Peter Adair's groundbreaking piece of cinema is now widely recognized as a cultural touchstone, and the film a homespun, heartfelt and quietly revolutionary collection of interviews with gay men and women from all walks of life recently celebrated a lavish thirtieth-anniversary restoration that's a far cry from worn VHS.
"I'm happy to bring this new restoration of Word Is Out to [Starz] FilmCenter," says Garcia, "if only to remind the gay youth of today that there have been people living their lives for years, and we should always acknowledge that history."
Word Is Out opens today (with shows at 4:45 and 7:30 p.m.) at Starz, in the Tivoli building on the Auraria campus. The film runs through December 24; admission is $6 to $7.50. For tickets and info, call 303-595-3456 or visit www.denverfilm.org.
