A section introducing films focused around certain queer issues particularly pertinent this year.

2019 is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, one of the biggest events in the history of LGBT community. The Stonewall riots is the first public struggle of sexual minorities against the suppression of the police force occurred at Stonewall, a gay bar in NYC, on June 28th, 1969. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall, the theme of 2019 Hot Pink Session is “struggle” to reflect its history in the community of sexual minorities. Accordingly, we selected 8 films regarding 4 memorable incidents and people in the history of LGBT struggles. We selected two films—a documentary films and fictional films—for each of the 4 incident/person. 

The movie “Stonewall (directed by Roland Emmerich) and the documentary film “Beyond Gay:The politics of Pride (directed by Bob Christie) were selected for the topic of the Stonewall riots, and “Milk (directed by Gus Van Sant) “PRIDE (directed by Matthew Warchus)” were chosen for the topic of Harvey Milk, a symbolic figure in the history of sexual minorities. 

Both “Laurel (directed by Peter Sollett)” and “Limited Partnership (directed by Thomas G. Miller)” talk about real people who fought against institutional prohibition against the sexual minorities, and “120 BPM (directed by Robin Campillo)” and “We Were Here (directed by David Weissman, Bill Weber) deals with the topic of AIDS.
