OTHER 2015 EVENTS
the watermelon woman screening
9th September 2015 7:30pm, Wharf Chambers
Leeds Queer Film Festival are excited to be teaming up with Scalarama to bring you a special screening of the queer classic The Watermelon Woman (1996, dir. Cheryl Dunye). It was the first feature film directed by a black lesbian filmmaker and it explores issues of race, sexuality, history and representation in cinema. The Watermelon Woman stars Cheryl Dunye as a young woman making a film about an enigmatic black actress from the 1930s known for her stereotypical ‘mammy’ roles whilst simultaneously addressing issues in the character’s personal life and relationships.
ANCIENT FUTURE AT POMOGAZE QUEER ARTS FESTIVAL
11 July 2015 at Leeds Art Gallery
PoMoGaze welcomes Leeds Queer Film Festival who have organised a screening of Ancient Future, a collection of short films by Queer Rebels.
From a queer apocalyptic land, to a 70 year-old bodybuilder, to a young girl fleeing Iran at night, what does our collective future/freedom look like? ANCIENT FUTURE is irreverent, rejecting exotification – and paying homage to the wisdom of our ancestors and homelands. ANCIENT FUTURE – we claim it queer with these cosmic creations.
