The Surprise and Surviving the Silence, October 2nd, lakeside at SECCA, 750 Marguerite Drive, Winston-Salem

On Friday, October 2nd, we will screen the fun 5 minute narrative, The Surprise (see above – with director/actor Anita Clark-Anderson joining us!) and the compelling documentary feature, Surviving the Silence: The Untold Story of Two Women in Love Who Helped Change Military Policy.

In the early 1990’s a highly decorated colonel (Patsy Thompson) was forced to expel an army hero (Margarethe Cammermeyer) for being a lesbian.  What no one knew at the time was that the same colonel was herself a closeted lesbian.  Decades later, this truth is exposed in all of its complexity and the three women involved come together, again, to contemplate those events and their impact.

Director, Cindy Abel, will join us in person, and in a pre-recorded Q & A, featuring Barbara Brass, Colonel (Ret.) Patsy Thompson (N.C. native!) and Colonel (Ret.) Margarethe Cammermeyer.  OUT at the Movies Advisory Board Member, Eden Lane, will moderate the Q & A.

Beer, wine, coffee and hot chocolate will be available for purchase.  Ticket link just below.

Twenty-one additional shorts, features, documentaries & narratives!

Twenty-one additional films, as well as the seven listed above will be available for online/digital screening beginning October 2nd at 12:01 AM until October 4th at 11:59 PM.  Many will be followed by live or pre-recorded virtual Q & A’s with directors, producers, actors and/or documentary subjects.
