Thanks to everyone who came out to the Outfest Wednesday screening of Ma Vie En Rose! The programming director told me that’s definitely the most successful Outfest Weds we’ve had in some time.
Next in the series:
A FINISHED LIFE: THE GOODBYE & NO REGRETS TOUR
Wednesday, December 3, 7:30pm Rigler Theatre @ The Egyptian
Dirs. Michelle Boyaner, Barbara Green, 2007, USA, 81 min.
This powerful and moving documentary captures the journey of Gregg Gour, a 48-year-old gay man with AIDS, given six months to live, who takes the road trip of his life. HIV-positive for 24 years and unwilling to die a long and painful death, Gour decides to go off his medication. He buys an RV and travels across the United States with his dog Cody, saying final goodbyes to family and friends. Boyaner and Green capture Gour’s most personal moments, resulting in an honest and unflinching chronicle of a man’s decision to live the final chapter of his life on his own terms.

Outfest celebrates a 9th annual screening of this event that has become a holiday tradition, the AUNTIE MAME extravaganza!

Who doesn’t know every line of this glorious camp classic? Who doesn’t want to wear those fabulous costumes? Come share the joy with fellow Mame-lovers as we celebrate the glory of beloved star Rosalind Russell and a magnificent supporting cast in this raucous, riotous movie masterpiece!
