Eye on the Guy: Alan B Stone and the Age of Beefcake
Alan B. Stone: astute businessman, quiet suburbanite, and master of the homoerotic pin-up.
Eye on the Guy: Alan B. Stone & the Age of Beefcake explores the little-known world of Montreal's physique photography scene, a distinct gay subculture that emerged in the '50s and '60s, through the life and work of one of its most creative figures. Operating under the social radar of post-war Canada, Stone produced thousands of images of men; from Montreal bodybuilders to Pacific coast fishermen, from rodeo cowboys to the construction workers who built Expo 67.
This documentary chronicles the US tour of a group of Black lesbian poets and musicians, who become present-day stewards of a historical movement to build community among queer women of color. Their journey to strengthen their community is enriched by insightful interviews with leading Black feminist thinkers and historians.
As the group tours the country, the film reveals their aspirations and triumphs, as well as the unique identity challenges they face encompassing gender, race, and sexuality. This is a rarely seen look into a special sisterhood - one where marginalized voices are both heard and respected.
