Generations: Youth and Elders Making Movies

This yearly program highlights films created in Frameline and TILT’s local Generations Film Workshop, as well as five other films featuring the powerful voices of youth and elders across the country. In Pepper a fabulous female impersonator happens upon an eight-year-old, and the chance meeting triggers an unlikely friendship. Makeup and makeovers, along with petty theft, lead to an identity crisis for a young black butch with a crush in Whitewash. Nine-year-old George is an outcast with a penchant for secrecy but finds an ally in a reclusive neighbor, in the winning Wini + George. Teen activists, local heroes, and filmmaker Phil Siegel explore recent history in the third part of Siegel’s vivid documentary series Coming Out in the 1970s. Two girls work through a crisis in their friendship in Overflow. A young man seeking connection through Internet dating confronts his own unrealistic standards in Perfect Match. Three lost San Franciscans combat a tech worker in search of space in Dolores Park in The Bench. And BART: Building Art, Redefining Tolerance explores how performance arts are essential to building community in the Bay Area.
