HIDDEN LIVES & SECRET HISTORIES SCREENING:

INVISIBLE WOMEN / THE ARCHIVETTES

Having endured as a clandestine community for many generations, it is no surprise that so many historical records and folk archives of the lesbian community have been lost, or deliberately erased. With this specially curated programme, GAZE wishes to highlight these forgotten histories, with the documentaries Invisible Women and The Archivettes — two non-fiction films that explore small yet revolutionary acts of defiance and resistance, which helped to promote greater visibility of lesbian women and the wider LGBT community.

WOMEN'S SHORTS

Love is a gift, sex is a joy, and when you get those two things together it’s hard to let go of and painful when you do. These shorts are about the strength of that bond, the work it takes to sustain it and what it is to live a life always deserving it.

REMEMBERING QUEER TRAILBLAZERS: MARLON RIGGS

 

The early 1990s ushered in a new wave of filmmakers - Todd Haynes, Gregg Araki - provocative, incisive directors fed up of the queer narratives hijacked by mainstream cinema. This time became known as New Queer Cinema. Among them was Marlon Riggs: a unique voice, speaking truth to power. And while Haynes and Araki matured into respected and lauded filmmakers, Riggs did not have that luxury.  Riggs died of AIDS-related illnesses in 1994, but not without leaving a powerful legacy and a body of work that still astonishes today. GAZE pays tribute to Marlon Riggs on the 30th anniversary of his seminal work, Tongues Untied, and his short film Affirmations.
