You’re invited to a special screening of BIG JOY at The Clyde Theatre at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 15.

What: A special screening of the award-winning documentary, “BIG JOY: the Adventures of James Broughton.” Co-director Stephen Silha & master cellist & co-creator of the BIG JOY soundtrack Jami Sieber will also be there.

Big JoyAbout the Film: James Broughton’s advice, “Follow your own Weird,” animates the inspiring documentary “BIG JOY: The Adventures of James Broughton,” which shows how this queer filmmaker and poet fought against the grain of dominant culture to live an authentic life. BIG JOY explores Broughton’s life, art and love where he weaves the quirky, bizarre, sexual and charming—all with a sprinkle of spirituality.

Why: Benefit for Charlie Murphy, a South Whidbey resident who was diagnosed with ALS earlier this year.
