DARBY AND THE DEAD, directed by SILAS HOWARD, is an LGBTQ+ historic landmark as one of the first (and likely the first) studio-made films directed by an out trans masculine LGBTQ+ filmmaker. It is about to be screened in the new LTBTQIA+ film series QUEER RHAPSODY taking place in multiple city-wide venues in Los Angeles July 19 – 28, 2024. Important for its inclusivity both in front of and behind the camera,

DARBY is a sly LGBTQ+ allegory of outsiders struggling to fit in, and finding unlikely friendships amid the universal challenges of joys of finding belonging. After the (temporary?) demise of OUTFEST, Queer Rhapsody was motivated by a need to ‘create art spaces for communal engagement for queer identities under fire’,” said series organizer May Hong HaDuong, director of the UCLA Film and Television Archive. Silas talked abut this and his most impressive resume of queer movies and TV series with QUEERGURU ….. even touching on his latest work, directing some episodes for a brand new queer TV series for Netflix
