Making Montgomery Clift

aGLIFF and the Austin Film Society present the Texas premiere of Robert Anderson Clift & Hillary Demmon’s documentary MAKING MONTGOMERY CLIFT.

The All Genders, Lifestyles, and Identities Film Festival, formerly known as the Austin Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, along with the Austin Film Society, will host a screening of the Texas premiere of Robert Anderson Clift & Hillary Demmon’s documentary about the classic film star and queer icon Montgomery Clift in Austin on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar.

The iconic Hollywood actor Montgomery Clift — long described as “tragically self-destructive” and “tormented” by his sexuality — is being seen in a new light thanks in part to a documentary by his nephew Robert Clift, along with co-director Hillary Demmon. Using a a rich collection of never-before-seen footage from the family archives and exclusive audio interviews the documentary paints a much more complicated picture of the legendary actor that shows he was was unashamed of his sexuality, maintained a great sense of humor and even defied the studio system.

“I learned very early that there was a deep chasm between Monty, as remembered publicly, and Monty as remembered by family and loved ones,” says the actor’s nephew and documentary co-director Robert Clift. “This film gave me the opportunity to revisit those feelings and dig into the story behind the story. In the process, I hope that a more expansive view of my uncle’s life emerges, one that is truer to his powerful sense of integrity, creativity and intelligence.”

Interviews with family and close friends of Monty, including the personal accounts of his uncle Monty and father Brooks Clift, help paint a fresh portrait of star, complete with the actor’s passions, contributions and commitment to living and working in his own way and most importantly, one that shows that narratives made popular by previous biographies and documentaries that considered him “the slowest suicide in Hollywood history” were flawed. “The Montgomery Clift that most people know today,” says Demmon, “if they remember him at all, isn’t somebody his family and loved ones recognized. That’s a twofold loss – first of the person himself, and then of his memory.”

The Texas premiere of Making Montgomery Clift will screen at 7:30 PM on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar. Tickets are $12 (plus $1.49 service charge and $1.11 sales tax) and available on the Alamo Drafthouse website.

U.K. artist and songwriter Calum Scott releases a video for his latest single, “No Matter What.” The video was directed by Ozzie Pullin, who also directed Calum’s video for “What I Miss Most.”

The powerfully emotional video for “No Matter What,” details Calum’s journey of acceptance both of himself and of his family. It’s the perfect accompaniment to “No Matter What,” which Calum calls “without question, the most personal song I have ever written and the one I am most proud of. It’s a song born from loneliness and the heartbreaking but liberating tale of my coming-out experience. What I love about this song is that it isn’t just limited to a story of sexual identity, but about the relationship between parent and child and acceptance as a whole.”

Calum will release a Special Edition of his breakout debut album Only Human on November 30th. The album includes Calum’s hit single “You Are The Reason,” which is already certified Gold and has amassed almost 1 billion streams worldwide with over 330 million combined video views alone. His track “What I Miss Most,” which unfolds as a triumphant homage to his Northern England hometown, and version of “White Christmas” are both out now and available on the Special Edition album.

Billboard said, “Scott’s stunningly pure voice is affecting enough in itself, but his lyrics on every one of the [album’s] tracks are vulnerable and raw.” The Huffington Post says, “Calum Scott makes an impressive splash with his compelling debut album.” Calum was nominated for a Brit Award for Best Single, for his version of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” which became a global sensation with over 1.5 billion streams worldwide, and is now Platinum in five countries.

Local Austin songwriter Adrian Conner has released the video for the single “Unspeakable” from her latest EP, Spaz Kitty, released this past May. The video and song speak to the dynamics being in a ongoing three way way relationship of which I spent 5 years exploring,” explains Conner.

“The actual song lyrics are about an unwanted crush or unwanted romantic attention regardless of gender boundaries. ‘I’m not your girlfriend. I’m a Goddess.’ As the pop melody unfolds the intensity of band kicks up and crescendos into a dissipating electronic beat with the heartbroken lines. ‘You make me wanna disappear into sound’ Because music is the ultimate escape from an impossible situation if you let it.”

“Unspeakable” is on the Spaz Kitty EP, available through most online outlets, including Amazon and iTunes.

The five songs from the Spaz Kitty EP explore combining electronic music with the full on rock band. Conner explains, “Experimenting with DAW’s has opened up songwriting for me and enabled me to be more prolific than ever before.”

Her affection for all things rock n’ roll is evidenced by the fact that she has spent 17 years as the lead guitarist in Hell’s Belles, the highly touted all female AC/DC tribute band from Seattle. She serves in a similar capacity for the Judas Priest tribute Belles Bent For Leather. And most recently the exciting pair up of fellow tribute band pioneer Clementine of Zepparella to form the Dream Pop band Beaux Cheveux.
