The Capote Tapes: A Reeling Film Fest Discussion

Thursday, October 8, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Members & guests–$12 ticket to stream; to pre-order and then view the documentary between October 3–6, click here. To RSVP for the group discussion via Zoom, please scroll down.

Join the LGBTA committee for a lively documentary discussion about Truman Capote in the film, The Capote Tapes.

In this tantalizing character study, director Ebs Burnough crafts a documentary collage of Truman Capote, famed writer of classic novels In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Burnough’s film is built around never-before-seen interviews, photographs, and home movies, creating an immersive portrait of the larger-than-life gay writer. Burnough is the former White House deputy social secretary and senior advisor to Michelle Obama in brand strategy and strategic communications. The Capote Tapes is his directorial debut.

Note: though this is a virtual viewing and discussion, due to limitations on the film’s license agreement, you must be in the state of Illinois to stream the film between October 3–6.
