, the alternative theater world and the steadfast bravery of same-sex couples trying to live their lives amid often adverse cultural sea changes. Today, Nicoletta continues to document the reverberations of Milk’s legacy. He serves as a key point person for LGBT civil rights and Milk-related research. In 2014, one of Nicoletta’s photographs was used on a U.S. Harvey Milk Forever Stamp. LGBT: San Francisco is an essential gay history and a stunning photographic work that is not to be missed.
