I Always Said Yes: The Many Lives of Wakefield Poole
I Always Say Yes: The Many Lives of Wakefield Poole
USA, 2014, 90 minutes
Director: Jim Tushinski

Proudly sponsored by Outbeat Radio  KRCB 91FM

I Always Said Yes: The Many Lives of Wakefield Poole tells the story of a sometimes overlooked gay liberation and independent film making pioneer. In late 1971, Wakefield Poole, a respected Broadway dancer and choreographer, had the audacity to put his real name above the title of his first film, a low-budget, hardcore gay erotic feature called Boys in the Sand. In an era when anyone making, promoting, or appearing in what the US government considered "pornography" could be liable for prosecution and jail time, Poole was a remarkably open gay film maker. He became internationally famous and his movies screened for years as examples that films could be artistic as well as sexually explicit. He didn't think of himself as a pornographer. He was a filmmaker who used his dance and theater background to create beautiful, erotic art films that "challenged the mind." To many, though, Poole just made dirty movies. Filled with gorgeous archival footage, excerpts from Poole's lushly photographed films, and illuminating interviews with Poole's contemporaries and colleagues, I Always Said Yes is a story of artistic integrity and disappointment, self-destruction, reinvention, love, sex, fortitude, and a little musical comedy. For mature audiences only.
