Reeling: The Mattachine Family
Starring Nico Tortorella (YOUNGER; THE WALKING DEAD: WORLD BEYOND) and Juan Pablo Di Pace (FULLER HOUSE, MAMMA MIA!) as the very much in love Thomas and Oscar, and toting a supporting cast featuring Emily Hampshire (SCHITTâ??S CREEK) and Carl Clemons-Hopkins (HACKS), THE MATTACHINE FAMILY is a story about family, both made and found. When their foster child reunites with his birth mother, husbands Thomas and Oscar deal with the loss in very different ways. Oscarâ??s acting career finally picks up, taking him out of state for filming for months at a time. Meanwhile, Thomas finds himself at home alone, dealing with his new world full of change and loss. Having never considered a life as a husband and father available to him, Thomas begins a journey of self-discovery, trying to figure out what he wants from life and what it means to be gay in 2021. Told through a web of connected moments in time, Thomas and Oscar navigate their differing world views, while growing and changing, both as individuals and as a couple. Loosely based on director Andy Vallentine and writer Danny Vallentineâ??s own lived experiences as husbands and potential fathers, THE MATTACHINE FAMILY tells a story about the universality of love, family, and community. THE MATTACHINE FAMILY was produced by Zach Braff (GARDEN STATE), Scot Boland (THE HOBBIT), and Mike Diaz.

Reception starts at 6:00 PM, with the screening following at 7:00 PM. Sponsored
