In Celebration of Alex Sichel 

In June, filmmaker Alex Sichel died at the age of 50, after a 3-year battle against breast cancer. A central figure in the early years of New Queer Cinema, Alex was also a screenwriter, a beloved teacher at both Columbia and NYU, and a fiery, opinionated member of both the Queer and Film Communities. In her honor QAF is proud to present her gorgeous first feature, ALL OVER ME, a coming-of-age drama — born out of the riot grrrl movement — about a teenager from Hell’s Kitchen (To Die For’s Alison Folland) who falls in love with her bad-girl best friend (Tara Subkoff, of the cult fashion line, Imitation of Christ). The evening will also include a short clip from A FILM ABOUT ANNA, the extraordinary film Alex was working on about her illness at the time of her death. Many of those closest to Alex, including her sister and screenwriter Sylvia Sichel, actress Folland, and producer Dolly Hall, will join us for this special, community-wide remembrance.
