The Book of Gabrielle is a clever dramedy about an intimate yet platonic relationship that develops between a female graphic artist and an older male erotic novelist. Saul delights in Gabrielle's description of her past affairs and ongoing relationship with her younger girlfriend, Olivia (Anna Koval), just as Gabrielle likes to explore masculinity through Saul. Does he help Gabrielle find her artistic voice or is Saul finding his? Does she need to break from his patriarchy in order to find herself?

Preceding the screening, Director and star Lisa Gornick presents an accompanying one hour-long live drawing show titled, What (the Fuck) is Lesbian Cinema? 

This screening of The Book of Gabrielle will have have onscreen captions.
