Upstate New York's Jacob Burns Film Center unveiled 18 screenings as part of its "Out at the Movies" series spotlighting gay film. Opening the event, taking place May 20 - June 2, is Gwen Wynne's "American Primitive." Set in 1973, the story centers on widower Harry (Tate Donovan) who moves with his teen daughters to Cape Cod and sets up a furniture-making business with Theo (Adam Pascal). One of the daughters discovers the business partners are more than friends and this leads to turmoil. The screening will be followed by a Q&A.
