David France & Victoria Cruz talk about The Death & Life of Marsha P. Johnson

Following his first highly successful documentary ‘How To Survive A Plague’ which deservedly won him an Oscar Nomination, filmmaker David France has now turned his attention to the mystery surrounding the death of legendary NY drag queen and activist Marsha P. Johnson for his sophomore movie.  With the help of Victoria Cruz who was about to retire from the NY Anti-Violence Project, they try to get to the truth of what really happened to this stalwart of the Gay Liberation movement who was a central figure in the Stonewall riots.

The interview for ‘queerguru reports’ on PTV’s Channel 99 as part of their coverage of #PIFF2017 was filmed at The Lands End Inn by Heather Reed and Hussein Wentz, and was edited by Roger Walker-Dack.
