LGBTQ film series: Weekend – 10/16 at 7pm

All Love: An LGBTQ Film Series
In celebration of LGBTQ History Month, Fairfield University presents a series dedicated to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) experiences through film on three consecutive Tuesdays in October. All films are free and open to the general public. Light refreshments will be served and all screenings will take place in the Barone Campus Center (BCC) upper level in Room 200. These films are First-Year Experience (FYE) approved events.

Weekend
Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m.

Two people meet in a bar and have a one-night stand that bleeds into the weekend. Intimacies are shared, hearts are opened, and viewpoints are challenged. It just so happens the two are young men. Russell is slightly closeted, Glenn is out and a bit angry. Post-gay politics are explored. The cinematography is lush, the styling reminiscent of British Kitchen Sink Dramas. Winner of 15 awards worldwide, Weekend is the kind of honest romantic film that lingers with you long after the credits roll.
