7pm @Cinema 21 – We Have to Stop Now

Almost all of us have needed to see a therapist at some point in our lives and their help can be essential. Nonetheless, in the spirit of the phrase “Physician heal thyself” therapists also have a reputation for being some folks in most need of help. Enter the romantic dromedy We have to Stop Now, which follows a successful lesbian therapist couple on the dawn of their book release How to Succeed in Marriage Without Even Trying.

They’ve come to discover that not only do you have to try, but sometimes trying isn’t enough as their relationship begins to fail. They are secretly in couples counseling and have a sister crashing on the couch when a documentary film crew descends to film their perfect marriage.

Originally a web series you can watch the first episode below.

9pm @ Cinema 21 – The Sisters

Hard to miss, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are a vivacious nun-themed drag troupe who raise money various AIDS and HIV charities while having fun and not letting religion take itself too seriously. The Sisters have chapters all over the world and here German filmmakers follow orders in Berlin, Montevideo in Uruguay and San Francisco.

For anyone who has ever wondered why the Sisters wear white faces (or faces at all), this documentary lifts the veil for an inside look at the organization committed to safer sex, LGBT rights and performance art. As one original Sister says, “We’re not really anti-Catholic at all. We’re just anti-guilt, anti-hate, anti-negativity.”
