UCLA Film & Television Archive and Outfest, present “The Legacy Project Screening Series”

In December, the Legacy Project Screening Series celebrates the release of  War Diaries,  a collection of poems, short stories and personal essays reflecting on the experiences of black queer men internationally in the era of AIDS.

War Diaries is published by AIDS Project Los Angeles and the Global Forum on MSM and HIV (MSMGF).

To celebrate the publishing of  War Diaries, the Legacy Project will be screening Stephen Winter’s rabble rousing film Chocolate Babies.

Admission to the screening  ($10)  also gets you a free copy of War Dairies.

“Chocolate Babies” (1997)
Directed by Stephen Winter

When a band of HIV-positive African American drag queens have had enough of patronizing activists and politicians, they launch an underground terror campaign to fight for justice. Writer-director Stephen Winter’s scathingly funny and tender feature debut hits like a hand grenade, demolishing independent film conventions as thoroughly as the political marginalization and complacency that are its main targets.
