Out In The Silence
(Director Joe Wilson and Dean Hamer USA, 2009 57 min)
Out in the Silence captures the remarkable chain of events that unfold when the announcement of filmmaker Joe Wilson’s wedding to another man ignites a firestorm of controversy in his small Pennsylvania hometown. Drawn back by a plea for help from the mother of a gay teen being tormented at school, Wilson’s journey dramatically illustrates the universal challenges of being an outsider in a conservative environment and the transformation that is possible when those who have long been constrained by a traditional code of silence summon the courage to break it. Out in the Silence will challenge you to rethink your values and help close the gaps that divide our communities.

Human Rights Campaign Pre Baby Formula Cocktail Hour
in the Cinema’s Sky Room, free with admission to Baby Formula


Saturday, November 14 at 7:30 PM

The Baby Formula (Alison Reid, Canada, 2008 100min) Athena and Lilith are two women in love who are about to make history by having the first baby born to two biological mothers and no father. The couple wants a biological child of their own so badly that they use an experimental scientific process to make “female sperm” from Lilith’s stem cells. The process was developed as a fertility treatment in a lab where Athena works. It has been successful in mice, but has never been tried in humans. When the process works and Athena becomes pregnant with Lilith’s baby, the two are thrilled. However, some rules were broken, and they must keep what they’ve done a secret.
Tension builds when Lilith becomes jealous and uses the same method to get pregnant behind Athena’s back. Adding to the turmoil is Athena’s brother, Larry who claims to be the father of Lilith’s baby. To prove him wrong, the couple is forced to divulge the truth of their experimental conceptions to their families. Pregnant with humor and unexpected twists, the family meeting results in a collision of differing views. Athena’s religious right-wing mother, Wanda wavers between total denial and going through the roof. Her father Karl seems dumbfounded. Grandma Kate accepts the news with quips of humor, wisdom and love. Lilith’s gay alcoholic parents, Daniel and Edward, are ready to be granddads but have their own troubles to face. While everyone sits back to digest the surprising news of the pregnant couple, Karl makes an announcement that sends the family meeting into a tailspin. The trauma that results brings life’s blessings into perspective and acts as a catalyst for change and growth. What begins as a story of advancements in science, The Baby Formula ultimately is a tale of love, acceptance and family. With When The Time Is Right (Linda Anderson, USA, 2008, 11:18) A time traveling alarm clock helps a woman to decide whether or not to move in with her girl friend.
