Gan Meir - King George Street, Tel Aviv,
Amos Gutman (1954-1993), the first proud filmmaker out of the closet, has directed three short films and four full-length feature films considered an asset to Iron Sheep in Israeli film history. In the late 1980s, Gutman was the first Israeli filmmaker to feature his queer life in Tel Aviv.
On Thursday, the 29.8 will hold a festive outdoor screening at the Meir Garden. Proud wives and filmmakers, together created a filmic monument to a unique filmmaker who created breakthrough LGBT films at a time when the community was far from the heart of social consensus.
