Join POV in partnership with IFP at the Photoville Beer Garden in Brooklyn Bridge Park on Thursday, September 22nd at 7PM for a conversation on LGBTQ stories in film, featuring sneak-preview clips from From This Day Forward and the short film Pink Boy, broadcasting on POV October 10th. Filmmakers Sharon Shattuck, Eric Rockey and producer Martha Shane will join Emily McGranachan of the Family Equality Council for a panel discussion. When Sharon was in the throes of middle school, her father came out as transgender. Her film seeks a deeper understanding of how her parents’ marriage, and their family, survived intact. Pink Boy is an intimate story of a gender nonconforming child in conservative rural Florida. We’ll also present animated shorts from the renowned oral history project StoryCorps.
The evening is free and open to the public, but arrive early as seating is limited and available on a first-come first-serve basis. From This Day Forward is an IFP Documentary Lab alum and POV is pleased to present the event in collaboration with IFP’s Film Week. For more information, visit the Photoville event page.
To see From This Day Forward in full, join POV in an evening with the Harmony Institute on Friday, September 30th at the Parsons School of Design. The evening will feature a screening of the film, a Q&A panel with Sharon Shattuck and networking opportunities. Drinks are served at 6PM, and the screening to follow at 7PM. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, and to RSVP, visit the event page.
