NewFest at The Center Presents: Gemmel & Tim
February 24, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
The Center is proud to welcome back NewFest at The Center presents with a special presentation of Gemmel & Tim. This award-winning true crime documentary GEMMEL & TIM explores the lives and untimely passings of Gemmel Moore and Timothy Dean, two Black gay men who both died from meth overdoses at the home of West Hollywood politico Ed Buck. Their deaths at the now-infamous apartment sent shockwaves through the LGBTQ+ community. The ensuing media circus cooked up a spicy concoction of sex, drugs, race and politics, but had no appetite for the in-depth human stories of who these individuals truly were.
This documentary looks at Gemmel and Tim’s parallel walks of life through the eyes of their extended and chosen families: memories, correspondence, and things they did and didn’t share with each other. Through intimate recollections of their lost friends, each character exposes their own personal journey in dealing with grief. Powerful and galvanizing, GEMMEL & TIM simultaneously investigates the crimes and offers a cautionary tale to keep these events from repeating. Followed by a Q&A with producer/editor Niq Lewis
