Southern Poverty Law Center Virtual Screening
Southern Poverty Law Center is excited to invite you to a private virtual screening of the award-winning new documentary CURED, which highlights a pivotal but little-known moment in LGBTQ history when activists rose up to challenge a formidable institution — and won! The film will be available to screen online from July 23rd – August 1st. There will also be a live virtual Q&A about the film on Thursday, July 29th at 7 pm ET.
Described as “fascinating” (Hollywood Reporter), “riveting” (The Queer Review), and “one of the best documentaries of this or any year” (British Film Institute) — and the winner of Audience Favorite awards at NewFest and Frameline — CURED takes viewers inside the David-versus-Goliath battle that led the American Psychiatric Association to remove homosexuality from its manual of mental illnesses in 1973. The film spotlights a diverse group of activists who achieved this epic victory in the movement for LGBTQ equality. Watch the trailer for CURED.
AARP is proud to be a sponsor of CURED’s Outreach and Engagement campaign. This support has allowed the filmmakers to launch an ambitious campaign to amplify the reach and impact of this documentary in classrooms, communities, and educational institutions prior to its broadcast premiere on PBS in October.
We hope you’ll be able to join us to watch and discuss this inspiring new film!
