“Vito” will have its local premiere on Wednesday, March 7th as a fundraiser for Out On Film’s 25th anniversary year. In the aftermath of Stonewall, a newly politicized Vito Russo found his voice as a gay activist/critic of LGBT representation in the media. He went on to write the groundbreaking “The Celluloid Closet,” the first book to critique Hollywood’s portrayals of gays on screen. During the AIDS crisis in the 1980s, Vito became a passionate advocate for justice via the newly formed ACT UP. Director Jeffrey Schwarz tells us the story of a man who changed the gay landscape.
