Two Films will be screened by Fresno Reel Pride at Fresno State on Thurs. March 25th in the Peters Education Center Auditorium, adjacent to the Student Recreation Center.
The first film, “Out in the Silence” will be screened at 5:00 p.m. “Out in the Silence” documents a newspaper’s announcement of filmmaker Joe Wilson’s wedding to Dean Hamer. It ignites a firestorm of controversy in his small hometown (Oil City, Penn.) and a plea for help from the mother of a gay teen being tormented at school.
Screening hosted by Clovis North GSA. Admission is free and includes a special appearance by Joe Wilson, filmmaker. A question and answer discussion will follow the screening.
The second film, “KABOOM” by Gregg Araki will be screened at 7:00 p.m. “KABOOM” is about the character, Smith’s everyday life in the dorm – hanging out with his arty, sarcastic best friend Stella, hooking up with a beautiful free spirit named London, lusting for his gorgeous but dim surfer roommate Thor – all gets turned upside-down after one fateful, terrifying night.
Screening sponsors are Bulldog Pride Fund, Central California Alliance, Gay Central Valley, Rainbow Delegation and United Student Pride. MPAA unrated, no one under the age of 17 will be admitted without a parent or guardian. Admission is $10 general and $5 for members and students.
