Author: The JT Leroy Story - Night 3 of the PFF Summer Showcase
This event is for Author: The JT Leroy Story only

For night three we've got an acclaimed documentary called Author: The JT Leroy Story. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize.

Synopsis: On January 9, 2006 The New York Times sent shockwaves through the literary world when it unmasked it boy wunderkind JT LeRoy, whose tough prose about a sordid childhood had captivated icons and luminaries internationally. It turned out LeRoy didnt actually exist. He was the creative expression of 40-year-old San Francisco former phone-sex operator turned housewife, Laura Albert. Author: The JT LeRoy Story takes us down the infinitely fascinating rabbit hole of how Laura Albertlike a Cyrano de Bergerac on steroidsbreathed not only words, but life, into her avatar for a decade. Alberts epic and entertaining account plunges us into a glittery world of rock shows, fashion events, and the Cannes red carpet where LeRoy becomes a mysterious sensation. As she recounts this astonishing odyssey, Albert also reveals the intricate web spun by irrepressible creative forces within her. Her extended and layered JT LeRoy performance still infuriates many; but according to Albert, channeling her brilliant fiction through another identity was the only possible path to self-expression.

Stick around after the film for the discussion.
