* Author Scott Alexander Hess interviewed Michael Lucas about his debut feature documentary Undressing Israel: Gay Men in the Promised Land, which makes its world premiere today at the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival. (For more background, CLICK HERE for my Queerty story about the film.) [Huffington Post Gay Voices]
* Speaking of documentaries, Mr. Angel has been picked to screen at the forthcoming SXSW Festival in the Documentary Spotlight section. The feature from director Dan Hunt tells the story of trans performer, entrepreneur and activist Buck Angel. “The film follows Buck as he creates a new genre in porn trying to change the belief that you need a penis to be a man,” notes the program notes. “Mr. Angel packs a universal lesson of acceptance and is a portrait of an unlikely hero.” The festival unspools March 8-17 in Austin, Texas.
