Shorts: Film Is Resistance!
Entangling aesthetics, politics and desire, the filmmakers in this programme engage the short form as a radical space in which to enact change and explore the elastic parameters of self-identity. Celebrating the pioneering gender experimentation of firebrand writer Kathy Acker, and a powerful reclamation of the representations of trans bodies and narratives. Plus, the heteronormative gaze reversed in a testimony to the joyful solidarity of queer communities and networks.
