Barbara May

8/12/2014–8/31/2014

Barbara May is a Berkshire County painter and maker of unique objects. These hand painted and assembled wooden maquettes express her long standing affection for and fascination with the icons of The Golden Age of the early silver screen. Installed in the Images Cinema turn-of-the-century lobby, we hope you'll agree that they re-capture some of the magic of the Silent Screen in miniature.

For Shirin, being part of a perfect Persian family isn’t easy. Acceptance eludes her from all sides: her family doesn’t know she’s bisexual, and her ex-girlfriend, Maxine, can’t understand why she doesn’t tell them. Even the six-year-old boys in her moviemaking class are too ADD to focus on her for more than a second. Following a family announcement of her brother’s betrothal to a parentally approved Iranian prize catch, Shirin embarks on a private rebellion involving a series of pansexual escapades, while trying to decipher what went wrong with Maxine.

  • Director: Desiree Akhavan

  • “Somehow manages to work with the coming-out narrative in a refreshingly honest (and hilarious) manner — without a hint of cliché or cheesiness.”
