Ways In Being Gay : Ways In/Between Gender

Su Friedrich

Hide and Seek

A 16mm screening of Su Friedrich's award winning film that tells the story of Lou, a 12 year old girl coming to terms with her budding sexuality in the mid 60's. The experimental narrative interweaves found footage as interviews with adult lesbians as they recount their own adolescents. Several of Friedrich's films have screened at Hallwalls over the years. Gently Down The Stream was shown in 1985 as part of the Gay and Lesbian Film Series; in 1988 she presented The Ties That Bind and Damned If You Don't; Sink Or Swim was exhibited at the second Ways In Being Gay, 1990; Rules Of The Road was part of Skin Flicks in 1993.

Su Friedrich teaches film & video production at Princeton University. She has been making 16mm films and videos since 1978 and has produced and directed eighteen titles. Her works, which are screened and distributed widely throughout the US, Canada and Europe, have received numerous awards. Friedrich has received fellowships from the Rockefeller and Guggenheim Foundations as well as numerous grants from the Jerome Foundation, NYFA, NYSCA and ITVS, and in 1995 she received the Cal Arts/Alpert Award. Retrospectives of her work have been held at the Museum of Modern Art in NY, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Rotterdam International Film Festival, The Stadtkino in Vienna, the Pacific Cinematheque in Vancouver and the National Film Theater in London, among others. Friedrich is the writer, cinematographer, director and editor of all her films, with the exception of Hide and Seek, which was co-written by Cathy Quinlan and shot by Jim Denault (Boys Don't Cry, Real Women Have Curves, Maria Full Of Grace).
