Abstract

"City" piece on "Tangible Fathers," an independent film by Bob Poirier, which will not be included in the 1999 New Year's Portland film festival. According to Maine Arts official Odelle Bowman, the festival's curator, the film was ineligible because it was shown at Portland's Keystone Theatre in June and she was only accepting films that had not been screened within the last year or two. But Poirier says that "Outlet Town" by Shoshana Hoose and "Among the Oats" by Jason Hall, two films that were accepted, had been screened within the last nine months and he believes his film was rejected because of its content, which Bowman denies. Poirier's film deals with a priest's homosexuality and includes a masturbation scene.
