IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK

“You have two fathers committing crimes to bail out a son who has committed no crimes—which is America in a nutshell.” — Barry Jenkins, December 5, Los Angeles*

Jenkins’ IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK—a lyrical cinematic elegy to familial love and shattered lives shot in amber and scored with apprehension—finally arrives in cinemas this week.*

At the recent Film Independent Presents screening in Hollywood, Jenkins and KiKi Layne—who plays Tish in the film—were joined by Out magazine’s Tre’vell Anderson for a post-screening Q & A, and over the weekend, Layne will return to the Arclight for pre- and post-screening conversations with her fellow actors.

GOLDIN’S BALLAD AT MOCA

A digital presentation of Nan Goldin’s original 35mm slide installation THE BALLAD OF SEXUAL DEPENDENCY is on view at MOCA as part of the exhibition REAL WORLDS—BRASSAÏ, ARBUS, GOLDIN.

“Nan’s Bowery loft had no windows or else they were covered and this made her parties long, hilarious, dangerous events. You had no idea what time it was or how light the sky was getting out there. Her guests departed when they could ingest no more and some didn’t leave even then…

“I remember the first telephone conversation I ever had with Nan. ‘I’m among the missing today,’ she said, and hung up.” — Darryl Pinckney, from his essay in Goldin’s exhibition catalogue I’ll Be Your Mirror*
