Jean's documentaries have been exhibited internationally in festivals, museums and on television. She Produced, Directed and Edited, SEX IN AN EPIDEMIC which premiered on Showtime Networks. This powerful documentary tells the heroic story of how the safer sex movement was born and how HIV prevention movements continue today. She created OFFERINGS, an interactive video altar that was featured in art exhibitions such as: Make Art/Stop AIDS, Fowler Museum, UCLA and NOT ALONE, Durban Art Gallery, Durban, South Africa, and subsequently touring throughout South Africa.

Her personal films are often unorthodox investigative reports on subjects that have been all but erased from history. She Produced, Directed and Edited, TO CATCH A GLIMPSE, (Museum of Modern Art, NYC, permanent collections) in which she delves into her family history by trying to find out if the rumors about her grandmother's death -- are true. In L IS FOR THE WAY YOU LOOK, which aired on PBS/WNET, she pieced together lesbian history using whatever scraps of gossip and memory she could find into a humorous portrait of a population's creative tussle for visibility and inclusion.

Jean is a professor of Media Arts and Director of the Television Center at LIU Post.

It is an in-depth 'warts and all' portrait of one of the most important and controversial figures in contemporary gay America, a political firebrand who gave voice to the outrage and grief that inspired a generation of gay men and lesbians to fight for their lives. He's a complicated man, who, at 78, still commands our attention. For more information visit our Facebook Page
