The Out of the Closet and Onto the Screen film series at Ithaca College will host events on back-to-back nights this month. The documentary “Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart” will be shown on Tuesday, Feb. 12, and the web series “After Forever” will be shown on Wednesday, Feb. 13. Both screenings will take place at 6 p.m. in Textor 103, and both are free and open to the public.

“Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart” is the first feature documentary about Lorraine Hansberry, the visionary playwright who authored “A Raisin in the Sun.” Artist, activist and public intellectual, Hansberry was outspoken and defiant against injustice, and the film shows how her works tackling race, human rights, women’s equality and sexuality anticipated social and political movements on the horizon. The screening is being held in observance of Black History Month.

“After Forever” is a short-form digital series that tells the story of a gay couple and their friends as they negotiate life, love, loss and new beginnings. The showing will include a discussion with co-creator, producer and writer Michael Slade, a 1974 Ithaca College alumnus. It is being presented in collaboration with the Ithaca College Gerontology Institute and Department of Theatre Arts.

The Out of the Closet and Onto the Screen series is sponsored by the Ithaca College Center for LGBT Education, Outreach, and Services. For more information, visit www.ithaca.edu/lgbt.
