Revry celebrates Black History Month with an entire February calendar highlighting incredible Black Queer content made by and for the community. “Black History Month is a time to celebrate the rich heritage and

contributions of Black Americans. It is especially poignant in this moment in history because we are so divided as a nation,” said LaShawn McGhee, Revry co-founder and an Army veteran. “Taking the time to highlight Black Americans and more specifically Queer Black American voices that unapologetically explore the Black Queer experience is a necessity, and I’m proud to be able to do that through Revry.” Revry will premiere three powerfully entertaining documenta-

ries: We Can’t Breathe, Voguing the Message and Heavenly Brown Body. Throughout the month, other premieres will include series

like Miseducated, Boys Hurt Too, His Story and Exhale. In addition, Revry Originals will include Linish, about the international trans DJ phenom; the Australian comedy Little Sista; To Be Me starring Emmy winner Kim Estes; and the powerful intersection of Black and Queer conversation series, Amplify Voices. The global Queer TV network, 75% founded by people of color and 50% Black women, has already been specifically championing Black voices with its existing Black Lives Matter curation of films, series and music videos. This month is an opportunity to find even more free Black entertainment playing on Revry’s Live Linear channels and on-demand.


John (Viggo Mortensen) lives with his partner Eric (Terry Chen) and their daughter, Mónica (Gabby Velis), in California, far from the traditional rural life he left behind years ago. John’s father Willis (Lance Henriksen), a headstrong man from a bygone era, lives alone on the isolated farm where John grew up. Willis is in the early stages of dementia, making the running of the farm on his own increasingly difficult, so John brings him to stay at his California home so that he and his sister Sarah (Linney) might help him find a place near them to relocate to. Unfortunately, their best intentions ultimately run up against Willis’s adamant refusal to change his way of life in the slightest. During his stay at John’s California home, tension builds between

Willis and the rest of the family. His abrasive nature, by turns caustic and occasionally funny, is aggravated by his memory loss, bringing past and present into conflict, and causing old wounds and years of mutual mistrust between father and son to rise to the surface. As Willis and John confront the events that have torn them

apart, including their differing recollections of John’s mother Gwen (Gross), the challenge they face is to find a way to forgive each other, to accept what has happened in the past and, most importantly, what is happening to them in the present. We embark on a journey from darkness to light, from rage and resentment, to acceptance and hard-won grace. You can check out Mortensen’s directorial debut, Falling, on

digital and on demand beginning Friday, February 5.
