O Cinema Wynwood Sun, Nov 19, 2017 11:00 AM


For our newest film series, we’re partnering the best in contemporary LGBTQ cinema from around the world with everyone’s favorite weekend pastime…brunch. We’re calling this new event Queer Brunch and we’re hoping you join us for a fun afternoon of delicious food and compelling films in a safe and festive space for our LGBTQ community and their allies.


Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes and France’s official submission for the Academy Award’s, BPM (Beats Per Minute) is a harrowing yet inspiring look back at the activism of French ACT UP protesters.


In Paris during the height of the AIDS crisis in the early 1990s taking on sluggish government agencies and major pharmaceutical companies in bold, invasive actions. With the disease having claimed countless lives, the Parisian branch of ACT UP begins to multiply their actions to fight the public’s general indifference to this massive health crisis with a literal life-or-death urgency.


Amid rallies, protests, fierce debates and ecstatic dance parties, Nathan (Arnaud Valois), a newcomer to the group, soon has his world shaken up by the radical militant Sean (Nahuel Perez Biscayart) their passion sparks against the shadow of mortality as the activists fight for a breakthrough.


We’re serving a delicious light brunch of French fare from our friends at Cafe Creme. Your meal will include…
• a slice of quiche
• a small green salad
• a petite croissant
• a mini fruit tart


No brunch would be complete without a refreshing Mimosa, and neither is this one. You’ll wash down your meal with that classic combo of OJ and bubbly.


This event is made possible by the generous support of the Miami Foundation’s LGBT Fund.
