Event: Wildness


Wed May. 2, 2012
At 9:45 P.M


Wu Tsang / USA / English, Spanish

Rooted in the tropical underground of Los Angeles nightlife, WILDNESS is a portrait of the Silver Platter, a historic bar that has been home to Latin/LGBT immigrant communities since 1963. With a magical-realist flourish the bar itself becomes a character, narrating what happens when a weekly party called Wildness explodes into creativity and conflict. What does “safe space” mean? Who needs it? And how does it differ among us? At the Silver Platter, the search for answers creates coalitions across generations.
