Queer|Art|Pride: Short Films from Queer|Art|Mentorship
Screening Room at Wythe Hotel (enter on Wythe Ave)
Still from "Grit and Grind" (co-directed by Sasha Wortzel)
Queer|Art|Pride will donate 5% of the ticket proceeds to Visual AIDS!
An afternoon program of short films by alumni of the Queer|Art|Mentorship program covers a wide range of subjects in a variety of formats, including: a documentary about The Clit Club set in New Yorks Meatpacking District in the 1990s (Grit and Grind, codirected by Sasha Wortzel); an animated film about a zombie nurse who struggles with her identity and job (SANDRA, dir. Mylo Mendez); and a narrative film about a young Mennonite who risks his life to find love and freedom in the city (Unicorn, dir. Rodrigo Bellott). Other films on this program include Mami y Yo y Mi Gallito directed by Arisledya Dilone and The Strange Ones co-directed by Lauren Wolkstein, which inspired the 2017 feature film of the same title to be released soon.
Queer|Art|Pride is organized as part of Home For Pride at Wythe Hotel. The program, curated by Vanessa Haroutunian, comprises an afternoon of short films and two evenings of feature film screenings by alumni filmmakers of Queer|Art|Mentorship. Other festivitiesduring Home For Pride include the opening of a new lobby art installation by Caroline Wells Chandler; a Friday night party hosted by Will G.I.A.N.T. Sheridan; and drag queen happy hours at Wythe’s rooftop bar hosted by The Dauphine of Bushwick, Horrorchata, and Gayletter.
