Queer Film Festival plays Thursday
The annual Queer Film Festival returns to the UO campus from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Thursday at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.
The featured film is "You Belong to Me," in which a young New York architect becomes obsessed with a male prostitute who moves into his building. The potential romance is complicated when the architect himself becomes an object of desire for his eccentric landlady (Patti D'Arbanvile).
Director Sam Zalutsky will lead a question-and-answer session afterward.
The program also includes Gus Van Sant's six-minute segment from "Paris, Je T'aime," "Le Marais," and an infamous example of underground Arabian erotica, "Flaming Creatures," banned in 22 states and four countries in 1963.
The films all screen in the Art Lecture Hall at the museum, 1430 Johnson Lane. Admission is free.
Schnitzer Cinema samples Joyce
Also screening this week at the UO art museum is the monthly Schnitzer Cinema program, which for April features the Eugene premiere of "Passages From James Joyce's Finnegans Wake."
"Passages" is a rarely screened production of the literary classic that uses as a springboard the stage adaptation by Mary Manning. It is being shown in conjunction with the museum's current exhibit: "The Art of the Book: Collection Selections and Work by Johanna Drucker."
The screening will start at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. Food, drinks and cafe seating are offered through the March Museum Cafe.
Admission is free. For more information, call 541-346-3027.
