NYWIFT Member Screening: Triple Threat

Join us for October's in-person NYWIFT Member Screening of the narrative feature Triple Threat, co-presented by The LGBT Community Center. The screening will be preceded by a reception and followed by a Q&A with the creative team.

Dreams of Broadway stardom meet the realities of adulthood in Triple Threat, the story of three long-time friends whose shared vision for success is jeopardized as each decides what’s most important in life—and how to achieve it. Bursting with vibrant original music and a distinctly Millennial vibe, this film is for every theater kid yearning to make it big, every family bonded by friendship and anyone who’s ever put it all on the line to realize their dreams.


Screening: The Journey of Monalisa

Both intimate and gloriously poetic, The Journey of Monalisa paints an aptly complex and empowering portrait of New York-based author and performer Iván Monalisa Ojeda. After 17 years, director Nicole Costa reconnects with her former classmate Iván Ojeda, who was known at the time as a talented theater director and playwright but has now reinvented themself as Monalisa. Intrigued by this transformation, Costa follows the gender-neutral two-spirit Iván Monalisa through the streets and clubs of New York, in their tough and vulnerable life filled with sexual encounters and addiction. All the while the ever-resilient Monalisa continues to write beautiful, raw pieces about life and survival in New York. Q&A with director Nicole Costa and subject Iván Monalisa Ojeda to follow. Presented in partnership with: The LGBT Community Center, NewFest and New York Latino Film Festival.
