CHLOTRUDIS SOCIETY partners with Boston LGBT Fest to present THE GREEN as part of CELEBRATING WORLD CINEMA
The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film (CSIF) is pleased to partner with the Boston LGBT Film Festival in co-presenting THE GREEN, part of the CELEBRATING WORLD CINEMA series sponsored by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The film screens on Friday September 23rd at 7:30, in the Alfond Auditorium at the MFA. As an added bonus, the film’s screenwriters Paul Marcarelli and Molly Pearson will be in attendance and a Q&A will follow the screening.
Having left behind a life in New York City for the village charm of shoreline Connecticut, Michael (Jason Butler Harner), a high school drama teacher, thinks he can live a simple, harmonious domestic existence with his partner Daniel (Cheyenne Jackson). But Michael’s world is turned upside-down when he is accused of engaging in “inappropriate behavior” with a male student, who runs away from home and leaves behind his financially-strapped mother and her mercenary boyfriend to capitalize on the school’s culpability in the alleged affair. With his job, relationship, and freedom in jeopardy, Michael must confront the suspicions of his co-workers, the latent homophobia of his friends and neighbors, and Daniel’s doubts about his partner’s innocence after the investigation reveals a secret from his past.
