A quasi un anno dalla release americana, Sky Cinema Uno HD manderà in onda tutti gli episodi di When We Rise, miniserie creata da Dustin Lance Black che racconta il cammino verso i diritti civili portato avanti dalla comunità omosessuale americana, a partire dalla nascita del movimento di liberazione omosessuale negli anni 70 fino ai giorni nostri, col “sì” della Corte Suprema ai matrimoni gay.
Le lotte e le conquiste del movimento LGBT americano, scandite in quattro episodi che prenderanno vita domani, martedì 3 ottobre, alle ore 21:15.
Fra i produttori, oltre allo stesso Black, anche Gus Van Sant (già regista di Milk e Will Hunting – Genio Ribelle) che ne dirige inoltre il primo episodio.
La miniserie narra la storia vera dell’attivista Cleve Jones (raccontata nella biografia My life in the Movement), interpretato da Guy Pearce (L.A. Confidential, Memento), intrecciandola con un racconto corale e generazionale sulle rivendicazioni del movimento LGBT americano, passando anche attraverso l’insorgere e il diffondersi dell’epidemia di AIDS a cavallo fra gli anni ’80 e ’90.
Seguiremo le storie dei tre protagonisti a partire dalla loro adolescenza fino all’età adulta: un giovane Cleve (interpretato da Austin P. McKenzie) che, dopo esser stato ripudiato dal padre psichiatra che ricorrerebbe alla lobotomia pur di “curare” il figlio, cercherà una nuova vita a San Francisco dove militerà nella cerchia di Harvey Milk; Roma Guy (cui prestano il volto Mary Louise Parker da adulta e Emily Skeggs in più giovane età) che prenderà a cuore la causa delle donne omosessuali escluse dal movimento femminista. Michael K. Williams (The Wire) e Jonathan Majors interpretano invece Ken, reduce dal Vietnam che affronterà la discriminazione razziale all’interno dello stesso movimento omosessuale.
