Join the Pulitzer Center on Monday, June 28, at 2:00pm EDT for a screening of the Pulitzer Center-supported short documentary Flamenco Queer and a discussion with the filmmakers Ana González and Frederick Bernas.

Flamenco Queer follows dancer Manuel Liñán as he prepares for a groundbreaking showcase of flamenco in drag. He works with six other men to put on a cathartic and unapologetic performance after dancing behind closed doors for decades.

González is an award-winning documentary filmmaker interested in social issues who has reported all over the world for outlets such as the BBC, The New Yorker, and National Geographic. Bernas is a filmmaker and journalist who has been based in Moscow, New York, and Latin America, and he joined an expedition to Antarctica in 2017. His video and film work has appeared on the BBC, Al Jazeera English, and CNN.
