HIde and Seek by Su Friedrich

San Francisco Art Institute

Co-Sponsored by Frameline

Hide and Seek (1996, 63 min., produced in association with the Independent Television Service) is an exploration into wild, uncharted territory-lesbian adolescence in the 1960s. Lou is a 12 year old girl who daydreams in a tree house, tries not to watch a sex education film and is horrified to discover that her best friend is taking an interest in earrings and boys. Interwoven are mostly hilarious, sometimes melancholy recollections of adult lesbians and clips from a wide array of educational films. “Hide and Seek is for every woman who’s been to a slumber party and every man who wonders what went on at one.” (SF) It will be included in this year’s Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals.
