Pride on Metrograph At Home

Summer is coming on fast, and with it comes Pride Month, a celebration of the LGBTQ+ community that began in the wake of the Stonewall Uprising of 1969 and has continued (and grown) ever since. Metrograph At Home has drummed up a parade of brazenly queer cinema from the likes of Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Alain Guiraudie, Jessica Dunn Rovinelli, and more.

    Directed by Alain Guiraudie | 100 mins | 2013
    Lauded and laureled at Cannes, Guiradie’s understated, simmeringly sensual thriller explores the proximity of Eros and Thanatos in an idyllic, lakeside nude beach/cruising spot—shot for maximum pastoral splendor by DP Claire Mathon—where regular Franc...

  • Totally F***ed Up

    Directed by Gregg Araki | 79 mins | 1993

    Winner of the Jury Prize at Cannes, this is the movie that gained Apichatpong’s distinctive, dreamy vision a new level of recognition on the international stage. A bifurcated narrative, with no clear connection between the film’s two halves,...

    Directed by Todd Haynes | 85 mins | 1991

  • High Heel Nights

    Directed by Beth B | 11 mins | 1994
    Intimate portraits of gay artists and drag performers talking about gender, identity, and all the fine lines around them. Beth B’s short film is a stirring reminder that drag-queen performances may be accepted in the mainstream today, but there was a time when ...

  • Sebastiane

    Directed by Derek Jarman | 90 mins | 1976
    Jarman’s feature debut—co-directed with Humfress—makes blatant the latent homoeroticism in artistic renderings of the biblical story of the martyrdom of St. Sebastian, reveling in the male form while recounting a tale of repressed desire turned to sadism ...
