The Wall Las Memorias is thrilled to be partnering with Outfest in screening I Am Happiness On Earth as part of the upcoming Outfest Los Angeles -- the premier LGBT film festival in the world with eleven days of world-class films and discussions.
Founded by UCLA students in 1982, Outfest is the leading organization that promotes equality by creating, sharing and protecting LGBT stories on the screen. Outfest builds community by connecting diverse populations to discover, discuss and celebrate stories of LGBT lives. Over the past three decades, Outfest has showcased thousands of films from around the world to audiences of nearly a million, educated and mentored hundreds of emerging filmmakers and protected more than 30,000 LGBT films and videos. Outfest Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival is eleven days of world-class films, discussions and parties.
Julián Hernández, one of Mexico's premier queer filmmakers (RAGING SUN, RAGING SKY), returns with this tale of a film director struggling with the line between his sexually charged reality and equally arousing cinematic creations. Will Emiliano be able to sustain his relationship, or will his lust for beauty and meaning lead him elsewhere? Furious couplings between gorgeous men include an exhilaratingly explicit play-within-a-play. Hernández's boldly poetic romance compares with such films as Fellini's 8½ Godard's CONTEMPT, and others exploring the connections among love, sex, creativity, and filmmaking.
I Am Happiness On Earth will be showing at REDCAT on Thu, Jul 17th 9:30pm. Seating is limited, so we’re encouraging everyone to buy tickets in advance.
