The Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St., is showing several LGBTQA+ features throughout Pride Month.

Films include:

—Sauvage Wild ( June 7-13 ): A 22-year-old gay hustler cycles through a series of mostly sexual encounters that range from the achingly tender to the harrowingly brutal.

—The Suicide ( June 8 ): The tension arising between the demands of activism and Gregg Bordowitz's desire to explore aspects of his own life resulted in the appropriation of Nicolai Erdman's avant-garde play The Suicide.

—The Proposal ( June 14-19 ): A conceptual artist and an art historian battle over the archive of Mexican architect Luis Barragan in this documentary.

—Diamantino ( June 14-20 ): Beefcake soccer star Diamantino finds himself at the center of a wild government cloning plot in this hallucinatory Cannes prize-winning comedy.

—Loving Vincent ( June 14-15, 18 ): The film is a dramatization of Vincent Van Gogh's life. It will be followed by Loving Vincent: The Impossible Dream, the story of how Loving Vincent was made.

—Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin ( June 15, 19 ): Filmmaker Arwen Curry engages the feisty but camera-shy science-fiction author in a series of revealing interviews that explore her artistic and political evolution.

—Pasolini ( June 21-27 ): It's the Chicago premiere of director Abel Ferrara's film that re-creates the final 24 hours in the life of Italian filmmaker and political activist Pier Paolo Pasolini ( played by Willem Dafoe ).

—Salo, Or The 120 Days of Sodom ( June 21-22, 26 ): Four of Italy's fascist elite select innocent young men and women to become their sex slaves in Pier Paolo Pasolini's controversial final film. Note: This film contains potentially disturbing subject matter and explicit sex and violence.

—A Bigger Splash ( June 29; July 1, 3 ): Blending documentary and fiction, director Jack Hazan features artist David Hockney as himself, an in-demand, gay artist struggling with a creative block after a breakup.

Also, artist/activist/professor Gregg Bordowitz is also the subject of the Art Institute of Chicago exhibition "Gregg Bordowitz: I Wanna Be Well," with runs through July 14.

Tickets to each screening—unless stated otherwise—are $12/general admission; $7/students; $6/Film Center members; and $5/Art Institute of Chicago staff and School of the Art Institute of Chicago faculty, staff and students. See SiskelFilmCenter.org .
