Kevin McLellan’s experimental short video, DICK, will show virtually at the Vancouver Queer Film Festival before the documentary, CURED which “chronicles a group of dedicated activists who went to battle with one of the most formidable gatekeepers to queer health, safety and freedom: the American Psychiatric Association” directed by Patrick Sammon and Bennett Singer from August 12-August 22.

DICK will also show at the Academy Award Qualifying, BAFTA Qualifying, and Canadian Screen Award Qualifying Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival, taking place between August 9th and August 15th. It also showed at the Berlin Short Film Festival last month.

DICK is a homoerotic short that mashes-up public domain sources (three 1940’s educational films starring Dick York, a 1940’s anti-gay propaganda film, and music from different times) in order to survey representations of gayness from different lenses and eras.
