Filmmakers Zackary Drucker, Mariah Garnett and Chris E. Vargas in person!
Los Angeles Filmforum is thrilled to team with Dirty Looks NYC to present Yesterday Once More, a program of queer moving image portraits from the last two years. Documenting four figures who helped to shape and define a public image of queer life (Peter Berlin, Joe Brainard, Liberace and Flawless Sabrina), each filmmaker in Yesterday Once More approaches their subject with the weight of their historical distance and a panache for contemporary performativity.
$10 general, $6 students/seniors; free for Filmforum members. Available by credit card in advance from Brown Paper Tickets at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/319818 or by cash or check at the door.

A salon of influences, DIRTY LOOKS NYC is a New York-based roaming series, an open platform for inquiry, discussion and debate. Designed to trace contemporary queer aesthetics through historical works, Dirty Looks presents quintessential GLBT film and video alongside up-and-coming artists and filmmakers. Dirty Looks exhibits a lineage of queer tactics and visual styles for younger artists, casual viewers and seasoned avant-garde filmgoers, alike. In 2011, Dirty Looks also launched the month-long Dirty Looks: On Location a month of queer interventions in New York City spaces, which was featured in the New York Times and reached 2,500 viewers.
This screening is part of Dirty Looks’ Roadshow initiative, bringing queer experimental film and video across the country in a touring platform. Other Los Angeles events will include: Little Joe Magazine + Dirty Looks present: Mike Kuchar, Feb. 2nd 4PM at the Geffen Contemporary as part of the Los Angeles Art Book Fair; Dirty Looks + Little Joe present Rosa Von Praunheim's City of Lost Souls Feb 3rd 4PM at the Geffen Contemporary as part of the Los Angeles Art Book Fair; and Pickle Surprise: The Eyes of Tom Rubnitz Feb. 9th 7PM at the Billy Wilder Theater, presented by the Outfest/UCLA Legacy Project Screening Series.
This program is supported by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission; the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles; the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, and the Metabolic Studio.
