Hosted Screening

A Bigger Splash (1974)

Saturday June 22 @ 4:00 pm
Metrograph, 7 Ludlow St
New York, NY 10002 United States

Dir. Jack Hazan, UK, 1974, 106 mins
New 4K Restoration
An intimate and innovative film about English-born, often California-based artist David Hockney and his work, honoring its subject through creative risk-taking. Hazan creates an improvisatory narrative-nonfiction hybrid featuring Hockney, a wary participant, as well as his circle of friends, capturing the agonized end of the lingering affair between Hockney and his muse, an American named Peter Schlesinger. The result is at once a time capsule of hedonistic gay life in the 1970s, an honest-yet-tender depiction of gay male romance that dispenses with the then-current narratives of self-hatred and self-pity, an invaluable view of art history in action, and a record of artistic creation that is itself a work of art.
Introduction by NewFest’s director of programming, Nick McCarthy

Coming Out Again

Gay USA (1977)

Wednesday June 26 @ 7:00 pm
Quad Cinema, 34 W 13th St
New York, NY 10011 United States

Dir. Arthur J. Bressan Jr., 1977, USA, 78 mins
Filmed in a single day on June 26, 1977 in multiple locations throughout the country, this tremendous time capsule captures a variety of pride parades across the landscape of American and offers an overview of the issues facing the community. A myriad of camera operators and interviewers took to the streets in New York, San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago, Houston, and Los Angeles, and the footage was lovingly compiled and edited together by Arthur J. Bressan Jr. (BUDDIES), creating a kaleidoscopic portrait that continues to prove why celebrating our collective pride, and expressing it to the world, still matters.
With Roe Bressan in person
