‘Noah’s Arc’ director brings latest film to Atlanta

The Skinny

Gay filmmaker Patrik-Ian Polk of “Noah's Arc” and “Punks” fame will release his latest feature “The Skinny” for a special one-week showcase in Atlanta.

“The Skinny” centers on a group of four young black gay men and their best lesbian friend who arrange a reunion in New York City a year after graduating from Brown University.

Though the film is a comedy, Polk says that serious issues affecting the LGBT community are addressed in the film, including HIV/AIDS, infidelity and date-rape.
