Cured presented by Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020
Tuesday, November 17, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - Friday, December 18, 2020 @ 4:00 pm$10.00
For the Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020, Houston Cinema Arts Society features virtual and drive-in screenings of films in addition to live stream performances, interactive experiences, and Q&A and panels. This year, HCAF celebrates “Urbana,” inspired by the globally popular Spanish-language genre música Urbana, which has its origin in African and the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
As a part of the Houston Cinema Arts Festival 2020 (Nov 12 – Nov 22), Cured will be available on the virtual platform for 24 hours from Nov 17, 4:00 PM. This documentary film tells the story of the fight for a pivotal, but little-known, victory in the movement for LGBTQ equality: the American Psychiatric Association’s 1873 decision to remove homosexuality from its manual for mental illnesses. The screening will be followed by a panel with co-director Bennett Singer and some of the film’s subjects.
