CGiii Comment

An absolutely fascinating story...worthy of a feature.

It really didn't need the talking heads, with their ridiculous presumptions and suppositions.


Trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

J.C. Leyendecker was one of the most prominent artists of his time, but his story is largely forgotten. Forced to keep his sexuality a secret, his coded imagery spoke directly to the gay community and laid the foundation for LGBTQ representation in advertising today. Featuring Neil Patrick Harris. Winner of Best Short Documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival and a Doc NYC Short Shortlist selection.
