Description


CLOSING NIGHT: LUPE PLUS BROWN QUEERS SUNDAY 01.12.19 — 5:00PM



DOORS OPEN HALF AN HOUR BEFORE EACH SESSION.


To close tilde for 2019, we bring stories of intersectionality to centre stage.




BROWN QUEERS

UK, 2017, 26 MINS DIR: MICHELLE WILLIAMS GAMAKER

Follows Krishna Istha, Katy Jalili, Natasha Lall and Umber Ghauri, all individuals who identify as queer and brown, who explore current modes of identity through varied personas and styles. Beyond this, complexities related to nationality, race, gender and sexuality play out through their bodies and in the different contexts in which they live and work. ‘Brown Queers’ poses questions that come out of the layered states of being that embody fluidity, “brownness” and “queerness”.


LUPE

USA, 2018, 79 MINS DIR: ANDRE PHILLIPS & CHARLES VUOLO

Rafael, a young Cuban immigrant and trained boxer, is searching for their long-lost sister Isabel in New York City. Against a gritty and often bloody underworld background, Rafael is joined by Elsa who learns of their suppressed transgender identity, and Lana, who serves as both friend and mentor to Rafae while also on her own journey of self-discovery. Together, Rafael and Lana navigate a challenging world that doesn’t yet recognise their gender identities while Rafael’s search for Isabel continues.
