PSU Film is a proud community sponsor of QDoc co-founder and filmmaker David Weissman’s (We Were Here, The Cockettes) project-in-progress screening, Conversations With Gay Elders, Sunday, May 22, 12 PM, Hollywood Theater.
David captures the experiences of gay men of the pre-Stonewall generation in collaboration with younger generation gay men as editors. In a departure from his previous work, David’s focus is on creating multiple in-depth individual character studies rather than a single feature film to create a large, rich depository of these histories for future generations who won’t have direct access to the men who lived them.
This program will feature 2 of the shot “conversations,” edited by two different young editors. These interviews are with San Franciscans Robert Dockendorff (76) who grew up in rural Idaho and Jack Lasner (87), raised in Brooklyn NY. Editor Alex Bohs (25) who is working on the Robert Dockendorff piece will engage in post-screening conversation with David Weissman.
