Hunky Dory ( USA )

Fiction, 85 min

Directed by Michael Curtis Johnson

A bisexual, glam rock dilettante with lofty dreams of becoming a musician takes the stage at seedy dive bars, but his hedonistic lifestyle is put on hold when his ex-girlfriend drops their son off at his high-heeled feet and skips town. Struggling to let go of his musical aspirations, Sidney's life goes into a tailspin as the reality of fatherhood slaps him in the face. Director Michael Curtis Johnson paints a bittersweet portrait of love, sacrifice, and rock 'n' roll, showing us that life isn't always hunky dory.

Thursday, April 14, 7:15pm; The Logan Theater, 2646 N Milwaukee Ave

These C*cksucking Tears ( USA ) CHICAGO PREMIERE

Short Documentary, 16 min

Directed by

In 1973, Pat Haggerty released Lavender Country, the first gay-themed country music album. With only 1,000 copies made, the album soon faded into obscurity. Forty years later, it was rediscovered and lauded by critics as a rare act of unabashed bravery and honesty. These C*cksucking Tears finds Haggerty, now in his 70s, as his long-dormant musical dream comes back to life.

Sunday, April 17, 4:00pm; 1st Ward Chop Shop, 2033 W North Ave
