OPENING NIGHT FILM

This film pays loving tribute to Terrence McNally, the four-time Tony-winning playwright and ardent fighter for LGBTQ rights at a time when that was not the norm. The son of an alcoholic beer distributor in southern Texas, Terrence traveled the world as tutor to John Steinbeck's children; suffered an infamous Broadway flop in 1965 at age 24; and went on to write dozens of groundbreaking plays and musicals about sexuality, homophobia, faith, the power of art, and finding meaning in every moment of life. At 80 he is currently working on three new plays.

Jeff Kaufman produced, directed, and wrote the documentaries The State of Marriage; Father Joseph; The Savoy King: Chick Webb and the Music That Changed America; Brush With Life: The Art of Being Edward Biberman; and Education Under Fire, plus programs for The Discovery Channel and The History Channel, and a half-dozen short films for Amnesty International. He also contributed cartoons to The New Yorker, and illustrations to The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times.
