SQIFF18
A Deal with The Universe

Sun 9 December 2018

Documentary A Deal with the Universe is filmmaker Jason Barker's debut feature. Autobiographical and made entirely from personal archive and home video diaries, the film follows Jason's incredible story of how he came to give birth to his child, charting over 15 years of his and his partner's life. This film is groundbreaking in terms of its intimate insights into gender identity and new parenthood.

Jason Barker will join us after the screening to take part in a discussion. In partnership with Rainbow Families.

Film is in the English language with English language captions for D/deaf and Hard of Hearing access. The post-screening discussion will be BSL interpreted. Hearing loop available.

Film relies on visual material to convey ideas but has a reasonable amount of explanatory voiceover and commentary, so is relatively accessible for blind and partially sighted audiences. Large print versions of handouts available.

Limited comfy seating (beanbags) available. To reserve, please contact access [at] sqiff.org.

We have a limited travel fund to assist people to come to the Festival for those who could not otherwise afford to attend. If you would like to apply for this, please contact access@sqiff.org.
