Celebrating Strand Releasing at 30

Totally F—ed Up (1993)
December 13, 2019 - 7:30 pm
In-person: 
Q&A with Marcus Hu, Jon Gerrans, Strand Releasing.

Founded 30 years ago in 1989, in a theatrical and home video environment largely alien to that of today, Strand Releasing has consistently shone as a leading distributor of foreign language, American independent, and documentary films in theaters, on home video formats, and within video-on-demand channels. Taking risks and embracing daring, sometimes outrageous filmmakers and works at which others might balk, Strand is a friend to outsiders, to iconoclasts, to queer artists, and to cinematic truth-tellers all. To celebrate their third decade, UCLA Film & Television Archive is proud to host the Los Angeles premiere of a new omnibus film, created for the occasion by and including brand-new contributions from over 40 Strand-supported filmmakers.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with Strand Releasing founders Marcus Hu and Jon Gerrans. Filmmaker appearances will be announced closer to the date of the screening.
