Teddy winner
Maximo Oliveros to screen in NYC

Filipino gay film opens New Directors/New Films series.

Fresh from winning the Teddy Award as the best gay feature film at the Berlin Film Festival, The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros will open the 35th New Directors/New Films series in New York City. Ryan Fleck's Half Nelson will be the other opening film of the event, sponsored by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art's film and media department. Oliveros tells the story of a flamboyant 12-year-old whose infatuation with a neighborhood cop jeopardizes his relationship with his outlaw father and thuggish brothers. Other films of queer interest in the series include Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland's Sundance winner Quinceanera; the Danish A Soap; Twelve and Holding, the latest from L.I.E. director Michael Cuesta; and Cam Archer's Wild Tigers I Have Known, executive-produced by Gus Van Sant.
