[IN PERSON] Film Screening and Discussion with the Producer James Egan: Wild about Harry
Wednesday, June 297:00—9:00 PMEdgartown Free Public LibraryEdgartown Free Public Library26 West Tisbury Road, Edgartown, MA, 02539
Set in 1973 and inspired by the true-life events of co-writer and director Gwen Wynne, Wild About Harry tells the story of the havoc that is wreaked in a teenage girl's life when she discovers her widowed father is gay.
Alternately funny and heartbreaking, the film captures the homophobia of the time set against a backdrop of small-town America on Cape Cod. The film utilizes emblematic music expressing the artistic and experimental freedom of the early 70s.
We will be joined by James Egan, producer of the film, and his husband Dan Perdios, author of A Golden Retriever and His Two Dads: An Adventure on Cape Cod, which chronicles working on the set of Wild About Harry.
This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Edgartown Free Public Library.
