I ALWAYS SAID YES: THE MANY LIVES OF WAKEFIELD POOLE
Thursday @ 7:00 pm
Director: Jim Tushinski
Runtime: 93 minutes
An outspoken and articulate artist in a turbulent, passionate time, Wakefield Poole didn’t think of himself as a pornographer. He was a filmmaker who used his dance and theater background to create beautiful, erotic art films that challenged the mind. Many agreed. To others, though, Poole just made dirty movies. I Always Said Yes: The Many Lives of Wakefield Poole tells the story of this sometimes overlooked gay liberation and independent film making pioneer. Courtesy of Filmmaker
