Don’t Bring Scott, a film by IMA alum David Pavlosky, has been selected to screen at this year’s ICE Film Fest on Saturday, February 20th.
The film is a personal documentary portrait that investigates the roots of homophobia in the American family and its reinforcement via religion and society. When David’s working-class parents decide to celebrate their 46th wedding anniversary without inviting his life partner, this All-American, rural family is dragged into the 21st century.
