We Need to Talk About Loving Highsmith
Can we truly love the work of someone whose views can make them hard to love?
20:30—21:45 Thursday 23 March
BFI Reuben Library
- Total running time 75min
Loving Highsmith reveals some disturbing truths about the much-loved writer. But can we truly love the work of someone whose views can make them hard to love? And when we still have relatively few queer cultural icons in the mainstream, does the prospect of losing one sometimes lead us to compromise our values and beliefs? Join us for a programmer-led discussion exploring these questions and more.
This is a free event. Admission is on a first come, first served basis.
See screenings of Loving Highsmith.
