A LEGACY TRIBUTE TO PAT ROCCO

Synopsis:

Wednesday, June 17 – 7:30 PM

OUTFEST WEDNESDAY

A LEGACY TRIBUTE TO PAT ROCCO: EARLY ROCCO EROTICA AND OTHER TREASURES, Approx. 120 min. From the late 1960s through the 1970s, activist and filmmaker Pat Rocco mastered the art of gay male erotic films. His work developed beyond the nudie cutie into thoughtful and at times dramatic glimpses into gay life of that era. Many of these non-pornographic romps and love stories debuted at Los Angeles Park Theatre. Rocco also shot extensive footage of gay demonstrations, parades, marches and festivals. These documentaries contain some of the only existing footage of the beginnings of the gay rights movement in the United States. Please join Christopher Street West, the One National Gay & Lesbian Archives, Outfest and the UCLA Film & Television Archive as we host a unique salute to this LGBT legend with screenings of Rocco classics. This Outfest Wednesdays screening will span his eclectic career with a focus on his early erotic work and promises to be a fun and rousing evening!
