Director Vivian Kleiman charts the history-making work of gay comic artists from the 1970s to the present and beyond in this lively, litigious work of anthology and celebration. Vividly translating these bright, imaginative, and triumphant images from the page to the screen with great kinetic energy, Kleiman makes a case for the beauty, artistic value, and historic legacy of five of the most influential artists in the queer comic space; titans Alison Bechdel (Fun Home), Rupert Kinnard (Cathartic Comics), Howard Cruse (Stuck Rubber Baby), Jen Camper (Juicy Mother), and Mary Wings (Come Out Comix). No Straight Lines world premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
