Join us for another monthly LGBTQ book club at Pridelines where instead of assigning a book this month, the group plans to screen the movie «Watermelon Woman,» and then discuss the film.

August 8 at Pridelines, 7:00 pm — 9:30 pm (note the time change, to accommodate watching the film)

The Watermelon Woman is a 1996 feature film by filmmaker Cheryl Dunye about Cheryl, a young black lesbian working a day job in a video store while trying to make a film about a black actress from the 1930s known for playing the stereotypical «mammy» roles relegated to black actresses during the period. It was the first feature film directed by a black lesbian.

Thanks are due to our hosts at Pridelines, for sponsoring our Club, and to Jeff Ronci, who keeps us organized and our meetings on track.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: The Club read both parts of Angels in America last year in celebration of the play's 25th Anniversary.
National Theater Live will be screening their current production of Angels in America, starring Nathan Lane and Andrew Garfield, at the Coral Gables Art Cinema in August.

Part 1 «Millenium Approaches» — August 18 — 20, all screenings start at Noon, and run about 4 hours, including 2 intermissions.
Part 2 «Perestroika» — August 25 — 27, all screenings start at Noon, and run about 4 hours, including 2 intermissions.
