If you want to understand what the past was like for the average person, watch their home movies and videos. Understand how they saw their struggles. Feel their happy times.
Reel In The Closet is a feature-length documentary (educational version is 25 min.) transporting us into LGBTQ 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.
The producers speak and present this documentary with organizations who sponsor screenings to raise awareness. The educational version is used in classrooms.
