Preserved by the LGBT film festival Outfest and restored by the UCLA Film & Television Archive, these three obscure shorts range from a historical curio (Queens at Heart) to an accidental work of art (Mona's Candelight). Found at a flea market, Candelight (1950) consists of color footage shot in a San Fransisco lesbian bar; the in-camera editing, images of half-lit faces, and murky audio suggest a melancholy lost world. Queens (circa 1967), a patronizing exposé about drag queens and transsexuals, has a smug, lurid tone that makes the interviewees' candor all the more disarming. Debra Chasnoff and Kim Klausner's Choosing Children (1984), the only film on the program that wasn't made anonymously, is an informative documentary about the social and legal issues involved in lesbian parenting.
