MA: Boston Gay Film Festival Starts May 5th

Published Date Author: , May 3rd, 2011

Launched in 1984 when programmers had to search far and wide for “gay films,” the annual Boston LGBT Film Festival now has the daunting task of reflecting nearly three decades of social change back to a multigenerational audience. This year’s festival, running Thursday through May 14, does it by offering a no-stone-unturned portrait of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender life in all its shadings from around the globe.

Opening the festival and capturing its international slant is the New England premiere of German director Tom Tykwer’s “Three” (May 5 at the Museum of Fine Arts), a romantic triangle set in contemporary Berlin.

A longtime couple (Sophie Rois and Sebastian Schipper) invites trouble when they both fall, unbeknownst to each other, for a handsome, charismatic researcher (Devid Striesow). Tykwer’s thoughtful and complex drama even has a touch of farce as the three conduct their affairs in secret, with each character wrestling with questions about fate, biology, lust, love, and family.
