“Mrs. Vera’s Daybook” tells a story of historic activism and community art through the works of two San Francisco artists and long-term AIDS survivors. During one of the darkest periods in U.S. history, two men decide to bring joy and color to a broken community for which an entire movement has emerged. Supporters, fellow activists, and members of the queer art community help paint a vivid portrait of perseverance, compassion, and outrageous dime-store fashion. Director Robert James, who hails from Decatur, Ill., will attend this “hometown premiere.”

Also available virtually April 29-May 5
