John Greyson in the World

October 13, 2013 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM


UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Andrew J. Kuehn Jr. Foundation present “Outfest-UCLA Legacy Project Screening Series.”

Directed by John Greyson

With flourishes of design, costuming, metaphor and music, filmmaker John Greyson dramatizes an 18th-century anecdote of two men, black and white, imprisoned on South Africa’s infamous Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was later incarcerated). Their discovered affair exposes the two to severe persecution as part of a politically motivated witch-hunt.
