ABOUT THE FILM
Reel In The Closet is a feature-length documentary (25 minute educational version available) that reveals the real lives of LGBTQ people from the past through hundreds of never before seen home movies dating back to the 1930s.
But many such films are being destroyed- sometimes on purpose.
– “No film here moves me as much as Stu Maddux’s Reel in the Closet” -The Village Voice at DOC NYC
