SNEAK PREVIEW OF FILM LIVES: VISIBLE
Saturday, May 13, 2017
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Center on Halsted
Join us for a fascinating night of film, conversation, and historical treasures. We will be presenting a sneak preview of the film Lives: Visible, followed by an intimate conversation with the films creators and a viewing of memorabilia from the film. This event serves as a fundraiser for Center on Halsted's Community and Culture Department and is one night only!
Lesbians in a box… two thousand private snapshots hidden away for over fifty years reveal the rich history of Chicago’s working class butch/fem life in the pre-Stonewall era. Spanning four decades, from the 1930s to the early 1970s, the snapshots provide a rare look at a vanished and vibrant Lesbian culture: images of lovers and friends as they played, posed, serially switched partners, worked, partied, drank, and aged. Now we all take selfies; these women used a Brownie camera to tell the story of their community. Lives:Visible explores the ephemeral nature of culture and the power of the images we make.
