USC’s ONE, the National Gay & Lesbian Archives, is the world’s largest archive of LGBTQ material and the oldest surviving LGBTQ organization in North America.
As the first of several public events associated with ONE’s acquisition of much of EZTV’s early archives, New York’s Anthology Film Archives screened an evening of EZTV early work. In some cases, this was the first public screening of some of these works in almost 30 years.
The screening of both a number of short pieces as well as the feature-length “Blonde Death” took place on November 20, 2013. The works have been selected by ONE’s curator, David Frantz, in collaboration with Bradford Nordeen of Dirty Looks NYC.
This was ONE’s very first event in New York City.
The program included:
