By Mike Everleth ⋅ February 24, 2015

Audience watching a film at the Millennium Film Workshop

February 28, 2015
7:30 p.m.
Millennium Film Workshop
119 Ingraham St., Suite 126
Brooklyn, NY 11237
(Entrance on Porter St. at Johnson St.)

Jerry Tartaglia will be in person at the Millennium Film Workshop to screen selected work from his lengthy film career, including a special live performance of his expanded cinema project The Projectionist.

Tartaglia is a pioneer of Queer Identity cinema and this program will include some of his pioneering earlier work, such as Ecce Homo (1989), a meditation on watching queer sex; and 1969 (1991), a personal — and perhaps unreliable — remembrance.

Other films screening include a 16mm projection of The Mystery School, which is crafted from educational films; and A Short History of the Future, which reconstructs Das Blaue Licht (1933) by Leni Riefenstahl.
