 Steven Millhauser and Annie Proulx

In a rare public appearance, two of America’s most original writers share a stage for the very first time. Steven Millhauser “has never forgotten what it was like to be an 11-year-old boy, fueled by curiosity and wonder, trying to make the banal world around him fit his comic-book image of how things should be,” wrote The Washington Post. Annie Proulx is author of The Shipping News and Brokeback Mountain. Her “sense of story is admirable, her sentences are artful, and she writes like a demon,” wrote The New York Times.

‘Brokeback Mountain’ shirts worn by Ledger, Gyllenhaal head to museum

 Iconic Shirts From Brokeback Mountain
on Display in Autry’s Imagination Gallery


Two intertwined shirts worn by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in the film
represent struggle between heritage and acceptance in gay cowboy culture

On display starting August 5, 2009

Los Angeles (July 27, 2009) —The Autry National Center is proud to announce the installation of
the two intertwined shirts worn by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in the Focus Features 2005
groundbreaking film Brokeback Mountain, also starring Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway.

The shirts will be displayed as part of a reinstallation of the Contemporary Westerns case in the
Autry’s Imagination Gallery. Directed by Oscar winner Ang Lee, the film is adapted from the
short story by Pulitzer Prize–winning author E. Annie Proulx in her Close Range: Wyoming
Stories collection. The shirts are on loan from collector, producer, and sociopolitical commentator
Tom Gregory.

The Western genre is an American art form that has played a crucial role in the development of
American popular culture. Putting the Western into a larger historical context, the Imagination
Gallery shows how the genre has evolved over the last one hundred years in response to social
and cultural changes taking place in America. The iconic shirts are at the center of the
Contemporary Westerns case in order to highlight Brokeback Mountain’s significance in keeping
the Western genre alive and thriving in the new millennium, and also to spotlight the LGBT
community’s struggle for safety and inclusion in the rural, Western communities from where
many originate yet often feel forced to abandon.

Noted author Gregory Hinton conceived the idea of displaying the iconic shirts at the Autry while
doing research for his fifth novel, Night Rodeo. “I noticed they were missing,” Hinton told
Gregory when he tracked him down on his website on New Year’s Day 2009. Mr. Gregory, owner
of the iconic shirts, won them in a 2006 charity auction. At their first meeting, Mr. Gregory
confessed to Mr. Hinton that after he bought them, he had assumed he would be hearing from
museums offering to display the shirts. No one called until Mr. Hinton did, three years later.
“My feelings were hurt,” Mr. Gregory admitted. “Not for me, but for the shirts, for what they
represent,” he said. On August 5, 2009, six months after the idea was first presented to the
Autry, the intertwined shirts worn by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal will be displayed at the
museum.

Accompanying the shirts in the case are mannequins of Steve McQueen from the historical epic
Tom Horn (1980) and Jeff Bridges from the revisionist Western Wild Bill (1995), along with the
gun belts and revolvers worn by Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, and Martin Short in the comedy
¡Three Amigos! (1986). A special section devoted to the career of actor-director Clint Eastwood
includes mannequins from Pale Rider (1985) and Unforgiven (1992).

The Autry seeks to explore all the peoples of the American West, and the exhibition of the shirts
is part of a larger attempt to examine the LGBT community’s contribution to the West and the
Western genre. The Autry is currently in negotiations to house the archives of the International
Gay Rodeo Association, and an October panel about what it means to be gay in the West is also
in the works.

This was originally posted by Lynne on BetterMost. 

The event is opened to DCF members who may be in the area as well, so I'm posting it here.  Any updates that appear on BM will be placed here as well.

James McMurtry, Larry McMurtry's son, and a famous singer-songwriter in his own right, is playing at Johnny D's in Somerville, MA on Saturday night, 9/26/09.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_McMurtry

James is credited with writing Water, Walking Jesus, and Lynne would love to ask him if there is more to that hymn and if he'll sing it for us.   

Lynne is starting with dinner reservation for four at 8:15 pm, though she'd love to increase that number substantially .

I believe the cover charge is $12/each and a minimum of $10 food/drink and we get to keep our table throughout the performance.  The show starts at 9:45 pm. 

I knew James McMurtry's music long before I knew anything about Brokeback Mountain - I think he's become the embodiment of what is called Americana music, specifically anti-Nashville-commercialism.  Rather his music has smart lyrics and is very socially aware.

The New York Public Library Honors Three Distinguished Staff Members at Annual Library Lions Gala, Monday, November 2, 2009

“Brokeback Mountain”author Annie Proulx, Eloise illustrator Hilary Knight honored alongside librarians David Smith and Julia Chang; Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg bestows honor on career specialist Janice Moore-Smith


The New York Public Library’s 2009 Library Lions gala pays tribute to its own homegrown “lions” this year, the true treasures of the Library. Three members of the accomplished staff, whose dedication and expertise have made an impact on innumerable lives, will be honored on Monday, November 2, 2009.

This year’s gala recognizes David Smith, reference librarian at the Library for 31 years, honored alongside renowned writer Annie Proulx, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Shipping News and “Brokeback Mountain”; Julia Chang, Supervising Librarian for Children’s Programs, honored with writer and illustrator Hilary Knight, best known for illustrating the Eloise series; and career specialist Janice Moore-Smith, honored by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

http://www.nypl.org/press/releases/?article_id=339 (http://www.nypl.org/press/releases/?article_id=339)


Library Lions is The New York Public Library’s most important annual event and one of the most anticipated dinners on New York City’s social calendar. Each year Library Lions honors several distinguished individuals for outstanding achievements in their respective fields of arts, letters, and scholarship.

Honorees have included such eminent figures as Renée Fleming, John Hope Franklin, Orhan Pamuk, David Remnick, Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., Martin Scorsese, Tom Stoppard, Elie Wiesel, and Oprah Winfrey.

This year’s gala will depart from tradition and salute those who work on the front lines of the Library—three outstanding librarians who have distinguished themselves in research librarianship, children’s services, and career counseling. Each staff member will be honored alongside a luminary in their field: Annie Proulx, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Shipping News and “Brokeback Mountain,” will be paired with a senior research librarian; Hilary Knight, illustrator of the Eloise children’s books, will be honored alongside a children’s librarian; and Mayor Michael Bloomberg will help honor a job-search specialist.

This brilliant, black tie gala attracts a high-profile crowd of more than 600 writers, celebrities, and government and corporate leaders, generating a great deal of press coverage in periodicals such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, The New York Times, The New York Sun, New York Magazine, and the International Herald Tribune.

http://www.nypl.org/librarylions/ (http://www.nypl.org/librarylions/)


Annie Proulx, who was born in Norwich, Connecticut, has led a peripatetic life and traveled extensively. She learned to read when she was four years old, and soon after was taken to the local library, one built with funding from philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, where she discovered that the fabulous riches of books were available to everyone. Ms. Proux planned to read all the books in that first library. Wherever she lived, she knew how to get to the library and every week dragged home, sometimes literally, a box of books. One of the high points of her childhood in rural Vermont was the visit of the bookmobile, a library on wheels, from which one could borrow books and keep them until the bookmobile’s return.

Ms. Proulx began writing when she was in her 50s and has won many literary awards, including the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for Close Range: Wyoming Stories, the 1993 National Book Award for Fiction and the 1993 Irish Times International Fiction Prize, both for The Shipping News, and the 1993 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction for Postcards. She currently divides her life and work between Wyoming and New Mexico; her interests include history, archaeology, geology, and literature. Her story “Brokeback Mountain,” which originally appeared in The New Yorker, was made into an Academy Award–winning film. Ms. Proulx is working on a memoir about conservation efforts at Bird Cloud, the Wyoming home she shares with her four children.

“Libraries have been entwined throughout my life….For me, libraries supplied a lifetime of learning and pleasure and taught me how to write.”

I just got word that the panel discussion will take place December 13 from 2 to 5pm. It’s called Whatever Happened to Ennis del Mar? We do not have the panelists lined up yet but I’ll keep you posted. There will be a total of 4 panel discussions over a 12 month period.

On December 13th, 2009, Whatever Happened to Ennis del Mar? will be the first public LGBT program inspired by the installation of the iconic shirts from  “Brokeback Mountain.”  In this initial symposium, we bring together experts and advocates to explore the provocative question, “Whatever Happened to Ennis del Mar?”  In particular, that query invites commentary from a variety of perspectives about the history of homosexuality and its representation in the American West before, during, and after the era depicted in “Brokeback Mountain.”

Monday night a very special event is happening at New Conservatory Theatre Center. The City’s very own “Empress of Entertainment” Jan Wahl is presenting Reel Fabulous – LGBT In Hollywood. This is the Jan Wahl we all love best – The Maven of Movies dishing out an evening of stories and clips documenting Queer presence in showbiz. That’s right! Behind AND in front of the cameras. There will be stories and clips from films directed by, written by, and/or starring LGBT artists and technicians. And it’s about the great stars of Hollywood who knew one when they saw one. What Jan wants to know is … who had an impact on you?!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The show is going to be about my own favorites. I’ll talk a little bit about the history – as I know it. But this will be a very personal look at everything. Big Eden is my favorite movie ever done about Gay men. It’s like a Frank Capra movie. Again, I’m coming from the point of view as an old movie queen. That’s what I love – Classic Hollywood. In Big Eden the whole town gets together and tries to make this relationship happen with these two men. One thing I love about the film is that it shows how Gay men come in all shapes and sizes and colors. It’s just very romantic. Another is the original La Cage Aux Folles with Michel Serrault and Ugo Tognazzi. The reason I love it so much is that they raise the son together. I don’t like The Bird Cage because they never concentrate on how important that relationship was. That pissed me off.

Another favorite is The Dresser. And, of course, Brokeback Mountain. There was a huge change in the world when that came out. I like to celebrate great Gay men of the movies – like director George Cukor, and Terence McNally who wrote The Ritz and Love! Valour! Compassion!, and John Schlesinger. I was lucky enough to meet him a couple of times and interview. He was a doll. Also, Vincent Minnelli, who was a famous bisexual. But not to me. He was totally Gay and always will be. And especially with Roger Edens in there. He was so amazing with what he did for Judy Garland. I doubt we’d even have Judy Garland without Roger Edens.

"Recount" producer Michael Hausman returns to Jacksonville for award

Michael Hausman got to like Jacksonville when he came to the city to make "Recount" for HBO. The film, set in Florida during the aftermath of the 2000 elections, remains easily the best ever made in the city - it won a bunch of awards, including three Emmys and a Golden Globe for Laura Dern's portrayal of Katherine Harris. A bonus for Hausman, the producer of the film: While he was here, he became a Jaguars fan.

The affable New Yorker returns to the city Saturday to get an Lifetime Achievement Award from the Jacksonville Film Festival, during which he'll do a Q&A and spin some stories. He's happy, too, to note that there's a Jaguars home game the next day. You can bet he's sticking around for that.

Facilitators


Larry Weller, S BA 70, S MA 73, was born and educated in Montreal. Most of Weller’s adult life was spent in the classroom, at Concordia (Sir George Williams University) in the early 1970s and the rest at John Abbott College in Ste.-Anne-de-Bellevue, Que. He retired from John Abbott College in 2008. Except for a two year hiatus from 2000-2002, when he worked in the film industry, Weller spent his entire career teaching English literature and film, from the traditional to the contemporary. His principal interest is to examine the moral and ethical issues that confront us throughout our lives and how the choices we make determine who we are. And, how it is through language—be it written or imaged—that these choices and their consequences become manifest.

In the last several years, particularly since his retirement, Weller has had the opportunity to address book and film clubs throughout Montreal. In addition, he has delivered several talks at the Segal Centre and Cummings Centre in Montreal and the Hudson Theatre in Hudson, Que. In these lectures, Weller has looked at the nature of evil and hatred, the role of the family, the portrayal of woman and minorities in the arts, and contemporary anti-Semitism.

Over the years, Weller has published several critical articles and some poetry. He is currently chasing the completion of a novel.
 
Brian Lewis is an associate professor of History at McGill University. He holds a BA from Oxford University in the U.K. and a PhD from Harvard University in Boston, Mass. Lewis has been at McGill since 1995.

He specializes in 18th-20th century British history, with a developing interest in the history of sexuality. As well as British history, he teaches courses on the world wars, nationalism and the history of sexuality. Lewis was Chair of McGill’s Department of History from 2002 to 2007.

Lewis is now Chair of the Sexual Diversity Studies Advisory Committee. His work includes books on the middle classes of 19th-century Lancashire mill towns and on the soap magnate William Hesketh Lever.

His current, SSHRC-funded project is entitled “Queering Britain: Sexual and Criminal Inversion from Wilde to Wolfenden.” Its main focus is the diaries and other papers of George Cecil Ives (1867-1950), a criminologist, sexologist and pioneer of gay rights in Britain.

APT6 Cinema

Australian Cinémathèque

Queensland Art Gallery - Brisbane

27 December 2009 – 8 January 2010

Internationally acclaimed filmmaker Ang Lee has constructed a remarkably diverse filmography, ranging from period dramas and literary adaptations to martial arts epics and human dramas that witness shifts in contemporary Taiwanese experience. Whether working in a historical idiom or in a contemporary setting, Lee brings a deeply humanist sensibility to his films. The narratives he chooses are characterised by notions of marginalisation and transformation in characters exploring their gender, sexual and cultural identity, and their filial and social duties.

APT6 will include a selection of the director’s award-winning films, including Se, jie (Lust, Caution) 2007, Brokeback Mountain 2005, Wo hu cang long (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) 2000, The Ice Storm 1997, Yin shi nan nu (Eat Drink Man Woman) 1994 and Xi yan (The Wedding Banquet) 1993.

Los Angeles (November 23, 2009) — The Autry National Center, the first major American museum to recognize the contributions of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community to the American West, is proud to announce the creation of the Out West series.  This series of programs, scheduled to take place over the next twelve months, will feature Western scholars, authors, artists, politicians, musicians, and friends of Western LGBTs in discussions and gallery talks at the Autry.  Programs currently being considered examine LGBT Native Americans, LGBT rodeo culture, LGBT political strides including the struggle for marriage equality, and LGBT contributions to the Western arts.

 

“What Ever Happened to Ennis del Mar?” is the first program in the Out West series. When Gene Autry issued his ten-point “Cowboy Code” in the 1940s, he could not have anticipated the story of Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist, but the messages of tolerance, fairness, and integrity the Code promotes speak to the acceptance for which the Brokeback Mountain characters longed. Their story is the departure point for this first discussion.   Scheduled for December 13 in the Wells Fargo theater, the panel will be moderated by Virginia Scharff, author and professor of history/director of the Center for the Southwest at the University of New Mexico. The program focuses on the representation of homosexuality in the West before, during, and after the era depicted in the movie, and explores the Academy Award–winning film’s significance in renewing the Western film for contemporary audiences.

 

Panelists will also discuss Brokeback Mountain’s impact as a pop-cultural milestone pointing to larger societal conflicts, such as the “red state/blue state” schism that mirrors rural and urban demographics—a divide that often compels LGBT Westerners to reluctantly abandon rural homes in search of more inclusive enclaves in larger urban areas. The panel includes Los Angeles Times and NPR film critic Kenneth Turan; Peter M. Nardi, Ph.D., author and professor of sociology at Pitzer College; and William Handley, associate professor of English at the University of Southern California and editor of The Brokeback Book (forthcoming).

A NIGHT AT THE MOVIES with Tama Carroll


How does story telling in words differ creatively from story telling in films?   A Night at the Movies will compare excerpts from books and plays with scenes from the film versions of the literary works. Once a month scenes from a different and popular book/play and its film version will be featured and each selection will exemplify a different aspect of filmic story telling. Discover why films require their own creative conventions and how filmmakers employ visual and aural techniques to enhance and deepen the tale with as few words as possible. And to add to the enjoyment get the scoop on some of the behind-the-scenes history of the evening's film.

Following are the films we'll be exploring this quarter:

Thursday, December 10
The Color Purple: How to you take interior monologues (letters) and turn them into a visual film experience.

Tuesday, January 12
Breakfast at Tiffany's: Why would you change the tone & ending of a film to please a movie audience.

Tuesday, February 16th
Brokeback Mountain: The process of lengthening and enhancing a short story to fill ninety minutes of screen time.


This series will meet once a month, continuing through June 2010.  No RSVP required, just drop on in and join us for a Night at the Movies.

Jingle Bell Jock! Will Knock Your Socks Off! By Sister Dana Van Iquity
Published: December 24, 2009

For the latest Tom Orr parody production, Jingle Bell Jock!, the Eureka Theatre stage is set with two trees:  one for Christmas hung with jock straps, and the other a blue Hanukkah bush decorated with bagels, dreidels, and blueballs — er — blue balls.  It’s fun to figure out the significance of the array of hundreds of toys.  For instance, a cock on top of an ass (two stuffed toy animals, you pervs), a giant piece of coal, and both a white and a black Santa.  Orr, the best parodist around, begins with a dirty, flirty number describing the show we are about to see, sung to the Best Little Whorehouse tune.  If you, too, suffer from holiday stress, just “Let it go, let it go,” breathe deep, and Ommm yourself to “Let It Snow.”


The ensemble cast changes periodically, with pianist/ soloist/ musical director Dave Dobrusky usually playing the licentious, mean, unclean Grinch. “For a good time, call the Grinch,” croons the green, well-endowed Xmas naysayer with an appropriately deep bass voice and alleged 39-inch boner. That night the female elf was played by Alexis Wong, who is being driven insane by all those annoying “Silver Bells” ringing from Salvation Army bucketeers.

  Hopefully on your night, Wong will beautifully belt out the bodacious “Surabaya Santa” (the only lyrics NOT penned by the ostentatious Orr).  The same night, Stephen Vaught played the male elf, who sings of the dangers of “Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland” — what with all the black ice, frostbite, and uninsured vision blurred.  He also sang an SM “Santa Daddy” to the usual “Santa, Baby.”  Giana DeGeiso, for her farewell SF performance, was Mrs. Claus singing of a clinging Santa with “Smile (though your heart is breaking)” and “I Will Survive.” 


Orr does his classic hit at tabloid celebs who should be “Bitchslapped” for their awful antics, all to the tune of “Witchcraft.”  Orr sequentially delivers stabs at “Undead Boys” of vampire shows and at Michael Jackson (too soon?); give beatitudes for Bea Arthur with “Bosom Buddies” from Mame; and (changing to cowboy drag) render a clever musical version of Brokeback Mountain.  You’ll be tempted to sing along with “Homo Rodeo Cowboy,” but please don’t.  You’ll have your sing-along moments later on.


Jingle Bell Jock! continues (Thurs-Sun var. times), including a 10:30pm New Year’s Eve show with special guest Connie Champagne, until Jan. 10, 2010 at Eureka Theatre, 215 Jackson St., SF.  Tix ($20) call (415) 374-JOCK or at TheEurekaTheatre.com.

60th annual Books and Coffee focuses on coming of age in America

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University’s weekly February Books and Coffee series will feature books from the 21st century that focus on coming of age in the United States, a theme driven by Purdue’s first Common Reading selection, which will open the series on Feb. 4, 2010.

The 60th annual Books and Coffee, which is free and open to the public, will take place on the West Lafayette campus in Stewart Center, Rooms 302/306. The event begins at 4 p.m. when tea, coffee and hot cocoa are available. The talks by faculty members begin at 4:30 p.m., and the event concludes at 5 p.m. with a free drawing for prizes, including books and sweatshirts donated by local merchants.

The 2010 discussions will include:

    * Feb. 4. Barbara Dixon, associate dean for the College of Liberal Arts, will talk about Bich Minh Nguyen’s “Stealing Buddha’s Dinner.” The book was selected for Purdue’s first Common Reading program, and a copy of the book was given to each incoming freshman. After the talk, author Bich Nguyen, also a Purdue faculty member, will be available to sign her recently released “Short Girls.” Copies will be available to purchase through Von’s Bookstore.

    * Feb. 11. Donald Platt, poet and professor of English, will talk about Annie Proulx’s most recent book “Fine Just the Way It Is, Wyoming Stories 3.” Proulx, also author of the short story that inspired the film “Brokeback Mountain,” will speak at the Purdue’s Literary Awards event on April 22. An additional prize to this week’s raffle will be a copy of the book signed by author Annie Proulx.

    * Feb. 18. George Bodner, A. Kelly Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, will talk about Daniel Wallace’s “Mr. Sebastian and the Negro Magician.”

Film Office's Oscar gala moves Downtown to Wilson Center




Talk about your "Twilight Saga: New Moon" souvenirs.

A long, hooded red robe worn during scenes shot in Italy and a poster autographed by the Volturi vampires are among roughly 175 items that will be auctioned during the Pittsburgh Film Office's Oscar gala.

Russell Crowe, Denzel Washington, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway and Liam Neeson have signed DVDs of their famous films, including "Gladiator," "Brokeback Mountain," "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Schindler's List." Alex O'Loughlin, who starred in the cult vampire series "Moonlight," has donated an autographed photo while his castmates signed a "Three Rivers" script.

The silent auction also will feature signed Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Ben Roethlisberger jerseys, a Steelers Super Bowl edition football inked by the quarterback along with six Super Bowl etched glass tumblers from Tiffany's.

The March 7 party, which has become a key source of funding for the film office, moves this year to the August Wilson Center for African American Culture, 980 Liberty Ave., Downtown.

As usual, though, organizers will roll out a red carpet, allow guests to watch a live broadcast of the Academy Awards from Hollywood, listen to the funk Motown band Soul Village, nibble from Pittsburgh restaurant food stations and toast the winners or losers.

Tickets, a portion of which is tax-deductible, are $250 for VIPs, which includes a 6 p.m. champagne reception, valet parking and three drink tickets; $125, includes admission at 7:30 p.m. and two drink tickets; or $75, if you buy six or more of the $125 tickets (drinks are separate).

"Lights! Glamour! Action!" marks its 10th year, as the office itself celebrates 20 years. The event is black tie-optional, and a guest came dressed as The Joker from "The Dark Knight" a year ago.

"Everybody can come, everybody can buy tickets," emphasizes Jessica Conner, assistant director of the film office. "A lot of times I hear people say that they always think this is a film industry party and every year, I try to get the message out that we want everybody to come.

"Anybody that loves movies, anybody that wants to watch the Oscars, come, come, come. They can buy tickets on our website, they can call the office," at 412-261-2744 or go to www.pghfilm.org.

Earlham corrects ticket misprints

Those who already have tickets to the Earlham College Artist and Lecture Series events featuring Punch Brothers with Chris Thile on Friday and Michael Pollan on Feb. 27 should ignore the time printed on the ticket.

Lynn Knight, Earlham's events coordinator, said that those events are both at 7:30 p.m., even though the tickets were incorrectly printed 7 p.m.

The bluegrass group, The Punch Brothers with Chris Thile, will appear in Earlham's Goddard Auditorium on Friday.

The group includes guitarist Chris Eldridge, a founding member of the Infamous Stringdusters who also occasionally plays with The Seldom Scene; bassist Paul Kowert, who studied at the Curtis Institute of Music with Edgar Meyer; banjo player Noam Pikelny, a solo artist who also has performed with John Cowan and Tony Trischka; and fiddler Gabe Witcher whose work is featured on the soundtracks of films such as "Toy Story" and "Brokeback Mountain."

May 28, 2010  Brokeback Mountain

(http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj282/SanFranciscoJohn/queeries.jpg)

http://www.grcmc.org/index.php?page=events&event_id=2209


GRAND RAPIDS, FEBRUARY 9, 2010 - “Queeries,” a unique and long-awaited monthly LGBT film series, premieres at Wealthy Theatre on March 19 at 8 p.m.

“Queeries” will feature prominent and cutting-edge LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender) movies in a majestic, safe, smoke-free environment. Tickets are half-price for members of Community Media Center, who also receive bar privileges at Wealthy Theatre - the only brew ‘n view in Grand Rapids!

Titles range from the Oscar-nominated “Brokeback Mountain” to the critically acclaimed documentary “Hannah Free,” which was made in Michigan, directed by former Grand Rapidian Wendy Jo Carlton.

The events will be more than movies, said Wealthy Theatre Director Erin Wilson. The lobby will be a hub of socializing, networking, available information from sponsors and community partners, music, drinks (for CMC members), refreshments, live tweeting on flatscreen monitors and main screen, and much more.

The series premiere (‘Hedwig & the Angry Inch’) will feature live music in the lobby; renown Grand Rapids photographer Terry Johnston will take “glam” photos of costumed attendees, to raise money for the series.

Wilson said a wig will be available for photos that Johnston can snap before the movie starts, and email immediately - a “social media shoot” that can be Tweeted or sent to Facebook in real time from the lobby.

“Queeries will be open to all, informative, fun and fast-moving,” said Speak Equal founder Brooke Murphy. “It’s going to be a party.” (Speak Equal is a “Queeries” sponsor and partner.)

Each movie will be briefly introduced by community leaders and speakers. The premiere (March 19, 2010) title, “Hedwig & The Angry Inch” will be introduced by Tommy Allen (G-Sync, Rapid Growth Media), Colette Seguin Beighley (Exec. Director, GVSU LGBT Resource Center) and Jena Lewis, trans-educator/activist.

The June (National Pride Month) edition of “Queeries” will feature “Fag Bug” director Erin Davies in a Q&A, as she drives from New York to Wealthy Theatre with the Volkswagen featured in her documentary. It will be parked out front the entire day, still featuring the hateful vandalism that inspired the movie.

Queeries is brought to you by the Grand Valley State University LGBT Resource Center, with partners including: The Network, Speak Equal, GR Community Media Center, Wealthy Theatre, Kent County HIV/AIDS, Ameriprise Financial and Rumors Nightclub. The series is made possible through a generous grant from the Arcus Foundation.

An Afternoon with James Schamus
Saturday, May 1
1:00 PM Sundance Kabuki Cinemas
1881 Post Street (at Fillmore)
Members $20, general $25


The Film Society proudly presents this year's Kanbar Award for excellence in screenwriting to the inimitable James Schamus. An integral contributor to the American independent film business for more than two decades and a kindred spirit and collaborative partner of director Ang Lee, Schamus is both an award-winning screenwriter and producer who is also a film executive. As a screenwriter Schamus received an Academy Award nomination for his work on Ang Lee's multi-Oscar-winner Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and he has collaborated as writer and producer with Lee on 11 feature films including Taking Woodstock, Lust, Caution, The Ice Storm and The Wedding Banquet. An onstage interview with critic and cultural theorist B. Ruby Rich will be followed by the West Coast premiere of the newly completed director's cut of Ride with the Devil (1999).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Quote
Schamus, Plural and Singular
By Howard A. Rodman

The idea of a unitary Schamus is as ludicrous as the single bullet theory. No lone Schamus could subtend so large an angle. One needs to speak of Schamuses, or, perhaps, Schami. Nabokov once observed that "reality" is a word that only makes sense within inverted commas. Perhaps "Schamus" is a word that only makes sense if it applies equally to the plural. Like "aircraft," "trousers," "eyeglasses" or "fish."

Writer, builder, scholar, producer, family man, chef, public intellectual, mogul, friend-it's a multiplicity of identities rarely seen outside early silent serials (Fantômas, Mabuse) about disguised archfiends. Even his name suggests the plurality: As Wikipedia wryly notes, "Friends, acquaintances and even rivals sometimes refer to him as James James, Schamus Schamus, or Seamus Seamus because his first and last names are etymological cognates."


Quote
James Schamus Selected Filmography
2009       Taking Woodstock
2007       Lust, Caution
2003       Hulk
2000       Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
1999       Ride with the Devil
1997       The Ice Storm
1994       Eat Drink Man Woman

2005       Paul Haggis
-----------------------------------

It's interesting that Howard Rodman's article doesn't mention Brokeback Mountain at all, but it does list Paul Haggis as a previous recipient.

I guess that's because it is a screenwriting award, but I found the article by doing a news search on 'Brokeback'  :D

“Hidden Histories” Discovers Untold Stories

of the Western LGBT Community

The second program in the Out West series at the Autry

 

Thursday, May 13, 2010

7:00-9:00 p.m. Free with museum admission

 

 

Los Angeles, CA (April 23, 2010)—Discover the untold stories of the Western LGBT community on this progressive gallery tour as scholars and Autry curators tell the hidden stories behind some of the objects on display. The Autry’s second program in its Out West series delves into uncharted territory highlighting accounts of individuals who lived gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender lives from the 1800s to modern times in the American West. With this step, the Autry boldly adds the overlooked stories of the western LGBT community as yet another dimension of multicultural convergence in the scholarship of Western American history.

 

Objects on the gallery tour include Elizabeth Bacon Custer’s day dress from the 1870s, the Concord mail stagecoach from 1855, a post office letter box, cowboy gear, and other objects bearing stories related to the LGBT experience in the American West.

 

“With Hidden Histories, the Autry National Center weaves the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community into the rich tapestry of the American West,” said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios. “It is so important for Americans to hear stories that reflect the diversity of the LGBT community and our presence throughout our nation’s great history. GLAAD is proud to endorse Out West.”

 

The Out West series is under the direction of Stephen Aron , professor of history at UCLA and executive director of the Institute for the Study of the American West at the Autry. Blake Allmendinger, a professor in the English Department at UCLA who specializes in teaching the literature of the American West, will provide the context for the evening in a keynote address. Leading the tour groups will be Jim Wilke, independent scholar and curator; Patricia Nell Warren, renowned Western historian and author of eight books, including The Front Runner; Carolyn Brucken , the Autry’s Associate Curator of Western Women’s History; and Jeffrey Richardson , the Autry’s Assistant Curator of Film and Popular Culture.

 

“The words ‘homosexuality’ and ‘heterosexuality’ did not commonly exist a hundred years ago, and we must take great care to be judicious as we consider the Autry artifacts from their own historical context. Scholarship on the contributions of the LGBT community to the history and culture of the American West is relatively new. Nevertheless, we were there, and with Out West—here we are. It’s our history, too,” noted Gregory Hinton, creator and producer of the Out West series.

About the Out West Series

Having marked the first formal public recognition of the contributions of the LGBT community to Western American history by a major American museum with the installation of the iconic Brokeback Mountain shirts in its Imagination Gallery, the Autry delves deeper into the subject matter by hosting Out West, a series of four programs over a 12-month period. Assembled at each event will be Western scholars, authors, artists, politicians, musicians, and friends of Western LGBT people. The first event, a panel discussion titled “What Ever Happened to Ennis del Mar?” took place on December 13, 2009.

 

Conceived by Gregory Hinton, consulting producer for the series, Out West was inspired not only by the Autry’s recent installation of the iconic shirts worn by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in Brokeback Mountain but also by the permanent inclusion of the International Gay Rodeo Association’s (IGRA) archives into the Autry Library (both facilitated by Hinton). Mrs. Gene Autry presided over a launch event on August 11, 2009, celebrating the loan of the shirts from collector Tom Gregory, who purchased them at a charity auction and shared Hinton’s vision for using them toward a greater good. At the installation of the iconic shirts, the Autry National Center ’s President and CEO John Gray said, “The American West is a place for all of us, and all of us have a place in the West.”

 

The Out West series at the Autry National Center is made possible through the generous support of Tom Gregory, HBO, the Gill Foundation, and the Small Change Foundation, in association with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), and the Courage Campaign.

Despite being cast in every important scene and center-framed during every iconic movie moment, costume design often remains hidden in plain sight.

It’s a bit of a paradox, said Brian Hearn, Oklahoma City Museum of Art film curator. “You really notice it when it’s bad or when it’s really good, but a lot of times, it’s successful when it’s sort of seamless.”

In Hollywood, however, clothes don’t just drape the actor — they make the character. Surveying the entire range of American cinema, OKCMOA has compiled a collection of more than 85 original garments and accessories that explore the art of making movie garments, and the historical role costume designers have played in shaping the look of films.

The result is the exhibit “Sketch to Screen: The Art of Hollywood Costume Design.” Many of the featured costumes are identifiable by even casual cinephiles. The collection ranges from Jean Harlow’s cream satin evening gown from 1933’s “Bombshell,” to Mary Pickford’s tattered blue dress from the 1922 silent film “Tess of the Storm Country.” Oscar-winning designs include the John Truscott-created hooded cape worn by Vanessa Redgrave in “Camelot” and Bette Davis’ complete “Death of the Nile” pink-beaded outfit designed by Anthony Powell.

Men’s film fashion also plays a big part in the exhibit. Heath Ledger’s “Brokeback Mountain” getup is featured along with Robert DeNiro’s leopard-print robe and boxing shorts from “Raging Bull,” and the “Gladiator” garb donned by Russell Crowe in 2000.

Singer-songwriter Mary McBride brings "The Way Home Tour" to New Orleans

Singer and songwriter Mary McBride couldn’t have arrived in Louisiana at a more appropriate time to begin her “The Way Home Tour.”
         
This incomparable place we call home is in on our minds constantly, as we worry about the Gulf oil spill and the start of hurricane season.
       
“I have lots of family in New Orleans,” she said. “I always try to make it the first part of my tours.”
       
Her latest tour, which celebrates the release of her album “The Way Home” on June 22, is different. It brings her and her band to “places that people call home,” including homeless shelters, homes for people with mental and physical disabilities, a veterans hospital in California, a farm worker community in Washington State.

Pride Films and Plays

We are excited about fine writing for films like ‘Brokeback Mountain’, ‘Milk’, and “A Single Man” to name a few. And we hope to foster excellent writing with our Great Gay Screenplay Contest, produced in association with Chicago Filmmakers. Plays with GLBTQ themes have had a major impact on our cultural identity. To remind both our artists and our audiences of great gay writing throughout history, we launched our play reading series "Five Decades of Great Gay Plays" in May and June 2010. Featuring works from the '60s to the '00s, the series included Mart Crowley's Boys in the Band, Lanford Wilson's Fifth of July, William M. Hoffman's As Is, and Jonathan Harvey's Beautiful Thing, and Richard Greenberg's Take Me Out.

In August and September, we explore the “Great Plays of Terrence McNally” including The Lisbon Traviata, Love! Valour! Compassion!, Corpus Christi, The Ritz, and the Chicago premiere of one of his newest plays Some Men.

Later we will be doing staged readings of great screenplays including Brokeback Mountain, Milk, Gods and Monsters, and A Single Man to name a few, and we are looking for help to put this series together.

And we have gotten many requests for readings of works with lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered themes. Anyone interested in tackling these projects?

Explore the Reading Series page for details.

We foster excellent writing important to the GLBTQ community and relevant to our world with contests, including the Great Gay Screenplay Contest, produced in association with Chicago Filmmakers.

Upcoming contests will focus on GLBTQ musicals and plays, and a special contest for women writing plays or screenplays with lesbian characters or themes. You will find information on our Contest Page.

Though based in Chicago, we are working with professionals, academics, and people with interest in GLBTQ issues from around the globe. Please sign our mailing list so we can keep you updated on upcoming projects and deadlines.

I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas at pridefilmsandplays@gmail.com. And we are always looking for volunteers for projects big and small.

Thanks for stopping by.

Laboratory Theater presents
GIT ALONG LIL DOGGIES
http://vimeo.com/8540538
http://www.laboratorytheater.org

"Brokeback Mountain" meets "Naked Lunch" in Laboratory Theater's newest work, a cowboy dance-drama about the spiritual imprint of the windswept landscape of the American west. In an impressionistic narrative inspired by the work of William S. Burroughs and Annie Proulx, two outlaws conjure the violent forces of nature through sex-magic to take revenge on an old adversary. Commingling elements of country-western line dance and gay pornography, the performance
unfolds against a projected video landscape of repainted Marlboro cigarette TV commercials and within an immersive soundscape incorporating contemporary new age music for pedal steel guitar.

Directed by Yvan Greenberg, with Corey Dargel, Sheila Donovan, Oleg Dubson, and Wil Smith.

The passion of the tango in Seoul

(http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj282/SanFranciscoJohn/22223433.jpg)

There is a famous saying: “Life is like the tango: sad, sensual, sexy, violent and quiet.”

The next two weeks will bring two opportunities to confirm that for yourself: a show by the electro-tango ensemble Bajofondo and a performance by the flamenco troupe Nuevo Ballet Espanol with star Spanish dancers Rojas and Rodriguez.

Bajofondo, named after the Spanish word for “underground,” will headline its first concert in Seoul on Saturday, two years after it debuted here at the annual Ulsan World Music Festival.

“The combination of passionate and sensual tango and electronic music will be synchronized to catchy video screen images, providing the audience with the chance to experience the ‘revolution of tango’,” said Eternity, the concert’s agency in Seoul, in a release.

Their music has gained attention for creating a hybrid tango with electronic samples and hard beats on the one hand, and live orchestras and rock and funk riffs on the other. The music is often compared to the Paris-based Gotan Project.

Consisting of eight Argentinian and Uruguayan musicians, Bajofondo is led by Oscar-winning composer and producer Gustavo Santaolalla.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*Bajofondo will perform at 7 p.m. on Aug. 28 at AX-Korea in northeastern Seoul. Tickets are priced at 88,000 won ($74) for all seats. For English booking and inquiries, call (010) 4265-5352 or e-mail eternityseoul@gmail.com.

“Sangre Flamenca” will be staged from Sept. 8 to 12 at the Universal Arts Center in northeastern Seoul. Tickets cost between 55,000 won and 150,000 won. Visit www.superflamenco.com for information

A film screening and discussion of the film "Brokeback Mountain." Brokeback Mountain is a sweeping epic that explores the lives of two young men, a ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection. The complications, joys and heartbreak they experience provide a testament to the endurance and power of love. Heath Ledger and Jack Gyllenhaal deliver emotionally charged, remarkably moving performances in a "movie that is destined to become one of the great classics of our time."

University of Louisville

Faculty Research Forum presents Nicole Seymour Sept. 24

Nicole Seymour, UofL Department of English, will present "Sex on the Beach - and the Mountain: 'Brokeback Mountain,' 'Surf Party,' and the Shrinking Public Sphere," Friday, Sept. 24 at 3:30 p.m. in Room 300, Humanities building. For more information on this event, visit louisville.edu/cchs/faculty-research-forums. The Faculty Research Forum is an ongoing project of the Commonwealth Center for the Humanities and Society with assistance from the College of Arts and Sciences. This event is free and open to the public.

Quote
Landscape ecologist Gordon Brent Ingram observes that, “like most other environmental
amenities in late capitalism, queer space is increasingly commodified.” Exacerbating this queer
experience of a shrunken public sphere is what Ingram calls the “‘homophobia by design’” of
nature-based venues such as public parks and beaches. In this talk, I assess Ang Lee’s film
Brokeback Mountain (2005) as a commentary on this contemporary reality – in which sexual
“liberation” entails a retreat to the private sphere, and, more specifically, a privatized relationship
to the environment. I read Brokeback against the much lighter text it briefly incorporates, the
1964 beach romp Surf Party; I compare how the films shed light on the relationship between the
expression of unruly desire (queer on the one hand, teenage on the other) and access to public
natural space.

The Public Theater (Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director; Andrew D. Hamingson, Executive Director) is proud to announce the addition of Academy Award-nominated actress Anne Hathaway and the best-selling author of the Gossip Girl series Cecily von Ziegesar to the prestigious roster of participants for "Chasing The Green Light," the first Public Forum on Monday, October 18. Curated by Jeremy McCarter, a senior writer at Newsweek, The Public Forum is an exciting new series of lectures, debates and conversations that showcase leading voices in the arts, politics and the media. Public Forum events are open to the general public. Tickets for the inaugural event can be purchased for $25 at www.publictheater.org.

The October 18th Public Forum event, "Chasing The Green Light," coincides with The Public's acclaimed production of GATZ and will take place on Monday, October 18 at 8 p.m. The evening will explore F. Scott Fitzgerald's great American novel The Great Gatsby and how the country's recent troubles have affected the American dream. Sam Waterston is the host for the evening.

The three-part, 90-minute evening will begin with a writers' roundtable on Fitzgerald's legacy, featuring Michael Friedman (composer/lyricist, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Jay McInerney (author of Bright Lights, Big City and How It Ended), Cecily von Ziegesar (author of the Gossip Girl novels), and Suzan-Lori Parks (Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Topdog/Underdog). Following the roundtable, Arianna Huffington (co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post) will discuss her new book, Third World America, and trade views on money and the changing American dream with Reihan Salam (contributor to National Review and co-author of Grand New Party). The evening will close with a personal account of how tenuous American dreams can be as Anne Hathaway (The Public Theater's Twelfth Night) reads from the heartbreaking letters that Zelda Fitzgerald wrote to her husband Scott over the course of their beautiful and damned life together.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Autry National Center to Present 5th Anniversary
Screening of Landmark Film Brokeback Mountain
Saturday, December 11th, 2010


SCREENING AT 11: 30 AM

As part of the successful series Out West at the Autry, the movie presentation
will be followed by a staged reading of excerpts of the book Beyond
Brokeback: The Impact of a Film as well as music inspired by the film
STAGED READING AT 3:00 PM


LOS ANGELES, CA – On Saturday, December 11th, 2010 the Autry National Center will
present, in association with Focus Features, a 5th anniversary screening of the award-winning
landmark film Brokeback Mountain followed by a staged reading of messages, essays, poetry,
and music inspired by the film. The event is part of the acclaimed program Out West at the
Autry, a series of public events focusing on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT)
history and culture in the West with gallery talks, film screenings, lectures, performances and
other cultural events.

“Brokeback Mountain helped to bring wide attention to important conversations about LGBT
issues in modern Western communities,” said Autry President and CEO Dan Finley. “This
powerful film resonates deeply with the Autry’s own strong connection to the history of
Western films as well as our mission to share and explore the inspiring stories of all the
peoples of the American West.”


Independent curator and Out West at the Autry creator Gregory Hinton adapted for the stage
selections of the 2007 book Beyond Brokeback: The Impact of a Film, which comprises
compelling writing contributed to the website The Ultimate Brokeback Forum. Excerpts of
poignant and humorous messages, essays, and poetry— by writers young and old, male and
female, gay and straight—will be read after the Brokeback Mountain screening.
Accompanying the reading is the Brokeback-inspired song Meet Me on the Mountain written
by composer Shawn Kirchner. Jeffrey Richardson, the Autry’s associate curator of Film and
Popular Culture will present the film and introduce the reading by himself reading a passage
from Beyond Brokeback. Six additional readers include Autry staffers and friends and
supporters of Out West at the Autry from its inception.

Brokeback Mountain was produced and released by Focus Features in December 2005.
Hinton worked with James Schamus, CEO of Focus Features to create this 5th anniversary
commemoration—the only Brokeback Mountain anniversary screening of its kind.
“2010 has been a tough year for members of the gay, lesbian and transgender community
with an epidemic of teen suicides, bullying, and disappointing setbacks in such highly charged
issues as Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and equality marriage,” said Hinton. “After five years,
Brokeback Mountain remains our most eloquent and cathartic outlet. I applaud Focus
Features and the Autry for the hospitality they have demonstrated by screening the film and
the wisdom the museum has shown by its ongoing support for Out West at the Autry.”
Inspired by the success of the program at the Autry, other institutions throughout the West will
be working with Hinton to present Out West events. Details about future Out West programs
at the Autry, as well as other institutions, will be announced on December 11th before the
screening of Brokeback Mountain.

Out West at the Autry connects to the success of the Autry's recent installation of the iconic
shirts worn by stars Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in the film, as well as the permanent
inclusion of the International Gay Rodeo Association's (IGRA) archives into the Autry Library.
(Both facilitated by Gregory Hinton.)

This event is free with admission to the Autry and is expected to sell out. Advance
reservations are recommended. For more information the public may call 323-667-2000, x252
or visit TheAutry.org.


About Out West at the Autry

Out West at the Autry is a series of public programs that explores the contributions of the
lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community to Western American history by bringing
together scholars, authors, artists, politicians, musicians, and others for gallery discussions,
performances and screenings. Conceived by independent curator Gregory Hinton in 2009,
Out West at the Autry was inspired by the Autry’s installation of the iconic shirts worn by
Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in the film Brokeback Mountain, on loan from collector
Tom Gregory, as well as the permanent inclusion of the International Gay Rodeo Association
(IGRA) archives into the Autry Library (both facilitated by Hinton). Beginning in 2011, the Autry
will present four public Out West at Autry events and the series will travel to other western
institutions.

Out West at the Autry is made possible through the generous support of Tom Gregory, HBO,
the Gill Foundation, and the Small Change Foundation, in association with the Gay and
Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), and the
Courage Campaign.

Autry National Center

The Autry National Center, formed in 2003 by the merger of the Autry Museum of Western
Heritage with the Southwest Museum of the American Indian and the Women of the West
Museum, is an intercultural history center dedicated to exploring and sharing the stories,

Pulitzer Prize-winning US novelist Annie Proulx will be a special guest at the biennial Hastings Festival of Writers in April.

Proulx, who will be in New Zealand to promote her new memoir, won the prize in 1994 for her novel, The Shipping News, later made into a successful film, and her short story, Brokeback Mountain, was adapted for the big screen, going on to win Academy, BAFTA and Golden Globe awards.

She will join some of New Zealand's literary heavyweights, such as New Zealand Poet Laureate Cilla McQueen, short fiction writer and novelist Owen Marshall, and Wellington poet and past laureate Jenny Bornholdt for the April 1-3 event.

ArcLight Presents: Oscar Nominees throughout the month of March.

If you've never seen these movies on the big screen, or if you want to see them again with the best sight and sound possible, March is the month to do it. This month, all four ArcLights will be screening the biggest movies from 2000-2010 that were nominated, but didn't quite make the final cut to receive Best Picture. Many of these films created controversy when they didn't win, and for good reason.

From the independent Little Miss Sunshine to Moulin Rouge, all four of our locations will be featuring one movie a week. See below for details.

NEW YORK, NY.- Madison Square Park Conservancy’s Mad. Sq. Art announces the premiere of City of Nature, a new film by artist Kota Ezawa to be on view in Madison Square Park March 31 – May 15, 2011. Knitting together fleeting, split-second excerpts of popular films in which flora and fauna are the featured characters, the artist’s new animated video offers a six-minute cinematic comment on the juxtapositions between nature and culture in narrative mass media. Incorporating re-interpreted scenes from renowned films including Ang Lee’s iconic Brokeback Mountain to the Guy Ritchie directed, Madonna starring, Swept Away, the new Mad. Sq. Art commission will be screened continuously daily from 11am to 9pm.

The artist, Kota Ezawa, comments, “City of Nature is an alternative to the mainstream nature film in that it weaves together 70 nature scenes from 20 different pop culture films through animation. The nature scenes, stemming from films as diverse as Late Spring by Yasujirō Ozu and Rambo: First Blood, are stitched together into an abstract narrative where one natural element leads to the next. The entire film collage is hand redrawn and transformed into an animated film.

June 29 – Brokeback Mountain (2005)

A raw, powerful story of two young men, a Wyoming ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 sheepherding in the harsh, high grasslands of contemporary Wyoming and form an unorthodox yet life-long bond--by turns ecstatic, bitter and conflicted. Written by Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana.

Hootenanny!

The San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus

Continuing the inaugural season of Dr. Timothy Seelig, the Chorus kicks up its cowboy-booted heels for some good ole country tunes – a real Hootenanny!!

The Chorus will delight you with the perfect summer offering of music and hilarious antics that only country music can provide: from Patsy Cline’s “She’s Got You,” and Tammy Wynette’s “DIVORCE,” to stunning choral arrangements of “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning” from OKLAHOMA.

You’ll sing, clap and dance along with the men as they whisk you through an evening of exuberant entertainment featuring San Francisco favorites; the Whoa Nellies Band and the Barbary Coast Cloggers, and Texas’ own queen of country, Kim Wisdom. Former conductor of the San Francisco Symphony Chorus Vance George will take us on a musical journey to Appalachia with some real sacred harp singing.

Also joining us from Los Angeles are Shawn Kirchner and Ryan Harrison performing music from their Brokeback Mountain album and a very special cameo from the reigning Miss Trannyshack Pollo del Mar & friends.

City Opera Vancouver is making plans to give the world premiere of Brokeback Mountain in 2015. This will be the unique chamber version, which will follow on the premiere of ‘El Grande’ at the Teatro Real in Madrid one year earlier.

There is much work to do, of course. We are now raising money, and giving first thoughts to casting. Ennis is a bass-baritone, and Jack a tenor.

Exciting news to come!

Highlights include Coppola’s brilliant coming-of-age movie ‘The Outsiders’, starring a baby-faced and almost unrecognizable Tom Cruise, Brat Pack classic, the nostalgia and heartthrob-tastic ‘St Elmo’s Fire’, Ridley Scott’s Oscar winning Sci-Fi horror ‘Alien’ and the ultimate tear-jerker ‘Beaches’.

What is Silent Cinema?

Silent Cinema is beautifully simple: you wear wireless headphones to watch classic films on a full-size cinema screen.  Sit back and relax without the unwelcome soundtrack—no noisy neighbours and no shhhhh!

It’s like watching a movie at home—only better because you’re in an amazing space full of like-minded people.  You’re all enjoying an individual experience.  Together.  Because it really is silent, Silent Cinema can pop up almost anywhere–busy hotel foyer, creepy graveyard…an amazing space near you.

Rough (Google) translation:

Politiken's highly acclaimed film critic Kim Scot begins with a thundering lecture about the film and book.

 Brokeback Mountain

 Director: Ang Lee

 Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Heath Ledger, Michelle Williams, Anne Hathaway

 Visit this famous film, 3 double Oscar-winner and 4 double Golden Globe-and BAFTA-winner. An incredibly beautiful and poignant love story that captures you from start to finish, a really good movie to be seen and seen again and again.

 Annie Proulx 'masterful work about the life is rough and tough and big and open countryside. As the breathtaking scenery, the stories unfolding in, run the characters of an uncompromising and powerful energy. This is madness and loneliness at stake but also the unpredictable and giddy love. An incredibly beautiful and poignant love story.

Supper and Film

Supper & Film Discussion Group
Open to all, these gatherings start with supper, followed by the film and then a discussion of its themes, characters and artistry.



 Brokeback Mountain – This sweeping epic explores the life of two young men, ranch hand and rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 and forge a life long connection. Complications and heartbreak as the years go by test their enduring power of love. Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal deliver emotionally charged performances in this “classic of our time”.

Brokeback Mountain at the Atlas

Next Thursday, Sept. 1, brings the final film, Ang Lee's 2005 adaptation of Annie Proulx's short story Brokeback Mountain. While unleashing a torrent of "I wish I could quit you" gay-cowboy jokes on a tittering nation,
all the jokes in the world were unable to lessen the impact of the final images of lost love and loneliness. And yet as much as Brokeback Mountain was about the love of two men,
it was about the destruction that the closet wreaks on everyone it touches -- gay and straight.


Atlas Performing Arts Center, 1333 H St. NE, Washington D.C.

Tickets are free, except for a $2 booking fee. Call 202-399-7993 or visit atlasarts.org (http://atlasarts.org) for a full schedule.

Brokeback Mountain - Eine Lesung mit Tilla Kratochwil und Masha Qrella

Wer kennt sie nicht die scheinbar alltäglichen Orte, die durch die Liebe geweiht werden. Der Brokeback Mountain wird im Sommer 1961 zu so einem Ort für die beiden Cowboys Jack und Ennis, die dort oben in der Wildnis einen Sommer lang Schafe hüten und dabei ihre „lebenslängliche“ Leidenschaft füreinander entdecken.

Tilla Kratochwil als Ranch-Helfer Ennis erzählt und spielt. Masha Qrella als Rodeo-Cowboy Jack singt und spielt Gi...tarre. Ein Abend über zwei tragische Rebellen der Liebe.

Dass zwei Frauen diese Geschichte von amerikanischen Cowboys und der Liebe zwischen zwei Männern erzählen, ermöglicht eine Distanz. Sie lässt Raum, die stark von der Verfilmung geprägte Erzählung neu zu sehen. Dabei steht nicht so sehr der Tabubruch in einer stark heterosexuell geprägten Gesellschaft im Vordergrund, sondern die Frage, in wie weit man sich in seinem Leben einrichtet und genügsam und zufrieden ist – oder ob man große Wagnisse eingeht und sich traut, auch unkonventionellen Impulsen zu folgen. Text und Musik lassen beim Zuschauer eigene Bilder entstehen. Songzitate und Eigenkompositionen stellen die großen Fragen des Lebens neu. Ein unterhaltsamer Abend, der eine großartige Liebesgeschichte noch einmal erzählt.

im Rahmen der Nachtschicht Queer mit Queerparty mit DJane JayJay

Eine Gemeinschaftsveranstaltung mit dem Schauspielhaus des Theater Magdeburg.

Message from Gregory Hinton:

Dear Friends:
 
I have been selected to produce and direct Dustin Lance Black's marriage equality play "8" in Colorado and Montana.
 
Out West is a partner in the national release of "8" to seventeen communities and counting all over the United States.

Associated Press
 (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-ap-us-theater-gaymarria,0,95841.story)

 
Out West is partnering with the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (http://www.kennedy-center.org/education/actf/) in Ft. Collins to present "8" on Feb 17th and the Bozeman Library Foundation in Bozeman on September 29th. I am co-directing with Leigh Selting, Director of the Festival and Executive Director of the University of Wyoming Theatre & Dance Dept.
 
I will also be presenting a workshop at the festival bsaed on my Windy City Times article "Staging Oral LGBT History: Laramie, Beyond Brokeback & "8 (http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/gay/lesbian/news/ARTICLE.php?AID=34680)"" with an impromptu reading of Beyond Brokeback. 
 
Beyond Brokeback deserves to be elevated to the status of Laramie and "8" and the workshop will hopefully propel that fact.

We have a very talented young director, Todd Espeland, pulling Beyond Brokeback together for Las Vegas on February 11th.

On February 27th, for our first event at the Autry we are presenting Out West with Al Simpson.

Gonna be a busy month!

Hello, My name is Sam and I am new to this group. The reason why I am writing is that I have a pair of boots that Jake wore in the movie Broke Back Mountain. I purchased them on ebay during and auction in conjunction with HRC. I have to sell them for financial reason but did not just to sell them to just  anyone. My wish is to sell them to a collector who will preserve this important part of movie history. If you are interested, please contact me privately at gmni2@aol.com. Serious inquires only please.

“Out West: LGBT Hidden Histories” and “Beyond Brokeback: The Impact of a Film”

August 18, 2012 (1:30 PM - 8:00 PM)

On the fifth anniversary of the premier of Brokeback Mountain, the Autry National Center in Los Angeles exhibited the two iconic shirts worn by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in the film. This exhibition was conceived by author Gregory Hinton. Surrounding this installation, Hinton created the Out West program series to illuminate positive contributions of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) community to the history and culture of the American West.

Join us on Aug.18 for the presentation “Out West: LGBT Hidden Histories” and “Beyond Brokeback: The Impact of a Film”. In addition, there will be a screening of the film Brokeback Mountain. This landmark showing is the first time Out West has come out east, giving audiences here an opportunity to explore this fascinating subject.

If you learned everything you knew about gay cowboys watching Brokeback Mountain, think again. The real history would include the creation of the gay rodeo in Reno. And the way the sport has spread across the West. It is another example of the West shaking up stereotypes. Las Vegas Clark County Library will host a lecture as part of its Out West series this Saturday evening to look at the history of gay rodeo.

The movie was shown in the Bing Theater at the museum. The seating capacity is 600, and the lower level was full for the screening of the movie. I am not sure if the balcony was full. It was truly wonderful to be seeing the movie in a full house again! The reactions to the scenes in the movie were great, just like it was when I saw it early in 2006. Laughing at the funny scenes (Ennis' comment about the harmonica for one). Cheering at the scene when Jack told off old man Newsom. Sucking in of breath when Alma saw the guys kiss. Murmurs and comments when Aguirre saw them on the mountain.

It was so very nice to be able to watch the movie again with a large crowd who appreciate the movie as much as we do! Having seen the movie so often, I was able to pay attention to the audience around me. I could tell the lady who sat next to me had never seen it before, by her reactions and comments. Of course, many cried at the end. A gay couple sat in front and to the side of me. They sat with arms around one another, one's head resting on the others shoulder. It was one of the best sharing of the viewing I have attended.

The whole audience clapped when the movie was over, and cheered when Ang Lee, James Shamus, Heath Ledger, and Michelle William's names came on the screen.

After the movie ended, the Curator of Film Independent at LACMA, Elvis Mitchell,  introduced and led the conversation with Ang Lee and James Shamus. The standing ovation for Ang lasted 2-3 minutes. The question and comment portion was wonderful and very revealing. When asked about first finding out about BBM, Ang said that he read the short story, after James told him about it, and it stayed with him.

He said he had been riding high from his success of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", and then took a beating when he did "The Hulk". So much so, that he was talking to his father and telling him he was going to quit making movies. His father told him not to do this, as this would not be a good example for his children. He said that after this conversation, his father died 2 weeks later.

Later he thought about BBM, thinking it had been made already. He called James Shamus, and asked him if "that little story" had been made. James told him it had not, and did Ang want to?  As is said, the rest is history. Questions were asked and comments were made for about 40 minutes. It was very revealing and so interesting. A lot of what was said I had not read or seen on videos, so it was wonderful to hear them both talk about what lead up to and the making of the movie. One thing that really stood out for me, was hearing Ang saying that this was the easiest movie he has ever made, and that of all the movies he has made, BBM is the one that means the most to him.

After it was over, Ang and James graciously signed autographs for the audience. The museum staff prevented access to them, so there was little chance for conversation, but I was able to get autographs and a couple of long distance pictures. The conversation was videoed and I was able to talk to the videographer afterwards and ask him if it would be made available. He gave me the name of the website and I will keep an eye on it and post the video here when it is available on the website.

I am so glad I attended, and it was well worth the trip.

How fortunate that you were be able to attend this, Linda. I'm envious. I wonder if Ang ever imagined that people would still be talking (and talking...) and crying over "that little story" more than six years later.

I am so glad I went, Kim! It was fantastic to see the movie with such a receptive audience, and even better to listen to their thoughts about the movie, and the making of it. Ang said that it came as a total surprise to him that it became so mainstream. He expected it to be this little film that just played in the art house theaters. He never expected the life it would have all this time later.

James told the audience at the beginning that there was no big party celebrating the 10th anniversary of Focus Features, that the showing in NYC and in LA were the parties. He also reiterated that Focus Features will never put out a Director's Cut, as the films they produce are what the director wants. Although it was pointed out that the film that was shown at the first viewing was 20 minutes longer than what was in the theaters and on DVD.

And I bet he didn't reveal what everybody wants to know: what was cut out? I know there are quite a few deleted scenes, but which ones made it into the very first version? Doesn't he realize that details like that are one of the motors of this forum??  :D

‘Brokeback Mountain’: A Gay Milestone That Almost Didn’t Happen

At an anniversary screening, director Ang Lee shares that his father pushed him to it.

Quote
While Lee and Schamus didn’t linger on the film’s enduring legacy at the L.A. County Museum of Art event, Lee expressed surprise that Brokeback crossed over to mainstream audiences. The director behind Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon downplayed his personal contribution to Brokeback Mountain’s final importance.
 
“I was participating in a happening,” he said.
 
Judging by the crowd’s enthusiastic reception, Brokeback Mountain is an ongoing happening that continues to open minds as it touches hearts

Was he any more specific concerning what he refers to as the "first viewing"?  Does he mean Venice?  What about Toronto?  Were both versions longer than the theatrical release?

Post by: Dave Cullen on June 11, 2012, 06:17:50 PM
i wasn't there to hear the whole context, but it sounds like he's talking about the first cut that ang and the editor put together for the team to review in-house. james talked about that at the NY showing at MoMa last month. he said the first scene with all the sheep moving on the mountain was considerably longer, like a Mutual of Omaha show.

james said he totally agreed that the pace needed to be leisurely, but not THAT slow, particularly not that sequence. his main critique to ang after that showing was to quicken the pace.

i don't recall him addressing any other particular cuts.
Title: Re: Brokeback Mountain Screenings and Related Events
Post by: killersmom on June 11, 2012, 10:08:18 PM
Yes, Dave, I do believe that was the cut he was referring to, the review in house.

The cut that made the festivals was the length we know today.

Dear Friends of Out West:

This coming Saturday, on June 23rd at 2:00 PM, I will present my workshop, “On Staging LGBT History: Laramie, Brokeback & ‘8’”in the West Hollywood Library Community Room. This will be my third Out West program for One City One Pride. www.weho.org/pride  (http://www.weho.org/pride)

Staging public testimony is an effective, efficient, and dramatic way to tell a story and preserve LGBT oral history. A brief lecture on how the documentary play is developed will be followed by Diversity Day, a staged reenactment—with audience participation— of recent Montana LGBT history which I adapted from an actual Missoula City Council Journal of Proceedings.

After Mayor John Engen of Missoula declared April 12, 2010 “Diversity Day”, six hours of powerful public testimony was heard prior to a Missoula City Council vote to add sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression to the city’s existing antidiscrimination ordinance – a first in Montana state history.

Footage of the original hearing will be screened as 45 minutes of redacted testimony is read by volunteers from the audience. The Missoula City Council has blessed this project.

"Diversity Day" is an opportunity to meet the Montana LGBT community and their friends who I have gotten to know and come to love- through the courage and power of their own words.

Please join me, if only to read a short passage, as a shout-out to Missoula from WeHo. I would be so grateful.

Thank you.
Gregory Hinton,
Creator and Producer of Out West

Linda,

So glad to see your post here about the screening.  Was coming here after a long absence to finally post, as I was at the screening as well.  But thankfully you've hit all the high points - well done!  I will just reiterate that it was one of the most moving screenings I've ever been too.  Like you said, to see it again with that enormous, reactive audience - and you really do forget just how hilarious the film is in so many places.  So many screenings I've attended have felt more like funerals. I'll admit, when I was getting out of the car, I said to my friend, "I can't believe I"m going to watch this sadass movie again..."  And of course it is, but...

My only quibble is I wish Elvis had just let Ang and James talk.  These guys have such a history together.  (and loved how James said back in the day when he had an office above a strip joint with two tables and a phone, and Ang came in to pitch something in his broken English, and the pitch lasted 45 minutes and James thought he was going to shoot himself...and then James began doing a sort of awful iimaginary Ang pitch for Brokeback..."Well, one guy's standing against the wall, then the other guy drives up and shaves..."  The best.)  In the beginning James and Ang were answering the first question and they were just off and running...I wanted to yell out "Don't interrupt them - just let them go, for God's sake!"  But alas, that didn't happen.

Thanks again for saving me the trouble of thinking up all the things you remembered - and hate I missed seeing you!

I kept getting up and looking to see if I knew anyone as the audience was filling up.

I am so sorry we missed each other!! DARN!!

I so enjoyed the reaction of the audience as well. Such good feelings and the fact that the theater was full!
Makes such a difference!!

I also agree about Elvis. He really did not need to try to move things along. They were doing such a good job without the interruptions!

The Bozeman Library Foundation with license from the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) and Broadway Impact, is proud to announce a one-night-only reading of “8,” a play chronicling the historic trial in the federal constitutional challenge to California’s Proposition 8, written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter and AFER Founding Board Member Dustin Lance Black.

“8” is an unprecedented account of the Federal District Court trial in Perry v. Schwarzenegger (now Perry v. Brown), the case filed by AFER to overturn Proposition 8, which stripped gay and lesbian Californians of the fundamental freedom to marry.

Black, who penned the Academy Award-winning feature film Milk and the film J. Edgar, based “8” on the actual words of the trial transcripts, first-hand observations of the courtroom drama and interviews with the plaintiffs and their families.

The Bozeman production is brought to the community thanks to author, director, and curator Gregory Hinton and his OUTWest programming. The Bozeman Library Foundation hosts the evening performance, starting with a reception from 6:30pm, the reading at 7:30pm in the Library’s mezzanine, followed by an informal discussion. Tickets are free and open to the public, but must be reserved in advance, as space is limited. Please call 582-2425 to secure your seat.

Hinton also was responsible for the “Beyond Brokeback: A Staged Reading with Music,” which premiered in Montana at the Bozeman Library in October 2011.

“The Bozeman Library is proud to be a partner on these two significant pieces of work,” said Paula K. Beswick, foundation director for the Library Foundation.
“A public library’s role is to provide equal and open access to information to help inform, educate, and enlighten. It does this not only through its materials, but also through meaningful programs, such as ‘8’.”

Take advantage of a rare opportunity to experience Shawn Kirchner’s CD, "MEET ME ON THE MOUNTAIN" in concert. Published in 2008, Kirchner’s CD is a collection of songs with a mix of foot-stompin’ bluegrass, polished country, and soulful folk, inspired by the film, "Brokeback Mountain." All of the original lead vocalists from the album will be present in this “reunion” concert: Ryan Harrison; Karen Harper; and Alice Kirwan Murray; with Shawn Kirchner, piano; Michael Butler Murray, guitar; Bradley Gibson, fiddle; and Robbie Davis, bass.

Kirchner lives in La Verne and is the organist/pianist at the La Verne Church of the Brethren where he is also the resident composer. He is also a well-known composer and songwriter in the musical circles of Los Angeles. In May, 2012, he was appointed Swann Family Composer in Residence of the Los Angeles Master Chorale, a three-year post. His choral compositions are performed throughout the United States and abroad in concert halls, churches, schools, and on radio and television.

“All of the songs are beautiful, and some made me cry. The music is incredible. The players are amazing and the harmonies so tight. The balance between the vocals and the instruments is perfect!” says Penelope Herdt Grover, vice-president and co-founder of New York’s ASCIA.

MEET ME ON THE MOUNTAIN: Brokeback Inspires Composer Shawn Kirchner - A Music Review
By
Meryl Ann Butler


(http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj282/SanFranciscoJohn/meet-me-on-the-mountain-1820-20080226-131.jpg)

The poetic lyrics and poignant melodies on Shawn Kirchner’s new CD, Meet Me on the Mountain, captured my heart the first time I heard them. The songs are a mix of foot-stompin’ bluegrass, polished country, and soulful folk, inspired by the film, Brokeback Mountain.

Annie Proulx’s short story by the same name first appeared in The New Yorker in 1997. Later, it was adapted into an Oscar-winning screenplay by Diana Ossana and Larry McMurtry, triggering heartfelt responses from around the world.

Kirchner’s songs offer an added dimension of emotional depth to the scenes and characters that inspired them. Yet the songs also stand solidly on their own, as Kirchner has carefully crafted both music and lyrics to be independent of the famous story.

Anyone who has ever loved someone who was outside the confines of socially acceptable partners is bound to be particularly touched by this music.

Lead singer, Ryan Harrison, weaves his melodies around the listener’s heart with a numinous and evocative voice; rich, strong and captivating. The vocals are supported by superb instrumentation, including some mighty fancy fiddlin’ by Gabe Witcher, and the mesmerizing tones of Tommy Morgan’s harmonica.

Three of the eleven tracks are tender love songs, including Last Stand, a warm outpouring of affection that deserves a place in the annals of the great love songs. The title track, Meet Me On the Mountain, is timeless, and lingers wistfully in the soul. The toe-tappin’, I’ll Be On My Way, celebrates the continuity of life with optimism and hope. And the four songs for female leads insightfully explore the range of emotions of the women caught in these unexpected love triangles.  

Los Angeles City Councilman, Bill Rosendahl, a champion of equal rights, calls Meet Me on the Mountain, “warm, inviting, soothing, positive and healing!” and says, “Hats off to this album, it's just beautiful!!"

Vice President and co-founder of New York’s ASCIA [1] (A Small Company in America), Penelope Herdt Grover, says,

“The music is incredible. The players are amazing and the harmonies so tight! The balance between the vocals and the instruments is perfect!

“All of the songs are beautiful, and some made me cry. The lyric, ‘all I could see, was you turning into a stranger, right in front of me,’ really struck a nerve. Up All Night is haunting. And the production quality is so high, I could only think that I was listening to the recording of a Broadway musical.”

Proulx’s story, set in 1963, includes a flashback to a homophobic hate-crime set in the era of the 1950s. Sadly, nearly half a century later, the brutal 1998 murder of 21-year old Matthew Shepard [2] exposed society’s lack of progress in the areas of tolerance and acceptance. A decade later, in February, 2008, California 8th-grader Lawrence King [3] was shot in the head by a 14-year-old fellow student, allegedly murdered because of his sexual orientation and gender expression.

It is often left to the creative arts to bring society to its senses. Inspiring examples of the arts at work include the books, South Pacific, The Diary of Anne Frank, and To Kill a Mockingbird, along with the shows and hit movies based on them. Each of these stories contributed toward erasing prejudice and coaching society to becoming a more supportive and nurturing community. Like these works of art, I envision Kirchner’s songs contributing toward opening hearts to more of the humane behaviors that are worthy of being called “civilization.”


Meet Me On the Mountain is Shawn Kirchner’s “break-out” CD as a songwriter, and what a debut!  This is a musical love story that is sure to pluck your heartstrings and warm your soul. There’s no doubt that it’s going to skyrocket, and what a delight it is to be among the first to discover this treasure.

Shawn Kirchner’s Meet Me On the Mountain is available at www.CDbaby.com and on iTunes.

Eine Liebe gegen alle Widerstände. Eine Liebe, die ihren Namen nicht zu nennen wagt. Ergreifende, epische Liebesgeschichte aus dem Herzen Amerikas.
Wyoming 1963. Der Rancher Ennis del Mar (Heath Ledger) und der Rodeoreiter Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) werden auf Brokeback Mountain angeheuert, den Sommer über eine Herde Schafe vor Wilderern und Raubtieren zu schützen. In der harten und rauen Einsamkeit der Berge entwickelt sich zwischen den beiden bald mehr als bloße Kameradschaft - sie verlieben sich ineinander.
Angesichts der engstirnigen Moralvorstellungen in der konservativen US-Provinz bleiben ihnen nur getrennte Wege. Die Cowboys heiraten, gründen Familien - und kommen doch nicht voneinander los. Nur heimlich können sie über die Jahre bei ihren seltenen Treffen in der Wildnis ihren Gefühlen freien Lauf lassen.

Most people when they hear that name think of the Army base in North Carolina. At least that's true here in the East.

The town in California is up a ways in the north on CA 1 not too far from the terminus at US 101; not sure of Brokies going to either place, I'm afraid.

Because of our frontier history, there are quite a few towns and cities with Fort in their names.

Fort Macleod is named after a North-West Mounted Police (predecessor of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police) post established in 1874.

I know I asked this earlier but does anyone here think the money BBM makes from various screenings over the years since its original release is added to its worldwide gross?  I wonder if the film will ever receive a international theatrical re-release? Do you think you could push its international gross even higher than what it is? I think one day it could reach the billion dollar mark.  I'm sure someday it will be over subsequent re-releases and adjusting it for inflation but that will take a long time and I won't be around to see that.

I don't think it gets added in unless a film is in re-release.

The amount that Brokeback has made in screenings after April 2006 wouldn't add up to much. A few of the larger screenings were free and the film was provided free of charge by Focus Features. The last time I attended a screening in San Francisco I doubt there were more than 30 people in the theater.

We couldn't even get a full house in L.A. for the 5th anniversary, and I talked Diana Ossana into attending that one. Unfortunately it was kind of a late decision on her part so we didn't have much time to get the word out. It took me over 6 months of begging and pleading to convince her:)  I'm so sorry I didn't have a video camera for her visit with us at the museum. She talked with us for almost an hour.

I don't think it gets added in unless a film is in re-release.

The amount that Brokeback has made in screenings after April 2006 wouldn't add up to much. A few of the larger screenings were free and the film was provided free of charge by Focus Features. The last time I attended a screening in San Francisco I doubt there were more than 30 people in the theater.

We couldn't even get a full house in L.A. for the 5th anniversary, and I talked Diana Ossana into attending that one. Unfortunately it was kind of a late decision on her part so we didn't have much time to get the word out. It took me over 6 months of begging and pleading to convince her:)  I'm so sorry I didn't have a video camera for her visit with us at the museum. She talked with us for almost an hour.

Well, I suppose people didn't attend the film because a lot of people don't go to screenings of films usually. Just because people don't flock to screenings of the film over the years does not mean that it isn't popular or not well-liked.  I mean it has been nearly a decade since the film was released so they hype dies down a bit. That's common for any successful movie.  I thought that the money from frequent showings would be added to it's overall gross if its being shown in a theater.  I'm sure BBM is over the 200 million dollar mark if you adjust it for inflation.

Do you think it would be a good idea.....now that things are moving along (well ..in most places) with Gay Mariage
and people being more accepting of Gay people ....plus the speech that the Pope made the other day (what a surprise that was)......that BBM should have a really publicised showing at main cinemas and theatres again?? More or less saying and showing how far we have come since these days  ??
I think it ought to be re shown again in a blaze of publicity.....and not just be shown at Forums requests (like ours) in
more or less small independent cinemas,

What do you think ??

^^^^^^^^^^

When I saw the Pope's speech, this was more or less what I thought as well. But then, we're Brokies, so we're biased.
As much as I'd like it to happen, I don't think it will.

I'm still unsure about the film's status nowadays, particularly in Europe.  It's considered a classic, epic, that's a fact - but groundbreaking? As John and Brandi posted earlier, that hype has died down after all these years, and I doubt many people would go to the theatre if the film was re-released.

I am an atheist so I'm still suspicious of the Pope.  I am a former member of 20 religions and was briefly involved with Roman Catholicism.  The Pope statement on gays and LGBT seemed open-minded but I'm still not entirely sure of his motivations.  The Catholic Church and the LDS Church (of which I am also a former member of) both have used money to discriminate against LGBT in the civil marriage department but there are individual Catholics and Mormons who support same-sex marriage rights and other forms of civil and social equality for LGBT people , same-sex couples and same-sex  headed families.  I'm sure there are people in Europe that enjoy BBM, it's a classic epic as Blue Jean said.  I'd say it's considered groundbreaking even today, it's just that the hype has died down because it has been nearly ten years.  I think some people wouldn't see the film if it were re-released just because of the hype the film originally received but you never know.  Maybe it will be re-released some day but probably not for awhile.

I'm an atheist too, Brandi - so I'm very  suspicious of the Pope as well...  :-\

I don't want to go into religious matters too much here though. Let's just say I think it's rediculous same-sex marriage isn't accepted yet. It is  accepted over here in The Netherlands - it should be accepted everywhere! We're all human beings. What's the difference?

If a movie like BBM has helped to change some people's minds over the years, that's great. I just think it isn't enough (yet), unfortunately.

And now: back on topic!  :)

Really? Cool.  Yes, same-sex marriage should be accepted everywhere. We are all human beings but some idiots don't seem to understand that.  Some of them are religious and use that as their excuse to be a bigot because that it what the ancient creators of their religions believed and they think their not-so-loving god also shares that same hate and bigotry. Well if it does, then that is not a god I want to worship.  I think BBM has changed some minds. Is it enough? Maybe for some people but I do think there will be other things that can change a person's mind.  We all have the right to love and be loved.

Vulcan Celebrates 100 Years





(http://i1123.photobucket.com/albums/l543/jakeheathfan/2-48.jpg)




The city of Vulcan, in Canada, is celebrating their centennial, and the opening of a Star Trek museum.  In the Star Trek franchise, Mr. Spock is a "Vulcan" and the city celebrates their connection to this pop culture movement that includes  various TV series, movies, and memorabilia.

The museum is opening with an exhibition called "Trekcetera", which will feature authentic costumes and props from the show.  The museum was slated to open in June, during Spock Days, but the unique displays weren’t quite right yet, needing inspection from CBS Studios.

Trekcetera is also home to some of southern Alberta’s film history, including items from Brokeback Mountain and the original Superman movie.

Happy to report that the Trekcetera museum in Vulcan is up and running. We visited it the day after it opened, and it was a great  experience.

Of course our only reason to visit was the BBM collection. It's a small but wonderful collection. They have Ma Twists outfit including her shoes, her ring and her watch. I've always liked the clothes she wears, so fitting!, and it was wonderful to see them for real.
They also had Jack's black hat and a pair of his boots.

The next installment had a pair of Ennis' jeans and white T-shirt in it.

And then..........The Table!!!!!!

Yes, the museum owners bought Ennis's apple pie table that was for sale on E-bay! Including a piece of the wall it's attached to and four chairs, it's all there in the museum!
We were so thrilled to see it! And we could actually sit down on Ennis' chair, at Ennis' table!

The owners were equally thrilled to see us as we were to see them and their collection. A really nice gay couple.
We told them about all the Brokie trips to the movie sites that have taken place, and about our forums and how the movie has had such a profound impact on so many people. They didn't know any of this, and they were truly appreciative of it all.

They intend to expand their BBM collection when they get a chance, but even now it's so worth the visit!

I saw this exhibit today at the VMFA.  The exhibit is well laid out, well organized for walking thru it and well worth the admission.  

I now have a new appreciation for the detail and thought in creating the costumes worn by actors spanning from the very earliest films to the most current.   The details and craftsmanship is just "mind blowing" as this is something very difficult to see on the screen but easy to discern in person.  They had MANY iconic items - the famous Marilyn Monroe "grate dress",  Indiana Jones outfit, Superman, the dress from Blade Runner, Neo's outfit from The Matrix, The famous Sharon Stone dress (legs crossed of course...), Dorothy's dress but the red slippers were repros, .. quite quiet a lot of items.

The BBM section of the exhibit was quite impressive.  They had full outfits of both Ennis and Jack - boots, jeans, shirts, coats, gloves and hats situated with Jack standing behind Ennis.  When I first glimpsed it, it reminded me of our "dozy embrace" but I'm sure that would have been too provoking.   They had the large BBM lobby banner behind the mannequins and inscriptions off to each side about the film as well as plaques detailing the clothing, materials, actors characters etc..  

Overall, the show is much better than I expected but then again, the whole exhibit was really good.   It took me about 2 hours to walk thru and read and absorb all of the materials - yes there are several rooms of materials.  If in the vicinity, and enjoy this sort of thing, I highly recommend seeing it.  

One more thing, I never knew (or had forgotten)  that when Gyllenhaal first considered BBM, he viewed himself playing Ennis but Ang Lee wanted him for Jack instead.   That would have been an interesting twist but I think Lee got the roles right.

Unfortunately, no photography was allowed inside the exhibit.  I even saw a staff member chastise a patron for snapping a non-flash photo (or trying) of the BBM section so I did not push my luck.  
Cheers, V.

Yes.  Ultimately, time is the final arbitrator for whether the film remains relevant and provocative years into its existence.  When reflecting thru the Oscar history, once can find films that when seen today, which continue to resonate.   Here's to BBM joining that rare quality.  V.

Yes.  Most excellent.  Whomever created the exhibit was a pro!! The only way the BBM items would have been improved would have been using the "dozy embrace..."  Regardless, it will bring flashbacks from the film to mind for sure!   You see the same careful work throughout though with many other costumes.  In some cases, they just cannot do it such as with Monroe's dress or that emerald green dress Nightly wore in Atonement - just to fragile and too valuable.

Unfortunately, no photography was allowed inside the exhibit.  I even saw a staff member chastise a patron for snapping a non-flash photo (or trying) of the BBM section so I did not push my luck.  
Cheers, V.

So far, there aren't yet plans for an American production, though Wuorinen says that there have been "nibbles" of interest,
and there will be a DVD of the Madrid production.

Oh Glen, you just reminded me of a funny experience I had.

It was when the Oxford gathering was being planned.  Someone on the board mentioned looking into renting a private plane to take a group of Brokies from the east coast to London.  I decided to see if it was possible, and found a site online.  It asked me to enter my phone number, and then gave me a list of prices.  After seeing the prices, I'm sure I looked like this:

(http://theblacksphere.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/pearlclutching.jpg)


So I came back here and reported on my findings.

Two days later, my cell phone rang with an outside number.  I usually don't pick them up, but this time I did, and was suddenly connected to a rep from the plane rental company (remember, I had to enter my phone number) who began to question me on my travel needs!  LOL  I was so shocked all I could do was stammer at first!

Week five: The West

No exploration of the American landscape is complete without a consideration of the West. Long held in the national imaginary as a place of possibility and expansive horizons, Westerns have also problematically excluded minorities and stereotyped Native American. This week’s films address those issues, representing a West that is different from that seen in John Ford pictures, but nonetheless in conversation with it.

Required viewing: Brokeback Mountain (Lee, 2005)

Six week course every Tuesday evening 7-9pm from 19 August to 23 September 2014
Course leader: Chris Lloyd
Tickets are £70 / £65 Concessions / £60 Members

This course aims to survey the American continent, from its cities to its swamps, from the open West to the blurry border with Mexico. Looking at a selection of mainstream and indie films, we will analyse the ways in which the United States has been presented on the big screen, emphasising the significance of landscape and place. In focusing on the land and its variations, we will gain not only a sense of place as geographical, but also place as inhabited, as bearing the traces of culture and ideology and politics.
NB - the full films WILL NOT be shown during the classes, but extracts will be shown to support the discussions.

Oh, to be in England now that April’s there   
And whoever wakes in England sees, some morning, unaware,   
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf   
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,   
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
In England—now!   
 
And after April, when May follows   
And the white-throat builds, and all the swallows!   
Hark, where my blossom’d pear-tree in the hedge   
Leans to the field and scatters on the clover
Blossoms and dewdrops—at the bent spray’s edge—   
That ’s the wise thrush: he sings each song twice over   
Lest you should think he never could re-capture   
The first fine careless rapture!   
And, though the fields look rough with hoary dew,
All will be gay when noontide wakes anew   
The buttercups, the little children’s dower,   
Far brighter than this gaudy melon-flower!

Each year the Museum screens more than 400 films in a stimulating mix of the classic and the contemporary. With live music for silent films, restored prints from the world's leading archives, and outstanding new films from the international festival circuit, Museum programs are recognized for their quality as well as their scope. The Museum’s diverse screening program presents a panoramic view of the moving image, from the global discoveries presented in the annual showcase First Look to the popular ongoing series See It Big!, which celebrates the excitement and immersive power of big-screen moviegoing.

Time to Vote!

Librarian of Congress James H. Billington seeks nominations for the National Film Registry. Public nominations play a key role when the Librarian of Congress and Film Board are considering their final selections. To be eligible for the Registry, a film must be at least 10 years old and be “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

For consideration, please forward recommendations (limit 50 titles per year) via email to: dross@loc.gov . Please include the date of the film nominated (i.e. 2005) , and number your recommendations:
(i.e. 1. Brokeback Mountain), please; alphabetizing would be nice, too. No need to include justifications for your nominations unless the films are not well known (not listed in IMDb, for example). And if you would, please tell us how you learned of the Registry.

Title: Re: Brokeback Mountain Screenings and Related Events
Post by: BayCityJohn on September 18, 2014, 10:10:54 PM
No. They just need to update the list for 2015. I emailed Donna Ross to remind her.

The list only goes to 2004, so don't we have to wait till next year to recommend it?

I've recommended a film or two every year. They used to make their announcements for
the list the week between Christmas and New Year's; last year they did it on December 18th.

Apparently you can start submitting choices for the next list before that, but, and it's only
my opinion, I've always thought it best to wait until after they've announced the list. Maybe
it's just my sense of timing, but submitting for the next year before they've announced the
previous year is like starting an election campaign for the next election before the previous
one is finished. After all, the list we hope Brokeback Mountain is on won't be announced for
15 months. As Linda pointed out, the list isn't even updated yet.

Their FAQ page says:

Q: Do many people nominate films to the Registry?
A: We received more than 2,000 public nominations for the 2013 Registry, representing nearly 3,500 discrete titles for a total of 7,300 public votes.

Interesting, I would've thought that more than 2,000 public nominations would've been submitted,

For consideration, please forward recommendations (limit 50 titles per year) via email to: dross@loc.gov . Please include the date of the film nominated (i.e. 2005) , and number your recommendations:
(i.e. 1. Brokeback Mountain), please; alphabetizing would be nice, too. No need to include justifications for your nominations unless the films are not well known (not listed in IMDb, for example). And if you would, please tell us how you learned of the Registry.

Since I've only submitted one or two suggestions a year in the past (submitting up to 50 just seems to lessen
the impact of what you'd like to see on the list!) I had always written a reason or two (justification) why I felt
it should be included. The above says "no need to include justifications" but it doesn't say you couldn't.

Anyway, if you're allowed to start voting now, I guess people can, but I'm going to wait until after
the 2014 list is announced.

I know that there's only a few films that have been chosen for the registry on their first year of eligibilty.

P.S.: Isn't Heath Ledger eligible now for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

I certainly hope that the Library of Congress will include "Brokeback Mountain" in the National Film Registry someday.  The film has had a strong political, social and cultural impact in the U.S. It's interesting to see how often "Brokeback Mountain" is screened at film events.
Title: Re: Brokeback Mountain Screenings and Related Events
Post by: Lyle (Mooska) on November 08, 2014, 01:49:27 PM

As noted above it is now eligible to be considered and you can write an email at
the above link to nominate it for inclusion.

It may be just me, but I just don't like to do it until after the list for this year
comes out - usually in December. To me it's like considering movies for awards
for next ear before this year's come out.

I'll mention this alot again after it happens.

But if it's between doing it now or not at all, please do so now!

Celebrate the ten year anniversary of the three-time Academy Award winning film Brokeback Mountain. Relive the epic romance that explores the lives of two young men (played by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal), a ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection.

Ang Lee’s heartbreaking film has become "the most honoured movie in cinematic history". Brokeback Mountain became a cultural phenomenon, capturing an era shaping the future of queer cinema. The AFI-winning performance of late Australian actor Heath Ledger as Ennis Del Mar is even more haunting and powerful ten years on. It continues to have a huge impact on both film and culture a decade after its initial release, as the film remains an exquisite and, sadly, still very relevant exploration of love in a homophobic and destructive world.

This classic on the big screen for a new generation is an absolute must.

Tue, Feb 17

Part of Upset at the Oscars.
Aka “So…you lost to CRASH?” The sad story of BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN and the 2005 Academy Awards are still fresh in the minds of many. The tremendous momentum of Ang Lee’s “gay cowboy movie” made it seem all-too-destined for greatness, but the so-called “steak eaters” of the Academy must’ve had their way. Nonetheless, the 2005 film stands as a unique Western spectacle (à la Howard Hawks’ RED RIVER, another nominee snubbed in its time) and a sterling achievement in Heath Ledger’s all-too-brief career.

I'm bumping up this post as a reminder to everyone on this Valentine's Day weekend that we can vote for a movie we LOVE to be included in the next selection of films to the National Film Registry. One of the criteria is that films have to be at least ten years old, so this is the first year Brokeback Mountain is eligible!

Only a very few have made it on their first try. so send your VOTE to the link provided. There's also a link with info about the film registry, it's purpose, etc.
 
By the way, the website says nothing about having to be from the United States to send in your vote, so don't let that stop you!  (It IS a Government agency, though, so they may be spying on your IP address!  LOL!   J/K! )

Time to Vote!

LOVE
October - December 2015
Films to fall in love with. Films to break your heart.

When did you last kiss in a cinema? When did you last cry? Could you still believe in romance? Or is it just a fairy tale, a movie you once saw?

Film and TV’s most seductive illusion is to immerse us in the intensity and passion of other people’s lives and loves. The best love stories have a timeless quality, but any history of romance on screen must reflect the transformations wrought by the sexual revolution and the progress of LGBT rights, which fundamentally question and update our notions of romantic love. Our season celebrates a broad sweep of film and TV, from the swooning silent era to the present day, including Hollywood melodrama, British period drama, Bollywood song and dance and the European erotic thriller.

Three key themes arise within our two-month season: The Power of Love presents epic tales that show the struggle to hold on to tenderness, and each other; Fools For Love offers romantic comedies filled with warmth, wit, charm and poignancy; and Fatal Attractions expose the follies of desire, the violence of passion, and the intensity of obsession.

Open your heart.

BFI Love Season. My local Vue cinema in the UK is showing BBM as part of the season on 22nd. Nov, one performance only. Brokies outside London might find it's being screened in your regional area. Worth checking.

Message from Diana:

"Thank you all who came so far to see Brokeback on the big screen at The Loft. The 35 mm print was stunning. Larry and I both are deeply touched by how this film has affected each of you. And I am so lucky, so grateful, to have played a part in its long journey and introduction into your lives. And to each of you in this group and beyond, your stories, your lovely gifts, and the ways in which Brokeback has changed your lives mean more to me than any award ever could. Truly..."

Wow!  No screenings/events posted about in over a year.

I have one to post about though I have no background information.  I have
some friends in SAG and they belong to the SAG Film Society where they pay
a fee to attend screenings of films a year at a time.  I am luckily and often
invited by any one of them as a guest.

A week ago one of them emailed me and said they got an email to attend a screening
of Brokeback Mountain at the Arclight Theatre on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood, Thursday,
January 12.  He asked if I wanted to go and that he was going whether I could or not.
I replied immediately that I did want to go.  I then went to the Arclight to see if there
was any information about it listed as they often have special kinds of film events through
the year.  There was no information.

I talked to my friend later on and asked if SAG had ever sent around screening invitations
to an older movie before and he could not remember any time that they had and doesn't
know why they are having this one.  I don't know, either, I guess I'll find out tomorrow!

When the film came out, the Arclight is the last place I saw it during its first run, before we
had any special or revival screenings. At the time they had a costume display from the film
including the iconic shirts that had not yet been auctioned off!

This is where I saw BBM for the first time, Lyle,  with other Brokies in March 2006. They still had the costumes displayed.

Here are some pics of the supper we had after the movie. We sat and ate and discussed the movie for 4 hours and closed the restaurant down.

Hi, y'all!

It rained almost all day in Los Angeles yesterday--and I am NOT complaining, it's been years
since we've had many days of rain like this and even days with no rain, but cloudy all day. I
am loving it. But it did make it seem like I'd never get to this screening last night, but bottom
line:  I DID!

I still don't know why SAG had a screening of this last night. Maybe they do on occasion, but my SAG
friend probably just ignores those emails because he works and isn't inclined to go to them. He doesn't
really seem to know himself much about it, but he did mention at one point that they had a screening of
"Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" last night.

But who cares! Right? We checked in at a table and they gave us two tickets to enter. They just said
"Private Screening" on them, in Theatre #1. (Of course!)

There were not many people attending this screening. Only around 20-25 tops.  It didn't matter to me,
I hadn't seen it in a movie theatre for around 7-8 years.  It was a perfect screening. Perfect picture,
perfect sound, perfect movie!  All the way through I kept flashing back to so many things.  Things related
to the forum and gatherings we've had and the people I've met in person and online. The movie seemed
to fly by so quickly.  It couldn't have been any more perfect. I have to say, too, that the 20-25 people there
must have all felt the same about this movie, too, because every single person stayed all the way through
the credits. And when the lights came up no one was in a hurry to leave, either. The Arclight staff waiting on
the side to check the theatre were probably wondering why we weren't moving.

Linda, it's so appropriate you posted those pictures! I mentioned that the Arclight is the last place I saw it
during it's first run and it was in March of 2006 when you guys saw it, too!  Wouldn't it be crazy if I'd seen
it when you were all in there, as well? (I had been stepping into the forum at that point, but I wouldn't have
known all of you yet.)

And on the way out I was telling my friend that when I had seen it there a costume display from the film was
there--and your pictures appear today for concrete evidence of that!  Can you believe the shirts were there
at that time and would subsequently be sold for a fortune?!  (And fortunately they've been shared by the owner
since then.) And some forum members have a lot of the others!  In one scene I suddenly recalled the AMPAS
screening when all of a sudden I recognized the shirt on screen was being worn by the person sitting in the row
in front of me. (John!)  Of course I reached out and touched it!  I always think of John, too, when the postcard
arrives telling Ennis that Jack will be arriving to see him on Sept. 24th, because we both share that birthday!

I am so happy I was invited and went to this screening last night, regardless of why SAG had it!  At the end of
the film when you see the dozy embrace scene and then see how Jack has aged, it's hard to believe the movie
was out eleven years ago.  I also noticed that when we left the theatre, there was an 11 p.m. screening in that
theatre of Nocturnal Animals. A Jake double feature.

As we passed through the lobby and I was thinking of when I had seen the Brokeback Mountain costume display,
I noticed some new costumes being displayed.  There were displays for Twentieth Century Women and for my
new movie favorite for this year, La La Land.

As I was waiting in the cold night air for the bus on Santa Monica Blvd. and Vine Street, I looked up into the sky,
partially filled with clouds, to see a huge bright full moon; the same one shining over Jack while watching the
sheep up on Brokeback Mountain.

...sigh...

hi lyle,

it's called los balcones (https://www.zagat.com/r/balcones-del-peru-los-angeles) and it's just around the corner from the arclight...

i haven't been there in years, but now i am craving eight of their little caramel cookies. :D







Title: Re: Brokeback Mountain Screenings and Related Events
Post by: gnash on February 06, 2017, 03:39:19 PM

thank you for your wonderful brokeback memory, lyle. i saw brokeback at the arclight too, what a great venue. was great to see the costumes on display. who knew we would see them again at the castro, and other places too, like the max factor museum in hollywood.

i also saw BBM at the aero in santa monica (where we sat in the front row, just three feet from heath and jake!) for the march 06 screening and q & a, and at theatres in beverly hills, glendale, burbank, and in northridge.. LOL. i think i watched in "only" 11 times in theaters, dragging friends who hadn't seen it, or who wanted to see it again, or just by myself.. only 11 times or so, because soon after that i received an academy award screener and was able to watch it at home. still, it's so delicious on the big screen, ya know?

however, my favorite experience was when i went to the galleria in sherman oaks and watched it by myself for a matinee. there was just a small crowd for the movie, as it was during the week in the early afternoon.

this was the screening where a loud woman kept loudly exclaiming "oy vey!" and "disgusting!" at any scene she found to be repulsive or not to her liking. so annoying, and others were telling her to shut up, but we all know brokeback was getting insane reactions from audiences all over the place. i couldn't fault her for voicing the deep emotions that the movie stirred in her, as she obviously had her own story to tell.

anyway... right when the movie started, just as the truck was snaking along that twilight darkened road, i saw a lone figure enter the theater. there he was, standing in a slowly disappearing shaft of yellow light from lobby as the theater doors closed. his lanky body was silhouetted as he stood in place for a moment to allow his eyes to adjust to the darkness of the auditorium. then, he took the stairs in twos, easily climbing toward the middle of the room, and he slid into a spot maybe five seats from mine.

as you can imagine, i was captivated. he was young, mid-twenties, and he wore a black hat like jack twist. he had tight jeans, and a rodeo buckle. a big one. shiny -- i shit you not. he wore a button down shirt, too, but i forgot if it was patterned or just blue.

he sat down and took his cover off. short, close cropped hair. i could see his noble profile. his hands were folded, almost reverently, over his ample basket (hey, i notice everything, lol)... he was tall, and he slid down a little in his seat.

i spent parts of the movie bemoaning the rude woman (who finally left, thank god, dragging her husband with her, but not before shouting "this movie is DEEE-SGUSTING!" at the bottom of the stairs) and other parts staring at this cowboy, who sat near enough so i could see his chest rise and fall. he would gasp almost inaudibly at certain scenes. the FNIT. the SNIT. when joe caught them horsing around, he squirmed a bit in his chair. i did too.

he laughed a few times too. we all do. it's why the movie is so damn good, you laugh, you cry, you break a little inside.

then it happened --jack drove up to the riverton apartment and ennis bounded down the stairs. the kiss unfolded. was it the passion of their embrace that brought wetness to this cowboy's eyes, or was it from a pain he had to endure? i saw it, the sparkle of a tear running down his cheek.

the kiss lasted longer than he could endure. he gripped the armrest of his chair. his legs seemed to stiffen. then alma appeared at the door, and the cowboy jerked, and i heard a choked sob, and he suddenly grabbed his hat and bolted out of the room.

he did not leave out of disgust like the woman who left earlier, but, i suspect, because he was married himself, just like jack and ennis. like the glint of reflected light on his cheeks, there a glittery band of gold on his left hand, too.

the rest of the movie was a blur. i was caught up in anticipation, hoping that the cowboy just had to catch a breather and would come back to finish the movie. i wondered if it was his first time seeing brokeback (this was probably two months after it first opened). maybe he got popcorn. maybe his bladder was bursting. i held out hope, but he never came back into the theater.

now i wonder if he was able to sneak away and see it again to the end. i wonder if he watches it on DVD, if he is still married, if he was able to fix it, or if he's just standing it, like so many men in rural america do.

mind you, this was in the valley of los angeles county. but we have cowboys here, too. maybe he rode down from lancaster to see the movie. maybe he was from sylmar, not so far away, where there are farms and horse ranches, who knows. but a real cowboy, in sherman oaks, punctuated by the enraged crazy lady shouting expletives? it was my most memorable screening of BBM, for sure.


:D

V.

it was definitely an experience. i'd already seen the movie around 10 times or so, so it really was almost more interesting to watch his reactions than to stare at the screen. i wasn't invasive, at least i hope not. he chose to sit in front of me. i was in the middle, he was nearer to the aisle. let's just say that after he left i totally wasn't thinking about the movie anymore. his reaction had left me reeling.

Sigh. I wonder if he reads here  ;)

anyway... right when the movie started, just as the truck was snaking along that twilight darkened road, i saw a lone figure enter the theater. there he was, standing in a slowly disappearing shaft of yellow light from lobby as the theater doors closed. his lanky body was silhouetted as he stood in place for a moment to allow his eyes to adjust to the darkness of the auditorium. then, he took the stairs in twos, easily climbing toward the middle of the room, and he slid into a spot maybe five seats from mine.

as you can imagine, i was captivated. he was young, mid-twenties, and he wore a black hat like jack twist. he had tight jeans, and a rodeo buckle. a big one. shiny -- i shit you not. he wore a button down shirt, too, but i forgot if it was patterned or just blue.

he sat down and took his cover off. short, close cropped hair. i could see his noble profile. his hands were folded, almost reverently, over his ample basket (hey, i notice everything, lol)... he was tall, and he slid down a little in his seat.

i spent parts of the movie bemoaning the rude woman (who finally left, thank god, dragging her husband with her, but not before shouting "this movie is DEEE-SGUSTING!" at the bottom of the stairs) and other parts staring at this cowboy, who sat near enough so i could see his chest rise and fall. he would gasp almost inaudibly at certain scenes. the FNIT. the SNIT. when joe caught them horsing around, he squirmed a bit in his chair. i did too.

he laughed a few times too. we all do. it's why the movie is so damn good, you laugh, you cry, you break a little inside.

then it happened --jack drove up to the riverton apartment and ennis bounded down the stairs. the kiss unfolded. was it the passion of their embrace that brought wetness to this cowboy's eyes, or was it from a pain he had to endure? i saw it, the sparkle of a tear running down his cheek.

the kiss lasted longer than he could endure. he gripped the armrest of his chair. his legs seemed to stiffen. then alma appeared at the door, and the cowboy jerked, and i heard a choked sob, and he suddenly grabbed his hat and bolted out of the room.

he did not leave out of disgust like the woman who left earlier, but, i suspect, because he was married himself, just like jack and ennis. like the glint of reflected light on his cheeks, there a glittery band of gold on his left hand, too.

the rest of the movie was a blur. i was caught up in anticipation, hoping that the cowboy just had to catch a breather and would come back to finish the movie. i wondered if it was his first time seeing brokeback (this was probably two months after it first opened). maybe he got popcorn. maybe his bladder was bursting. i held out hope, but he never came back into the theater.

now i wonder if he was able to sneak away and see it again to the end. i wonder if he watches it on DVD, if he is still married, if he was able to fix it, or if he's just standing it, like so many men in rural america do.

mind you, this was in the valley of los angeles county. but we have cowboys here, too. maybe he rode down from lancaster to see the movie. maybe he was from sylmar, not so far away, where there are farms and horse ranches, who knows. but a real cowboy, in sherman oaks, punctuated by the enraged crazy lady shouting expletives? it was my most memorable screening of BBM, for sure.


:D


To me, what is really disgusting is that rude women's comments, the ushers should have asked her to leave the auditorium.  Did she not know what the film was about before she bought a ticket?

I liked "Philadelphia", but I think that "Brokeback Mountain" is better in my opinion.  I do think that "Philadelphia" somewhat portayed the LGBT characters in a stereotypical fashion.
