BAMcinemaFest Brings Stars, Continues Thru Weekend
BAMcinemaFest 2016 is going into the final weekend. There is still time to participate in this year's festival. On Thursday, June 23 at Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 1 there will be an outdoor screening of Kiki. Co-presented by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy, this profile of New York City's youthful vogue culture goes behind the scenes and deeper into the LGBT youth of color injustices experienced from four years of footage. The film, directed by Sara Jordeno and featuring activist and cultural leader Twiggy Pucci Garçon, will screen at sundown.
The festival opened June 15 at the BAM Harvey Theater with a screening of Little Men. Directed by Ira Sachs, the film stars Greg Kinnear and young actors Theo Taplitz and Michael Barbieri. Taplitz and Barbieri become neighbors and friends and soon after, a feud ignites between the parents over a rent hike. Representing the film at the opening night screening were writer/director Ira Sachs, actors Greg Kinnear, Theo Taplitz, Michael Barbieri, Mauricio Bustamante, Stella Schnabel, Madison Wright, producer Lucas Joaquin, and co-writer Mauricio Zacharias. Also in attendance were Kathleen Turner, Lauren Hutton, Zoe Kazan, Mamie Gummer, Josh Mond, Nicolas Pesce, Crystal Moselle, Arturo Castro, Mukunda Angulo, Narayana Angulo, Josh Pais, Keith Poulson, and BAM President Katy Clark.
