Film Explores Man and Myth Behind Movie Legend, Gay Icon James Dean

The Fort Lauderdale Gay and Lesbian Film Festival wraps up its monthly “954 GLOW” (Gays & Lesbians on Wednesdays) series on Wednesday, September 12 at 8:45 p.m. with Matthew Mishory’s “Joshua Tree, 1951: A Portrait of James Dean.”

Described as “part portrait, part love story, part road trip expose,” the biopic projects an intimate, untold portrayal of James Dean and his closest companions, illustrated with dream-like sequences that jump back and forth through time and attempt to separate the pop culture mythology that has surrounded the actor since his untimely death. Tickets are $9 members/$11 non-members in advance at and $11/$13 at the box office. For more information, go to or call 305-751-6305.
