The Sons of Tennessee Williams

82 mins,  2011, Documentary, USA; Director:Tim Wolff; Dialogue: English; Subtitles: Chinese

50 years of New Orleans gay civil rights revolution Mardi Gras, drag balls and politics–where else could these elements come together but in New Orleans? Interweaving archival footage and contemporary interviews, The Sons of Tennessee Williams charts the evolution of the gay Mardi Gras krewe scene over the decades, illuminating the ways in which its emergence was a seminal factor in the cause of gay liberation in the South.

Bio-filmography of Director:

Tim Wolff received his education from the California Institute of the Arts Directing for Theatre and Film program, studying closely with director Alexander Mackendrick and two-time Oscar winning documentarian Terry Sanders. In 1999, he began the first of four productions at HBO as producer. He produced two segments for the popular HBO documentary show Real Sex with Wigstock: the movie filmmaker Barry Shils. The Sons of Tennessee Williams is his first feature documentary with Wolfhouse, Inc. Next up: The Ballad of Yes and No, a magical-realist musical comedy narrative feature.

Director’s Statement:

What you will see is the result of 2 years of searching for archival ball footage and still pictures. Thank god for the “vanity” factor. Despite the incredible loss of losing so many krewe members to AIDS and the damages from the flood waters, there was still plenty of such material and media for me to weave this story, without narration, which was my goal all along. This story is told by the men who lived it and no none else. I hope you will enjoy this microcosm of the American gay experience in the last half of the 20th century and appreciate the southern queens and the cast-iron fortitude that it has taken to prevail all through the years.
