Cinema Diverse: The Palm Springs Gay and Lesbian Film Festival To Screen New Anti-Bullying Documentary
TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL.
Cinema Diverse: The Palm Springs Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, is pleased to announce that it will screen Gary Takesian’s new documentary, TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL. The screening, which was made possible by actress and activist Katharine “Kat” Kramer, the daughter of legendary producer/director, Stanley Kramer, will include a special video introduction by Ms. Kramer and actress Lily Tomlin, who also narrates the film. The screening will take place at 11:30am on Sunday, September 22nd, at Camelot Theatres.
TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL is designed to advance the conversation about how we as a society must respond to homophobia, bullying and violence, leading to a greater acceptance of, and respect for, those who identify as LGBT. The film presents the issues surrounding homophobia in a multi-segment format that engenders group discussion. The topics unfold through one-on-one interviews with students, teachers, parents and leaders in the LGBT support and ally communities.
“Few contemporary social issues generate as much passion, misunderstanding and resistance as homosexuality,” says filmmaker, Gary Takesian. “Deeply held homophobic beliefs, passed on from one generation to the next, pose ongoing challenges to the peaceful coexistence of today's young people. This is especially problematic in our schools when it comes to the treatment of LGBT students by their straight-identifying peers, and by the adults who teach, counsel and supervise them.”
Cinema Diverse is presented by The Palm Springs Cultural Center, a local nonprofit which serves as an incubator for local cultural arts programs and events. The annual celebration of LGBT films and filmmakers runs for four days at the Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs. Individual tickets are $13 each, and can be purchased in person at Camelot Theatres, or online at our website, http://www.cinemadiverse.org, or at http://www.camelottickets.com/.
