Director’s Guild Screening of “Woman’s Picture”

Last Monday, I attended a screening of a new film, Woman’s Picture, at the Director’s Guild of America in Hollywood as the guest of a cast member, DC-based actress/singer/model Gia Mora. Mora’s popular jazz cabaret “Laugh it Up, Funny Girl” is currently playing at Germano’s Trattoria in Baltimore’s Little Italy.

After seeing the trailer for the film by writer/director Brian Pera (The Way I See Things) I knew the film was be an anthology inspired by classic women’s films of the thirties, forties, and fifties. I also knew the story was divided into three sections, each of which deals with its own specific female character.

What I didn’t know is that it was part of Los Angeles’ 29th Annual Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, called “Outfest,” which I only bring up because the festival’s mission of “fostering artistic expression of gender, sexuality and LGBTQ culture and its transformative social impact on the world” was achieved in the first section of Pera’s powerful film.

The character “Ingrid,” is played by Calpernia Addams (“The Vagina Monologues,”) also known for her work in and for the transsexual community through Deep Stealth Productions. In Woman’s Picture, her character is a transwoman who visits the suburban Memphis home of her mother after ten years of estrangement. The last time she was there, Ingrid was a young man named Eddie.
