REEL Affirmations on Demand presents a preview screening of “Nora Highland,” a film exploring praise given to straight actors in queer roles, beginning Friday, Feb. 26 at noon.

A $10 virtual ticket grants unlimited access to the film until noon on Saturday, Feb. 27. It also grants access to a pre-recorded Zoom Q&A with Director Ryan Spahn and the cast.

Shot entirely on computers during the pandemic, this film follows the challenging casting process a gay character confronts even for queer roles. This uniquely directed film is adapted from the similarly named play and seeks to educate as well as entertain.

Tickets and information are available at thedccenter.org.
