Roy Cohn/Jack Smith

Notes

An intense cinematic translation of a theatre piece in which actor Ron Vawter interprets the dual roles of Roy Cohn–the racist, reactionary prosecutor of the Joe McCarthy era and beyond who battled civil rights for homosexuals though he was homosexual himself–and Jack Smith, the open, avant-garde filmmaker/performance artist of Flaming Creatures.
