Hide and Seek is a daring exploration into wild, uncharted territory – lesbian adolescence in the 1960s. Lou is a 12 year old girl who daydreams in a tree house, tries not to watch a sex education film, wins a rock throwing contest, and is horrified to discover that her best friend is taking an interest in earrings and boys. Interwoven with Lou's story are the mostly hilarious, sometimes painful recollections of adult lesbians who try to figure out how they ever got from there to here. Completing the picture are clips from a wide array of old scientific and educational films which blend seamlessly with the beautiful black and white images of Lou's world. Hide and Seek is for every woman who's been to a slumber party and every man who wonders what went on at one. Director Su Friedrich will be in attendance. This screening is part of Lightbox Film Center’s new series, Queering the Lens, a selection of groundbreaking nonfiction films that re-imagine or “queer” the form of documentary.
