About â€œThe Groveâ€
The Grove is a film about AIDS, love and the politics of remembrance. The GROVE shows how a community in crisis found healing in nature and unexpectedly ignited a debate about what it means to be a national memorial. Thirty years after the first diagnosed cases of AIDS, how do we mark a time of unimaginable loss? This film is being screened as an advance recognition of World AIDS Day, December 1.
About â€œMom & Dad, I Have Something To Tell Youâ€
“Mom and Dad, I Have Something To Tell You” is a documentary about the journey parents are forced to take once their children tell them they are gay or lesbian. Until now, documentaries about the subject of coming out of the closet have been from the point-of-view of the person taking that step. Now for the first time, we get to understand what happens from the parentsâ€™ perspective.
Filmmaker and Israeli TV star Assi Azar will be in attendance, courtesy of the Israeli Consulate.
