December 6, 2010 -- Philadelphia, PA -- Breaking Glass Pictures recently announced four DVD releases from its QC Cinema label, whose queer-themed titles cater to LGBT audiences. The December titles include: The Stranger in Us (in stores Dec. 7), Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement, Taxi zum Klo: 30th Anniversary Edition, and Seeing Heaven (all three in stores Dec. 14).
Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement
Watch on youtube:
Critically-acclaimed documentary Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement retells the story of two New York women whose engagement lasted more than 40 years before they seized the opportunity to marry in 2007. The film was recently catapulted into the national spotlight when Edith Windsor ("Edie"), with the help of the ACLU, sued the government for marriage rights in the wake of Thea Spyer’s death. Directed by Susan Muska and Greta Olafsdottir (The Brandon Teena Story), the film garnered more than 20 audience and jury awards during its film festival run.
The Stranger in Us
Watch on youtube.
The Stranger in Us, which premiered to a sold-out crowd at this year’s Frameline LGBT film festival in San Francisco, is a poetic, verité-style drama about a small-town gay man who must cope with a break-up while settling into a new life in San Francisco.
Taxi zum Klo
Taxi zum Klo – a classic of the queer genre – returns 30 years after its original – and highly controversial - theatrical release with this digitally remastered collector’s edition. The film, which the Village Voice called "the first masterpiece about the mainstream of male gay life" follows a gay school teacher who lives a double life of lesson plans and nightly hookups in public restrooms.

Seeing Heaven combines suspense and gay eroticism with its tale of a hustler whose sexual encounters trigger visions of a masked killer. Winner of Best Cinematography at the Yellow Fever International Film Festival, the film also played at this year's Philadelphia QFest and was described as "a moody, at times creepy, very sexy and intensely atmospheric thriller."
