Armistead & director Jennifer Kroot & others in person. Laura Linney via Skype!
THE UNTOLD TALES OF ARMISTEAD MAUPIN examines the life and work of one of the worldâ€™s most beloved storytellers, following his evolution from a conservative son of the Old South into a gay rights pioneer whose novels have inspired millions to claim their own truth. Jennifer Krootâ€™s documentary about the creator of TALES OF THE CITY moves nimbly between playful and poignant and laugh-out-loud funny. With help from his friends (including Neil Gaiman, Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis, Sir Ian McKellen and Amy Tan) Maupin offers a disarmingly frank look at the journey that took him from the jungles of Vietnam to the bathhouses of 70â€™s San Francisco to the front line of the American culture war.
Written & Directed by Jennifer M. Kroot. USA. 2017. DCP. 91 mins.
