This weekend director Stu Maddux is rolling out the red carpet at IFC in Greenwich village. The NYC Premiere of Reel in the Closet, a documentary starring ordinary LGBT people, is opening the door to a “treasure trove of rare home movies made by gay people – some dating to the 1930s – that have long languished in the back of people’s closets.” Featuring archivists by the likes of the Library of Congress, the Royal Copenhagen Library, and the GLBT Historical society (to name a few), the documentary brings to light how the LGBT community lived before the civil rights movement, during the Stonewall Riots, and after Harvey Milk’s assassination. The premiere of Reel in the Closet is part of DOC NYC, and will take place Sat. November 14 at 2:15pm at the IFC Center.
