Reel in the Closet - film screening
Time & Location
About the Event
Shrewsbury LGBT+ History, in partnership with The Clowder Group invite you to Reel in the Closet - a documentary that reveals the lives of LGBTQ people from the past through moments from hundreds of never before seen home movies dating back to the 1930s. The story of queer cinema is becoming better known, but this documentary, for the first time, speaks through these 'snapshots', made by LGBTQ people themselves at the time. Many such home movies were, and probably still are being destroyed, so this documentary is a remarkable record.
