Cock N’ Bull

Only 7 days left to explore, “What cures heartbreak?” with Nathan AdloffNathanAdloff

Nathan Adloff (Director/Co-Writer), perhaps best known for his feature film debut with “Nate & Margaret”, will be screening his latest film, “Cock N’ Bull” on Pride of the Ocean’s  45th anniversary of Stonewall cruise  June 1-8, 2014.

Roger Ebert commended “Nate and Margaret” as, “A smart, observant movie about two very particular people, and its casting is pitch-perfect.” The New York Times called the film “Fragile and simple in the best possible way.”

A Festival That Looks To The Future

Have a discussion with filmmakers before they premiere their films.

We are so pleased to see that one of our works-in-progress films, REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG, that was in the workshop program on our last Pride of the Ocean cruise in Alaska, will be having its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival next month. Five months ago, our Pride of the Ocean guests watched a sneak peek of the work-in-progress and talked with director Nancy Kates about her film and her creative process.

Did you know that many of the film premieres hitting the headlines were works in progress that screened on Pride of the Ocean? Below are some notable examples.

Get sneak peeks of upcoming films in different stages of development on our next Pride of the Ocean cruise from New York to Bermuda June 1-8, 2014.

Check out the films and filmmakers already scheduled to be on board at our films page and reserve your space with a small deposit to see the future of LGBT filmmaking before everyone else.

“Kill Your Darlings” Writer to Screen Documentary on Pride of the Ocean

Austin Bunn, who co-wrote the script for the Daniel Radcliffe film about a murder in 1944 that draws together the great poets of the beat generation: Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs, will be joined by his cinematographer, editor, and partner, Bob Hazen, where they will be screening their latest documentary, “Lavender Hill: A Love Story” on Pride of the Ocean’s New York to Bermuda Pride Cruise June 1-8, 2014.

In 1973, a motley group of young writers, artists, political activists, and recent college graduates purchased over 80 acres of land outside West Danby, New York to build, with their own hands, a two story home that became Lavender Hill

Funded, in part, by the Cornell Council for the Arts, “Lavender Hill: A Love Story” uses rare archival 8mm film and interviews with former commune members and gay and lesbian activists and historians to tell the story of the origins and history of one of the few gay and lesbian communes.

“Austin and Bob’s film is perfect for our theme about the 45th anniversary of Stonewall. Gay communes were an important part of our later advancements for LGBT rights. Even I got my feet wet living at the Unicorn News Gay Commune in DC during the early 70’s, along with Dancing Bear, Andy Kupcake, Ellen Strawberry and Michael Bumblebee.”, said John Scagliotti, Pride of the Ocean’s Program Director.

 

Austin graduated from Yale and The Iowa Writers’ Workshop and is now an assistant professor in Cornell University’s department of Performing and Media Arts.
