Wild Tigers I Have Known
Friends of the region’s thriving GLBT community are invited to join us for Out @ Wex. The weekend-long cinematic celebration features special events including a visit from filmmaker Su Friedrich, our annual Out @ Wex Party, and the world premiere of Reid Farrington’s multimedia play<a href="http://www.wexarts.org/pa/index.php?eventid=4323">Gin and“It.”</a>
Executive-produced by Gus Van Sant, Wild Tigers I Have Known is a dizzying and lyrical look at 13-year-old Logan as he acts out a crush on cool ninth-grader Rodeo.
Stay for a party after tonight's screening to celebrate the Out @ Wex festival and queer cinema at the Wexner Center. Enjoy light hors d'oeuvres and cocktails immediately following the film.
Director Cam Archer visualizes Logan's progress in a hyper-sensual style, utterly reinventing the sexual coming of age genre. (98 mins, video)
Come to the Wexner Center early for a guided tour of the exhibitions Glenn Ligon: Some Changes and Sadie Benning: Suspended Animation. Both artists' works explore issues of sexuality and identity with sensitivity, honesty, and humor. Meet at the entrance to the galleries at 6 PM.
Admission$7 students (tickets required)
