FILM: VISIONARY WOMEN - Queerama
Time & Location
About The Event
Join us for the final screening of our Visionary Women season, for an evening of film and discussion championing queer lives on screen.
In Queerama (2017, 70 mins, Rated 15), director Daisy Asquith tells a story of a century of queer experiences using archive footage from 1919 to the present. Scenes from popular cinema, newsreels and amateur film are combined with a stunning soundtrack by John Grant and Hercules & Love Affair to give an intimate view into the relationships, desires, fears and expressions of queer folk in the 20th century.
Before the feature we will be screening Juliet Jacques’ short film You Will Be Free, a reflection on ‘embodiment, the afterlife and political responses to the HIV/AIDS crisis’. Jacques is a writer and filmmaker whose work about culture, politics, gender and sexuality has been featured in many mainstream publications, including The Guardian.
We will be joined by Khalid Na from Eyes Wide Open, a Brighton-based queer cinema programme, to discuss the visibility of queer, trans and non-binary lives in cinema, archives and the media.
