“Touch”

Michigan Theater (Screening Room)

In Shelly Silver’s most recent film, a man returns after fifty years to Chinatown in order to care for his dying mother. He is a librarian, a gay man, something of a watcher, and an impersonator. He passes the time collecting images which he places before us, his audience; witnesses and collaborators. Sitting in the dark, we share his cloak of invisibility, which seems both a benefit and a curse.
