Women Make Movies @ BHS

Join BHS and the New York Chapter of COLAGE, a national movement of children, youth, and adults with one or more LGBTQ parents, as we celebrate Brooklyn PRIDE with a screening of films on same-sex marriage from Women Make Movies:

  • My Sister, My Bride directed by Bonnie Burt (26 min)

As the issue of gay marriage grips the country, this touching documentary follows the heartwarming and historic journey of two Jewish lesbians as they seek to celebrate their commitment to one another.

  • In Sickness and In Health directed by Pilar Prissas (56 min)

A battle to legalize same-sex marriage turns into a race against time and a fatal illness for Marilyn Maneely and Diane Marini in this poignant award-winning film that puts a real human face on the often abstract debate surrounding rights and equality for all Americans.

Leslie Gabel-Brett from Lambda Legal, whose work is featured in the film, will join us for discussion following the film.
