First screened in September 2016
Director: Robert L. Camina. Documentary about the deadly 1973 arson at the Up Stairs Lounge in New Orleans, a hate crime perpetrated as a homophobic act. Screenplay: Robert L. Camina. Twitter Capsule:
A valuable history of the gay club, moving tribute to those who died, and complex characterization of the killer.
As filmmaking, Upstairs Inferno isn't much to write home about, but especially after the Pulse shooting, its historical value is clear.
