Dustin Lance Black posted this photo of himself and director Gus Van Sant in the air – on their way to Russia.
They, of course, are the writer and director of the film Milk and have been joined by the film’s producer, Bruce Cohen on this trip to a film festival in St. Petersburg for a screening of their movie.
Yes, Russia, the country with the anti-gay propaganda law.
The trio will participate in a screening of the film and a Q and A session at St Petersburg’s LGBT Bok o Bok (Side by Side) Film Festival on Saturday to close the festival.
Van Sant, Black and Cohen carried through with their plans to share their film about the late Harvey Milk despite a series of bomb threats that have been made against the festival aimed at disrupting screenings.
Black won an Academy Award for his screenplay for the film.
