The Queensland AIDS Council and QN Magazine are hosting a free community screening of new drama film 1985 later this month, and you’re invited.

Shot on black-and-white Super 16mm film, writer-director Yen Tan’s 1985 takes a unique look at a pivotal moment in American history through the prism of empathy, love and family.

In the film, closeted advertising executive Adrian (Cory Michael Smith, TV’s Gotham) returns to his Texas hometown for the holidays after three years away, during the first wave of the AIDS crisis.

Burdened with an unspeakable tragedy in New York City, Adrian looks to reconnect with his preteen brother Andrew (Aidan Langford) while navigating his relationship with religious parents.

When he reaches out to his estranged childhood friend Carly (Jamie Chung), their unresolved issues force Adrian to confront an uncertain future that will significantly alter the lives of those around him.

The special advance screening of 1985, hosted by QN and QuAC, will be held on Tuesday April 23 at 6:30pm at Dendy Cinemas Coorparoo.

We have 50 tickets to the screening to give away away to readers. Terms and conditions apply. To book your free ticket, click here.
