CASA SUSANNA

CASA SUSANNA

US PREMIERE In the sexually repressive atmosphere of the 1950s and early ’60s, a Latino broadcaster and his wig-making wife create a clandestine haven for cross-dressers in a small Catskills resort. With only old photographs and the oral histories of two of the last surviving members of this early chapter of trans identity, filmmaker Sébastien Lifshitz rescues a fascinating history from obscurity. – Jaie Laplante

The in-person screening will be followed by a Conversation/Q&A with Sébastien Lifshitz, moderated by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein, author of the play CASA VALENTINA.

All in-person screening venues provide hearing impaired listening devices upon request with venue management.
