GIBFF 2015 Outed: The Painful Reality of AIDS | A Profile In Courage: Linda L. Smith
A true Saturday afternoon double feature! Grab your popcorn and share two intimate portraits of triumph over adversity.

A PROFILE IN COURAGE: Linda L. Smith
Dir. Reginald D. Brown | USA 54 mins | Documentary
Independent Filmmaker Reginald D. Brown's "A Profile in Courage: Linda L. Smith" is a 54 minute, documentary film about the Founder and CEO of Four-D College, a vocational nursing school in Colton and Victorville, California.  Blending "Live" interviews, Stills, Archival footage, and dramatic re-enactments, Reginald tells the story of Linda Smith's 20 year journey to achieve her goal of starting and owning her own school.  Yet, the road to success was filled with potholes and rugged terrain.  However, through Linda's faith and belief in God, she overcomes the obstacles.  Today, she remains the only African American to have a fully accredited vocational career college in the State of California.

SCREENS WITH

OUTED:THE PAINFUL REALITY OF AIDS
Dir. Kamoga Hassan   | Uganda |  76 mins  | Documentary
On 25th February 2014, based on no evidence, a Ugandan tabloid published names and photographs of the people they perceived to be the "Top homosexuals" in the country. This outing not only provoked widespread hate messages towards people perceived to be of LGBTQ orientation but also instigated widespread debate among the Ugandan society. Based on a true story, the film looks into the life of John Alex Kigozi aka Vida who appears on the front page of the tabloid despite the fact that he had never disclosed his sexuality to anyone. Following the outing, Vida's life turns woeful when he consequently loses his job, his house and so much more.
