LECTURE THEATRE 5. MMU BUSINESS SCHOOL (OVERLOOKING ALL SAINTS PARK):
A documentary about the man who brought us all out of the 'Celluloid Closet'. Director Jeffrey Schwarz looks back at Russo''s life as a film fan, a film critic and latterly as an AIDS activist. In the aftermath of Stonewall (1969), a newly politicised Russo found his voice as an angry critic of LGBT representation in the media. Always defiant, and eloquent, this moving and inspiring documentary tells story of one of the gay movement's most important figures.
Screened as part of Manchester Metropolitan University's 'Seeing Queerly' season, in partnership with LGBT History Month.
