We Came To Sweat: The Legend of Starlite
directed by Kate Kunath and Sasha Wortzel
Starlite, New York’s first black-owned gay bar, opened in Brooklyn in 1962 during the highly charged civil rights era. It became a safe haven for LGBT people living outside Manhattan, and in the ’70s, it played disco before anyplace else. But after nearly 50 years in business, the lounge received a 30-day eviction notice from the new building owners in the ever-more-pricey Crown Heights neighborhood. Will the community be able to fight back and preserve their pre-Stonewall culture and history, or will gentrification take over?
Plays with: GIVE HIM SOMETHING RED Greg Acceta; 2015; US; 5 min. A young, gay African-American man decides to change his life and create a new future beyond the porn industry.
