    Reel Queer Film Series presents: Reaching for the Moon

    The Reel Queer Film Series at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center present a free community screening of Reaching for the Moon, a film the New York Times called "a drama about the tempestuous love affair between the American poet Elizabeth Bishop and the Brazilian landscape architect Carlota de Macedo Soares". Following the screening, Nandini Sikand, Associate Professor of Film & Media Studies at Lafayette College, will facilitate a talk back. 

    Winner of the Audience Award at The San Francisco International LGBTQ Film Festival, this sumptuous period piece recounts the mid-life years of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Elizabeth Bishop. In 1951, the then obscure woman writer decides to take a trip—”the geographic cure,” her friend Robert “Cal” Lowell (Treat Williams) teases. And so Elizabeth Bishop (Miranda Otto of The Lord of the Rings film trilogy) sets sail for Rio de Janeiro and a life-changing relationship with the wealthy, and very butch, architect Lota de Macedo Soares. Pampered by the extravagant Lota, Elizabeth writes, wins awards, and is feted by Rio society. But problems lurk: Elizabeth’s alcoholism, Lota’s difficulties building Rio’s Flamengo Park, and a government coup.

    Director Bruno Barreto beautifully captures the vibrant feel of design-conscious mid-century Brazil; however, it’s the sharp writing, smoldering on-screen chemistry, and stellar performances (particularly by Brazilian telenovela star Gloria Pires) that make this lavish big-screen adaptation of a messy, yet gloriously romantic, relationship so deeply satisfying.

    Watch the film's trailer here: 

    This is a sober social event. No alcohol will be served. 

     

    The Reel Queer Film Series is funded in part by support from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.

    Reviews of The HIV Monologues

    'Hot on the heels of the extremely successful Chemsex Monologues , comes another masterful meditation from author Pat Cash... one of the finest pieces of work to date from one of our absolute favourite authors... The HIV Monologues is a piece that, while full of optimism, doesn’t shy away from the very real prejudices that are still aimed at HIV positive people to this very day. It’s educational and informative, but at the play’s centre are characters that walk off the page and straight into our hearts.' Gay Times

    'The devastating impact of HIV has been explored a number of times before on stage...But none has taken this toxic subject by the short and curlies and really got under its skin in the way Patrick Cash has done here in HIV Monologues. Braver still is its title, a blatant refusal to shy away from the theme which lies within.' British Theatre Guide
