This Is Where I Get Off

New York Premiere!

A tribute to Charles Lum’s life told through his work as a filmmaker. Featuring Super-8 films Charlie shot as a teenager in the 1970s up to the last film he made about his battle with AIDS-related lymphoma. A CineKink Spotlight Artist and long-time alumni, Charlie AKA Clublum was a much-loved and valued member of the queer and film communities, whose films defied the taboos and stigmas of sex, sex in public places and sex with HIV.
