examining the Black image in genre film
Friday, January 21, 2022 6:30 pm PST Facebook Live
We’re back with a new year of Fade to Black programming!
For the January Fade to Black, we move into the genre of Documentaries with 2020’s Disclosure, executive produced by Laverne Cox.
This film explores the decades-long history of the depiction of trans people in films and television and how that affects the real-life of trans people all over the world. Featuring some of the top voices in film and media, this documentary seeks to reconcile how so many could love a medium that doesn’t seem to love them back.
Isabella Price, our Film Programs Manager and Fade to Black curator will be joined by Ebo Barton of The Lavender Project to talk about the documentary and how the media affects the way that trans people are treated interpersonally and legislatively.
Please watch the documentary ahead of the panel, it is available exclusively on Netflix. A suggested donation of $10 can be made at www.langstonseattle.org/donate
