Join ZAMI NOBLA and First Existentialist Church for a screening of “The Owls,” a film by award-winning filmmaker Cheryl Dunye. The film begins at 4 p.m. and suggested donations are a $1-$10 sliding scale. No one will be turned away.
Described as a “generational anthem for Older Wiser Lesbians,'” the film “The Owls” looks at the lives of lesbians approaching middle age and who have seen the revolution and dreams they believed in so strongly in their younger years now eluding them.
On top of that, the new generation of younger queer women have no respect for the contributions they have made to their community and these women, these OWLs, are now caught in a culture where there is no place for them setting in motion the desire of the filmmakers to portray how “OWLs are facing a unique set of circumstances that have yet to be compassionately or truthfully addressed.
And what better way to tell this kind of story than through sex, passion, mystery and, well, a murder mystery and psychological thriller.
Doors open 3:30 p.m. and the film starts at 4 p.m. sharp.
Popcorn and refreshments available for purchase.
There will be a discussion after the film. 404 647-4754 for more info.
