Join us this Sunday, June 11th, at 6:15 pm ET for an unforgettable evening brought to you by The Well Project in partnership with THRIVE SS and The Reunion Project. We are thrilled to co-host the grand finale of Ribbon's National Film Festival: Celebrating Stories of Resilience.
Guiding us through this remarkable event will be our esteemed moderators: Bridgette Picou from The Well Project, Larry Bryant from The Reunion Project, and Malcolm Reid from Thrive SS. Together, we will present a special screening of the powerful film "Philadelphia" featuring the incredible performances of Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington.
Released in 1993, "Philadelphia" delves into the personal and professional challenges faced by an individual living with HIV. It courageously tackles the themes of discrimination and the relentless pursuit of justice. Remarkably, this groundbreaking film not only confronted the issues surrounding HIV/AIDS and homophobia, but also shed light on the positive representation of gay individuals in mainstream Hollywood.
Following the screening, we invite you to participate in a live Q&A and engaging discussion with our distinguished panelists, as we delve deeper into the thought-provoking themes explored in the film. This promises to be a momentous occasion that you won't want to miss.
