This Week in Philly: Queer Genius, The Right Stuff, White Heat, and more!
This week we're continuing to celebrate Pride with Lightbox Film Center's free screening of Queer Genius, a documentary about queer artists and "the communal possibilities of 'genius' from a particularly queer perspective." The program will also include a selection of nonfiction films that "queer" the form of documentary, "incorporation poetry, reenactment and found footage."
