Join us for a special screening of Darby Of The Dead, part of the Queer Rhapsody Film Series organized by UCLA Film & Television Archive.

After a near-death experience, Darby gains the ability to see dead people and becomes introverted, preferring to counsel spirits with unfinished business. This changes when Capri – the school’s Queen Bee – dies and pleads with Darby to convince her friends to proceed with her canceled “Sweet 17.” To appease Capri, Darby must reintegrate into high school life and find renewed joy among the living.

About Queer Rhapsody:

Queer Rhapsody, a community-led film series, centers the joy, healing, and narrative reinvention of contemporary LGBTQIA+ cinema. Showcasing a kaleidoscope of offerings: from features poised to achieve cult status, short-form experimental storytelling as alchemical guide, vanguard documentaries blazing a path for narrative change, and international films primed to accompany you on your next journey of self-discovery. Created to connect the vibrant Los Angeles queer film community by centering liberatory narratives, 15 shorts and feature screening programs will be anchored by five iconic venues and driven by a dedicated independent queer programming team, this city-wide collaboration aims to kindle a bright, hot summertime celebration of queer voices at its heart in service to belonging and igniting creative community connection across Los Angeles.

Organized by the UCLA Film & Television Archive, with support from the Andrew J. Kuehn, Jr. Foundation and the Robert Gore Rifkind Foundation. Curated by an independent programming team and presented in collaboration with community venues The American Cinematheque, Egyptian and Los Feliz 3; The Broad; UCLA Film & Television Archive, Billy Wilder Theater at the Hammer; and Vidiots Foundation.
