LIVING IN THE OVERLAP (October 11th, 7:00 PM @ Green Street UMC & OUT @ the Movies Fest ’14, November 14th – 16th!
LIVING IN THE OVERLAP
On Saturday, October 11th, in collaboration with Green Street United Methodist Church and Pride Winston-Salem, we will screen the 2013 documentary, LIVING IN OVERLAP, in the sanctuary of Green Street United Methodist Church, 639 S. Green Street in Winston-Salem.
LIVING IN THE OVERLAP, the inspiring story of Lennie Gerber and Pearl Berlin, was written by Mary Dalton and directed by Mary Dalton and Cindy Hill.
For over 40 years, Lennie and Pearl have shared a passion for social justice and for each other. Now, the indelible spark of their love inspires many others as they fight for their right to marry in North Carolina.
We are incredibly excited that Lennie and Pearl will join us for the screening and a Q & A! There is no admission. Donations will be accepted for Green Street UMC.

THE WAY HE LOOKS
Not every love happens at first sight.
Leonardo is a blind teenager dealing with an overprotective mother while trying to live a more independent life. To the disappointment of his best friend, Giovana, he plans to join a foreign exchange program. When Gabriel, a new student in town, arrives at their classroom, new feelings blossom in Leonardo making him question his plans.
This is a wonderful, not to be missed movie! I cried, I yelled, I laughed…All in one single movie. It’s a must-watch! The ending is classic and touching!
In Portuguese with English subtitles/running time of 95 minutes.
A LAST FAREWELL
A LAST FAREWELL is both a calm and upsetting portrait of an aging author’s sorrow over the death of his long time partner. Haunted by visions of his late husband, and in conflict with his daughter who is trying to renew the ties between them, he must tackle the nearly impossible task of moving on and finding peace in the wake of a devastating loss.
Written and directed by Casper Andreas (GOING DOWN IN LA-LA LAND) and produced by David Färdmar.
In Swedish with English subtitles/running time of 12 minutes.
