See “Fagbug” at UHP Movie Night [Dinner and a Movie]

28 Sep

Join us Thursday, October 6th 7:30pm in the UHP Club room for movie night!  We bring the movie, and the dinner.  You just show up.  This is open to everyone at GW, so bring a friend!

Fagbug is a Volkswagen Beetle owned by Erin Davies of Albany vandalized on the 11th Annual National Day of Silence in 2007.  Because it sported a rainbow sticker, Erin’s car was spray painted with the words “fag” and “u r gay” placed on the driver’s side window and hood of her car. Despite initial shock and embarrassment, Erin decided to embrace what happened by leaving the graffiti on her car and, in response, put her studies on hold to embark upon a video-documented 55,000 mile journey across the United States, during which she interviewed 500 people and spoke out against hate crimes.  This 2009 documentary is a touching, sometimes upsetting, and surprisingly funny tour of America’s changing attitudes toward LGBT citizens.

A child’s accusation has life-shattering consequences in this Oscar-nominated 1961 adaptation of Lillian Hellman’s celebrated play from legendary director William Wyler. Starring Academy Award winners Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine and co-starring James Garner, this landmark film is “one of the most finely wrought dramas in the history of the screen” (Motion Picture Herald).

Karen (Hepburn) and Martha (MacLaine) are the headmistresses of an exclusive school for girls. When they discipline a malicious little girl, the vindictive child twists an overheard comment into slander and accuses her teachers of “questionable” behavior. Soon the gossip engulfs the school’s community, with repercussions that are swift, crushing and tragic.
