Cost: Free
WUD Film presents a free screening of Pariah (2011) as a part of the LGBTQ+ Film Festival.

USA | 86 minutes | R | Blu-Ray | Dir. Dee Rees

Alike is a 17-year-old African-American girl who hangs out at clubs with her openly lesbian friend Laura. Alike slowly and firmly comes to terms with her own identity as a butch lesbian, comfortable in baggy clothes and male underwear. Her mother Audrey disapproves of both her clothes and Alike's friendship with Laura.

"This is a look at the joy, confusion and heartbreak of adolescence that's both culture- and locale-specific, and at the same time, universal," - Lou Lumenick New York Post

 

Assistive Screening Accommodations for Patrons with Disability

  • English Subtitles via disc menu available upon advance request
  • Assisted Listening Device Amplification available

These free screenings are intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff, and Union members and guests.
