PORTRAIT OF JASON

Shirley Clarke | USA | 1967 | 105mins

Shirley Clarke’s fourth feature, Portrait of Jason (1967), is a pure documentary without adornment. Portrait was created from a single, 12-hour-long interview with Jason Holliday, a gay African American hustler and aspiring nightclub performer. Holliday’s stories of racism, homophobia, parental abuse, drugs, sex and prostitution would have been shocking if not for his candor, humor and acerbic charm. The film was a revelation and remains one of the most respected LGBT films.
