Post-screening Q&A with director Stephen Winter

 
Chocolate Babies

Dir. Stephen Winter
1997, 83min
With Claude E. Sloan, Jon Kit Lee, Dudley Findlay

 

A band of queer, self-described “raging, atheist, meat-eating, HIV-positive, colored terrorists” fight back against homophobic conservative politicians on the streets of New York in Stephen Winter’s wild guerrilla satire. Calling out government apathy to the AIDS crisis—particularly as it affected communities of color—Chocolate Babies blends exuberant camp and searing political anger into a radical statement of black queer power.

 
Anemone Me

Dirs. Suzan-Lori Parks & Bruce Hainley
1990, 31min

 

In a village on the coast of Maine, a fisherman works to provide for his wife and their handsome blind son. One day, a beautiful merman (Peter Hermann) rises out of the sea and develops a strange, magical attraction to the boy.
