Thursday, June 15, 2017

7–11 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Enjoy an evening with Carrie Hawks and Reina Gossett, two artists working in animation, featuring screenings of their films, a discussion, and a musical performance. Here's the full lineup:

  • Opening performance by Quantum Split, whose song is featured in black enuf*
  • Screening of black enuf* (Carrie Hawks, 2016, 22 min.): A multimedia animated documentary, black enuf* tells the story of “queer oddball” filmmaker Carrie Hawks’s family and explores their quest for undeniable approval and acceptance of their racial identity
  • Screening of The Personal Things (Reina Gossett, 2016, 3 min.): Activist Miss Major Griffin-Gracy reflects on today’s trans activism and her personal experiences
  • Preview of Reina Gossett’s upcoming feature film Happy Birthday Marsha (Reina Gossett and Sasha Wortzel, post-production, 4 min. [excerpt]), which tells the story of activists Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera in the hours leading up to the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City
  • Conversation between the directors
