QUEER|ART|FILM Black Summer Nights 2: Summer in the City
Friday, May 4 - Monday, August 20, 2018
In 2015, QUEER|ART|FILM curators Ira Sachs and Adam Baran tapped film director and producer Stephen Winter and poet and performance artist Pamela Sneed to organize the first edition of “Black Summer Nights,” featuring four monthly screenings presented by black LGBTQ artists who were invited to reflect on black queer experience and its representations in cinema. This Summer, Winter and Sneed are back for a second edition of the beloved special season, this year with a particular focus on stories set in and around New York City! For each event, a different black queer artist has been invited to screen a film that has deeply inspired and influenced them, and then participate in a post-screening discussion that will further explore issues related to black queer life and art.
