Film screening: Suited

Thursday, April 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm


Off the Square Screening Room presents “Suited,” a documentary about custom suits, accepting difference, and living bravely in one’s own skin.

“Suited” follows its subjects — clients seeking a personalized experience — into the minimalist office space of Bindle & Keep, a bespoke tailoring company based in Brooklyn that caters to a diverse LGBTQ community and looks beyond the gender binary, creating custom-made suits for gender-nonconforming and transgender clients. Clothier duo Rae and Daniel take a holistic approach to their work, considering each client’s personal narrative, which becomes inextricable from the creation of the perfect suit. From Derek’s emotional journey as he prepares for his wedding, to Everett, a law student in a conservative environment, or Mel, who simply wants to look good for their 40th birthday party—the need for well-fitting garments represents deeper meaning around identity, empowerment, and feeling good.

Off the Square Screening Room is a partnership between the Medford Film Collaborative,  Medford Community Media, and the Media department of the Medford Technical High School. On the first Thursday of each month, the Screening Room features documentary and independent films that explore a wide range of subjects.

Admission is free, but a $5 donation is suggested to support the Screening Room series.

Medford Community Media is located at Medford High School and houses the city’s public access television station. The entrance is to the right of the main school entrance, near the automotive shop.

Off the Square Screening Room is made possible by in part by the Arts Alive Medford Foundation.
