In a story told in virtually real time, Théo and Hugo meet each other in an underground sex club. They talk and soon lose themselves in the haziness of unbridled desire — a graphic, no-holds-barred encounter that’s most certainly NSFW. Afterwards, the two go outside and drift down the deserted streets of nocturnal Paris. When the men confront the fact that they had unprotected sex, the reality of the situation — one of them is HIV-positive — quickly spoils the mood. The filmmakers display consummate sensitivity in showing two men striving for intimacy in spite of their insecurities, and the lead actors delight with their remarkably intuitive performances and incredible charm.

QFest’s second queer classic — a new restoration of Donna Deitch’s “Desert Hearts” — is an adaptation of the 1964 lesbian-themed novel “Desert of the Heart” by Jane Rule. In 1959, Vivian Bell (Helen Shaver), a 35-year-old English professor, travels to Reno to establish residency in Nevada and obtain a quickie divorce. Staying at a ranch for women waiting for their divorces to be finalized, Vivian meets Cay Rivvers (Patricia Charbonneau), a free-spirited sculptor. When Vivian arrives, Cay notices her immediately, and the tightly controlled and elegant professor is taken aback by the younger woman’s boldness and lack of concern over what others think of her romantic/sexual preferences. After some drunken kisses and confusion, they tentatively start a relationship and fall in love. With the impending finalization of Vivian's divorce, the two must make some tough decisions. Vivian is afraid of what people in her academic circle will think of her relationship with another woman, and Cay is unsure of what she would ever do in New York City.
Based on the 1998 German novel “Die Mitte der Welt” by Andreas Steinhöfel, this sweet coming-of-age film is a story about the universal problems of puberty, friendship, and first love. Seventeen-year-old Phil comes back from a summer camp and returns to the quirky old mansion where he lives. Phil notices that something has changed between his mother and his twin sister — they no longer talk to each other — but he avoids the rift by spending the last days of his summer holidays with best friend Kat. When school begins, the mysterious Nicholas enters the class, and Phil feels drawn to him. They soon engage in a passionate love affair, but the relationship is complicated: Phil remains unsure exactly what Nicholas thinks of him, and his friendship with Kat is strained by jealousy. Between his estranged family members, his envious old friend, and his enigmatic new love, Phil finds it increasingly difficult to identify the center of his world.
QFest veteran director Jennifer Kroot (“To Be Takei”) returns with this intimate portrait of American gay writer Armistead Maupin, best known for his ground-breaking “Tales of the City.” This remarkable doc follows the renowned author’s journey from an intolerant conservative to a writer known for his outrageous wit and open heart. The film examines the life and work of one of the world’s most beloved storytellers, following his evolution from a conservative son of the Old South into a gay-rights pioneer whose novels have inspired millions to claim their own truth. It moves nimbly between playful and poignant and laugh-out-loud funny. With help from his friends (including Neil Gaiman, Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis, Sir Ian McKellen, and Amy Tan), Maupin offers a disarmingly frank look at the path that took him from the jungles of Vietnam to the bathhouses of ’70s San Francisco to the front lines of the American culture war. The world premiere of the film was held at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival.
Beginning Wheel Throwing
6 week class / 2hour / once a week
We will teach you everything you need to learn to make a pot on the wheel, AND… you’ll also gain the many incidental stress-relieving benefits of creating with clay. The gentle turning of the wheel, the centering of the clay and the single-minded focus needed to create pottery brings the potter into a calm, centered place themselves. It’s a terrific way to end a stressful day or start a new adventure.
The Beginner Wheel class is designed for the absolute beginner looking for an introduction to the craft of wheel thrown* pottery. *(From the Old English word “thrawan”, meaning to twist or turn.) This class is also a good place for self-taught or long inactive potters who are looking for a refresher course in the fundamentals of wheel throwing.
Beginners, will receive an introduction to basic throwing techniques: centering clay, forming cylinders, bowls and plate forms. Glazing and surface treatment also covered.
