Total runtime 80min
In Coming Together, Ryan Powell captures the social and political vitality of the first wave of movies made by, for and about male-desiring men in the USA after the war. Making a rare UK visit, the American professor will discuss, with reference to Kenneth Anger, the Gay Girls Riding Club and gay liberation-era hardcore, how this generation defiantly challenged legal and cultural norms.
