Product Notes

William E. Jones's autobiographical film about growing up gay in the small Ohio town of Massillon pushes the boundaries of documentary by offering a poignant self-portrait within the context of gay political history. Combining provocative voiceover with evocative imagery, Massillon gets it's message across and tells Jones's story without the presence of onscreen human narrators or actors. Part One: Ohio - offers shots of Massillon, a Rust Belt town victimized by outsourcing, as Jones recounts memories of his youth. Part Two: The Law - shows images of government buildings as Jones recites laws restricting sexual activity. And, Part Three: California - contrasts the neutral landscapes of Santa Clarita with a narration detailing the history of sexual persecution. As noted by Lawrence Chua in Art forum, Massillon uses the quiet landscapes of the American Midwest to look at a history disfigured by myths of the family, patriotism, and religion.
