Art Department 1960’s Scholars Event: Jason and Shirley

There will be a screening of the 2015 docudrama Jason and Shirley by Stephen Winter. His film critically reimagines the 12-hour-long making of the 1967 documentary Portrait of Jason, in which the black, gay hustler and cabaret artist Jason Holliday narrates his life stories of racism, homophobia, and prostitution to the director/producer Shirley Clarke.
The screening will take place on Tuesday, December 1 in Paresky Auditorium at 6 PM and will be followed by a Q&A with Stephen Winter, who is currently a visiting lecturer in studio art.
