Word Is Out
Stories of Some of Our Lives
First screened in November 2006 / Most recently screened in November 2013
Directors: Mariposa Film Group (Nancy Adair, Peter Adair, Andrew Brown, Rob Epstein, Lucy Massie Phenix, Veronica Selver). Interviews with over two dozen gay men and lesbians about their past and present experiences.

Twitter Capsule: Priceless archive. Modest camera and editing establish intimacy with subjects, pulling out wider at revealing moments.

VOR:   For what I do, teaching and studying history of LGBT cinema, and by extension LGBT experience, this holds enormous value. Great eye-opener for less familiar viewers, too.
