Michael Schiavi appears in L.A. filmmaker Jeffrey Schwarz’s documentary “Vito”

 

Dear NYIT friends, 

L.A. filmmaker Jeffrey Schwarz has finished Vito, his new documentary on Vito Russo.  It will have its world premiere on Friday, October 14 at the New York Film Festival at Lincoln Center.

I’ve seen a rough cut of the film, and I can tell you that it’s superb, a perfect tribute to Vito and his legacy to the LGBT community.  Featuring original interviews of Lily Tomlin, Larry Kramer, Michelangelo Signorile, Armistead Maupin, Bruce Vilanch, Arnie Kantrowitz, and the late Arthur Evans, among dozens of others, Vito is a comprehensive portrait not only of the man himself, but of twenty years of gay and AIDS activism.  I couldn’t be prouder to be appearing in such a distinguished film.

I hope to see you at Lincoln Center!  For more info on the film and on ordering tickets—which are going fast!--please click here:  http://us2.campaign-archive1.com/?u=c9432948c83a6659f91341b4c&id=367e24fcca&e=f5789a1988

All the best,

Michael
