Outfest, one of the world’s largest gay and lesbian film festivals, will present Fusion, the only multicultural gender-inclusive LGBT People of Color Film Festival for the third consecutive year. To be held in Los Angeles November 11-13, 2005, Fusion is a celebration of extraordinary films, music, spoken-word, workshops and panels. Every program of Fusion is comprised of films and videos that represent a variety of racial and ethnic communities, as well as a range of gender identities.
This three-day, 14 program festival consists of documentary, narrative and short films and videos, including the new Margaret Cho narrative film “Bam Bam and Celeste,” the Closing Night Gala. Cho wrote and co-stars in the film with Bruce Daniel along with a supporting cast including Jane Lynch, Alan C*****g, John Cho, Wilson Cruz, Kathy Najimy and Elaine Hendrix. Other highlights include William E. Jones’s “Is It Really So Strange?,” a documentary about Southland Latino Morrissey fans (followed by a performance by the Morrissey/The Smiths cover band The Sweet and Tender Hooligans), and “The Aggressives,” an award-winning documentary about New York’s underground lesbian Drag Balls.
