WHAT: Into Film is proud to present an educational screening of Rent as part of our LGBT History Month programme showcasing LGBTQ+ cinema. The screening will be preceded by a short talk by Eyes Wide Open Cinema programmer and academic researcher Khaliden Na, who will talk about the lasting legacy of Rent and why we're still talking about it 25 years after Seasons of Love was first sung on stage. From the musical to the adaptation, the importance of these characters' stories - and thinking about how they're being told.
WHEN: Monday 4 March, 12.40pm - 3.25pm (the film will start promptly at 1pm)
WHERE: Fabrica, 40 Duke Street, Brighton, BN1 1AG. City centre venue with no dedicated parking. Church/gallery venue with pop-up cinema

Rent was a hit Broadway musical for years before this larger-than-life adaptation was made for the big screen. Based on the classic opera La Boheme, Rent relocates Puccini's tale of struggling artists from 19th-century Paris to 1980s New York. The young inhabitants of the arty, run-down East Village face drug addiction, HIV and tricky love lives. On top of all that, they have to pay their bills somehow. Singing and dancing seems to help them through their troubles, though.
This film has drugs references, a couple of uses of strong bad language, and scenes of moderate sexual behaviour.
