Please join us for a candid and intimate conversation between film scholar B. Ruby Rich and Isaac Julien on the occasion of his solo exhibition “Vintage.” No strangers to discussions of “Queer Cinema” (a term coined by Rich), these longtime friends will explore the three series featured in this photographic exhibition – Looking for Langston (1989), Trussed (1996) and The Long Road to Mazatlan (1999-2000).
B. Ruby Rich is a Professor of Film and Digital Media at UC Santa Cruz. She is also Editor of Film Quarterly (UC Press), the oldest film journal in the U.S. She is the author of New Queer Cinema: The Director’s Cut (2013) and Chick Flicks: Theories and Memories of the Feminist Film Movement (1998). With a long history in film festivals, she continues to participate in panels and juries at major film festivals including Sundance, Toronto, and Provincetown. She continues to write widely in both the scholarly and academic press, contribute to international conferences, and provide film commentary for public radio, television, and online.
