Out glass artist Joseph Cavalieri, is in the midst of a 10-week residency at the GoggleWorks Center in Reading, where he is creating his latest series called “Disenchanted Alice,” a collection of six stained-glass panels based on the illustrations of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland.”

 Transgender filmmaker Kimberly Reed wrote, produced and directed — and even did the cinematography for — the gripping documentary “Dark Money,” opening July 20 at the Ritz at the Bourse. The film explores the timely subject of campaign-finance reform — or, as the film’s title suggests, those undisclosed corporate contributions that, by influencing elections, “buy” votes and change laws to achieve a specific agenda.

FX dance-musical series “Pose” is heating up the airwaves and making history by exploring the clashing social scenes of the ballroom culture and affluent high society in 1980s Manhattan. Besides merging high drama, high fashion and high times, the show features the largest cast of transgender actors in starring roles, as well as the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ characters ever for a scripted series.

 

The Lightbox Film Center (formerly International House) is screening a new restoration of the late, great Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s eight-hour 1972 miniseries “Eight Hours Don’t Make a Day: A Family Series” all day long July 7. The gay filmmaker, who helped create the wave of New German Cinema, directed a staggering 41 feature films and TV miniseries between 1969-82.
