SQIFF18 DESIRES AND RESISTANCE | UNEARTHING TRANS LEGACIES
Sat 8 December 2018
Desiresand Resistance 840g
Anonymous sexual encounters and flirtations with the camera, dress-up with Flawless Sabrina, and a night at the Stonewall Inn with Marsha P. Johnson: this programme proposes alternative modes of retrieving and disseminating a trans past through an erotic gaze. Addressing an erasure of trans legacies, these works place trans* sexual expression and resistances in conversation with a non-linear idea of history that is both real and fabricated, defiantly looking toward a future of pleasure, play, and beauty.
Curated and presented by Finn Paul in partnership with Outfest LGBTQ Film Festival in LA.
Films in the English language with English language subtitles/captions. The introduction will be BSL interpreted. Hearing loop available.
Films rely on visual material to convey ideas, so are less accessible for blind and partially sighted audiences. Large print versions of handouts available.
Comfy seating (bean bags) available. If you would like to reserve this, please contact firstname.lastname@example.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 email@example.com.
