JUNE 23 & 28-FILMS & DISCUSSION - two related films, "LIVES-VISIBLE" and "LEFTOVERS" -by Chicago-based filmmaker and scholar Citron at Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St., in Chicago.
TIMES: two screenings: June 23 at 8 PM and June 28 at 8:15 PM. Citron will be present for audience discussion at both screenings.
TICKETS: $11 general admission; $7 student w/current I.D.; $6 Film Center members.
Citron's 1984 meta-documentary "Daughter Rite" is a classic of feminist cinema. Citron centers her latest film, "LIVES-VISIBLE," on a box of over 2,000 snapshots that had belonged to Norma and Virginia, a lesbian couple who lived together for nearly 50 years in East Rogers Park. These artifacts provide a fascinating window into the Chicago lesbian community of the pre-Stonewall era--a vanished world of bars, dances, parties and beach outings which was hidden from mainstream society and later disdained by many post-Stonewall lesbians, but which Citron, in her first-person narration, seeks to decode and reclaim as a vital, neglected part of her own history and the history of lesbians.
 Citron's other (related) film, "LEFTOVERS", is a 23 minute film described by Citron as an experimental documentary, which uses a paint-by-numbers motif to recount the last years of Norma And Virginia, nearly isolated save for a neighbor who cared for them and, after their deaths, discovered the photographs that inspired these two films. Both in DCP digital.  www.siskelfilmcenter.org  312-846-2600.

JUNE 30-July 6 - FILM -"MAURICE"  1987 movie by James Ivory and Ismail Merchant starring Hugh Grant and James Wilby, with new 4K restoration at Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St., in Chicago.
TIMES:: 6/30 at 2 PM; 7/1 at 5 PM; 7/2 at 3 PM; 7/3 at 7:30 PM; 7/6 at 7:45 PM.
TICKETS: $11 general admission; $7 students w/ current  I.D.; $6 Film Center members.
In the 1980s, the producer-director team of Ismail Merchant and James Ivory achieved renown for their acclaimed series of intelligent, elegant literary adaptations, three of them based on E.M Forster works. Coming between "A ROOM WITH A VIEW" and "HOWARDS END," "MAURICE" is based on a 1914 E.M Forster novel that went unpublished until 1971 because of its explicitly homosexual theme. Set in pre-World War I Britain, the story centers on the relationship between Cambridge students Maurice (James Wilby) and Clive(Hugh Grant), whose platonic love affair is later broken off by Clive for fear of severe social and legal consequences--consequences that are risked by Maurice when he is wooed by a passionate servant lad (Rupert Graves). The film is enlivened by a sharp sense of satire (conveyed by superb supporting players Simon Callow, Denholm Elliot, and Ben Kingsley) aimed at the prudery and conformity of British society. It is one of the rare films of its era to portray homosexuals who are not doomed, sinister or pathetic. This is a new 4K restoration.  www.siskelfilmcenter.org  312-846-2600.
