If you want to live the past, watch the home movies and videos of the people who went through it. Understand how they saw their struggles. Feel their happy times. See it through their eyes.
Reel In The Closet is a feature-length documentary that transports us into LGBT life of the past through rare home movies of the people who lived it. Many of the moving images in this film are shown for the first time. Many more wait to be discovered in people’s closets but are being thrown out- sometimes on purpose.
Reel In The Closet is a “crowd work in progress”. The documentary keeps getting more compelling. More closets are opened each day around the world with home movies revealing more of the LGBT story. These new treasures are regularly added to the documentary and to this online community.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Reel In The Closet collaborates with those who show this film to save and share history. We facilitate finding good homes for these important home movies and helping new generations use them to document the stories of those who came before them.
