"Golden Threads"
1999-07-22 until 1999-10-17
New Museum of Contemporary Art
New York, NY, USA United States of America

This groundbreaking film combines animation (much of it hand done) with documentary film making on the subject of aging and the contemplation of aging.Golden Threads is appearing in The Time of Our Lives exhibit on aging at The New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York City, organized by Marcia Tucker with Anne Ellegood.

Golden Threads presents an in-depth and loving portrait of Christine Burton, an inspirational 93-year-old lesbian and gay rights activist who, at 80, founded Golden Threads, a networking service for lesbians in their middle years and older. The organization has now grown to over 1600 people worldwide and is a testament to one woman_s determination to overcome age and gender discrimination. Footage of Christine Burton is interwoven with the story of Winers own journey, resulting in a compelling portrayal of both women.

The films are screening continuously as part of the exhibition, and also on thursday nights in order to give visitors a specific time to watch them in their entirety and to hear from the filmmakers. The thursday night screenings are free and open to the public. _. . . a brilliantly affecting and stylish film by Lucy Winer and Karen Eaton. . .turning seismic events into glorious cinema, the last 20 minutes of _Golden Threads_ are so full of furiously angry energy - that one needs to experience them for oneself._ - Mark J.
