Jason and Shirley | Dir. Stephen Winter | 79 mins | USA | 2015
Q&A with Scriptwriter and lead actor Jack Waters

A rebellious response to Portrait of Jason this film recreates the narrative of the 1967 original 12 hour shoot from an imagined standpoint of Jason himself. Tavia Nyong’o wrote in the Guardian: “For generations of queer men of color who have been horrified by Holliday’s on-screen fate, Jason and Shirley offers a reinvention of a historical moment that sought to consign them to the roles of mascots and scapegoats.”
