because we found it: A Good Man opens at NYC’s Quad cinema
UPDATE: If you didn’t make it to the sneak preview of the award-winning film, A Good Man, last December, here’s your chance. The deeply moving and funny documentary is set for its commercial release at the Quad cinema in NYC starting today. Running from February 25th to March 3rd, each screening will be accompanied by a discussion between the director, South Asian filmmaker Safina Uberoi, and exciting moderators from the worlds of film, academia and social change, such as Sandi DuBowski (Director of Trembling Before G-d, Producer of A Jihad for Love), Aseem Chhaabra of SAJA, Faye Ginsburg, Co-Director of the NYU Council for the Study of Disability, Marcia L. Callaghan, the Director of Social & Cultural Programs at the American Australian Association, to name a few.
We know it’s hard to think of anything but the Oscars this weekend, but make some time for this documentary that tells the story of a remarkable man in a way that will challenge the way you think about love, sex, fidelity and disability.
How about: Fundraiser, sneak preview of award winning doc A GOOD MAN. Stick around for Q & A with director, Safina Uberoi
Here’s info: A Good Man tells the story of an Australian farmer Chris Rohrlach, his quadriplegic wife, their newborn baby, and Chris’s plans to open a brothel in a small country town.
