QFEST: OUT IN THE NIGHT
Friday, July 25, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
QFEST and the Houston Museum of African American Culture (HMAAC) are partnering to bring you the riveting documentary Out in the Night for the 2014 QFest: The 18th Annual International Houston GLBT-Q Film Festival.
Out in the Night is a new documentary by blair dorosh-walther that examines the 2006 case of The New Jersey 4.
Through the lives of four young women, Out in the Night reveals how their race, gender identity and sexuality became criminalized in the mainstream news media and criminal legal system.
Under the neon lights in a gay-friendly neighborhood of New York City, four young African-American lesbians are violently and sexually threatened by a man on the street. They defend themselves against him and are charged and convicted in the courts and in the media as a 'Gang of Killer Lesbians'.
A Q & A with Out in the Night Director Blair Dorosh-Walther and Producer Giovanna Chesler moderated by Sirius XM Talk Show Host Eddie Robinson will take place following the screening.
Although this screening is free to the community, RSVP is required due to limited seating.
