One thought on “2019 Schedule

  1. Paternal Rites — a film by Jules Rosskam | In his passionate first-person essay film, Jules Rosskam examines the secret underbelly of a contemporary Jewish American family as they grapple with the aftereffects of physical and sexual abuse on their present-day lives. This groundbreaking film is about the nature of trauma and memory itself: the ways in which trauma encrypts in uncanny ways; the function of speech and narrative in the process of decryption; and the role of film and filmmaking in the practice of healing. PATERNAL RITES had its world premiere this past February 2018 at MoMA’s prestigious Doc Fortnight film festival in New York City. It was decidedly well received. This October, PATERNAL RITES will be the Documentary Centerpiece at the Tampa Bay International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival as well as screening at the Hamburg International Queer Film Festival and Seattle TWIST. In November, Jules will be giving the keynote address at Pluralities, a national gathering in San Francisco presented by the Doc Film Institute at SF State that brings together thought leaders and innovators who are pushing the field forward for nonfiction forms in the 21st century. PATERNAL RITES will have its San Francisco premiere as part of that week’s program. In addition to its world premiere at MoMA’s Doc Fortnight, PATERNAL RITES has been an official selection on the 2018 slates of many prestigious film festivals including: BFI Flare: London LGBTQ+ Film Festival, Wicked Queer: The Boston LGBT Film Festival, Inside Out 2018: Toronto LGBT Film Festival, XPOSED International Queer Film Festival in Berlin, Kansai Queer Film Festival in Osaka and Kyoto.
