FEATURE NARRATIVE

Jason and Shirley

directed by Stephen Winter

Based on historical events, Jason and Shirley reimagines the electrifying 1966 power struggle between Jason Holliday—a destitute, black middle-aged homosexual—and Shirley Clarke—a Jewish, wealthy, Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker—over the 12-hour marathon filming session in the Chelsea Hotel that gave rise to Clarke’s iconic 1967 documentary Portrait of Jason.
