It’s Showtime: Inside the Actors Studio is Back!

Inside the Actors Studio is about to kick off its season of tapings on the NYC Campus! On October 26, you have a chance to be hanging with Mr….>>Read More…

Cooper! Bradley, that is. You may know him from The Hangover, Wedding Crashers, or even He’s Just Not That Into You (don’t feel bad, it happened to the best of us), but you can thank Actors Studio dean James Lipton who schooled him years ago…really. 

In just a few weeks, Bradley Cooper will return to Inside the Actors Studio, and this time he won’t be asking questions as part of his master’s class. He’ll be sitting in the hotseat next to Lipton answering questions from his blue notecards, along with the famous ten Pivot questions. So if you want to hear Bradley Cooper tell you his favorite curse word (hint: it’s not *******) then head over to the Schimmel Theater on October 26 with your Pace ID to get your two tickets, space permitting, to the taping.

The next taping will be on November 10. Oh, you want to know who the guest will be? Well, we’re going to tell you….at a later time. For now, we’re going to Milk the attention for all it’s worth. The person in question is a male. One of his films grossed almost $900 million worldwide; he finished his degree at UCLA with a 62-credit quarter, and his name rhymes with “games panko.” Fine, you win. It’s JAMES FRANCO.

A Night of Struggles, Pride, and Film

Celebrate Latin@ Heritage and National Coming Out Month at a one-day film screening of independent filmmakers focusing on the experiences of being LGBT and Latin@ on October 18 in NYC. >>Read More…

Join the Office of Multicultural Affairs and Unid@s at Nuestra Lucha, Nuestro Orgullo, y Nuestra Voces—Our Struggles, Our Pride, and Our Voices, an evening of six films from talented filmmakers, beginning at 6:30 p.m. on October 18 in NYC.

The lineup is as follows:

Homenaje a Jorge Steven Lopez Mercado
Jorge Steven López Mercado, a 19 year-old college student, was discovered dead on November 14, 2009 in Cayey, a city located in Puerto Rico’s interior region. López was widely known as a volunteer for organizations advocating for HIV prevention and gay rights. His murderer pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 99 years in prison for his murder.

*Si nos Dejan
Todo por Placer
Two short pieces by Alejandro Murillo portraying aspects of gay life in Mexico. Watch and listen as music plays an important role in the development of the characters and the energy throughout these comedic films.

*Reina de Mi Misma
A documentary exploring the feminist work of Krudas Cubensi, also known as Las Krudas, an all-woman creative trio from Cuba. It focuses on the impact the trio has had in the Afro-centric and underground hip-hop spheres in La Habana and the United States.

*T con T
“What would a Cuban version of The L-Word look like?” This question prompted the formation of the T con T Collective and initiated the subsequent documentary-style video, which reflects the lived experience of a group of lesbians in Havana, Cuba.

*En el Fuego
Transphobia is an everyday problem around the world and in a religious and conservative city like Lima, Peru where transgender citizens are not protected by any specific laws, it can be downright dangerous. Despite the danger of living openly, these Peruvians prosper and persevere. They earn degrees, work with children, and stand up for themselves, affecting a change in the status quo for their LGBT community.

A real-life story portraying Pichie and his mother as they learn and grow together through the lens of Pichie’s stolen and corrupted childhood. Watch him dress up, put make up on, and address more than just childhood self-discovery issues.
