Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from B. Ruby Rich, one of the most distinguished film critics of her generation. Rich joins us to discuss her most recent book, New Queer Cinema, which examines the remarkable convergence of independent filmmaking and queer filmmakers in the late 1980s and early 90s that introduced such figures as Gus Van Sant, Todd Haynes, and Christine Vachon to wider audiences. Currently a professor in the Film+Digital Media department at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Rich has served as a programmer and juror at festivals around the world and has been published in the Guardian (UK), the Nation, Village Voice, New York Times, and Sight and Sound. Join us for a reception and signing in the Wexner Center lobby following the presentation.
