Queerspace FC (film club): Bent Bars shows Criminal Queers

At The Showroom, London, United Kingdom
On 7th March 2018 6:30 p.m.

Description

Doors open at 6 - Film should start around 630 :)

This evening Queerspace FC (film club) joins Bent Bars project for their screening of Criminal Queers at The Showroom in Maida Vale.

Criminal Queers, directed by Eric A. Stanley and Chris E. Vargas (USA, 2015, 63 min) visualises a radical trans/queer struggle against the prison industrial complex and toward a world without walls. Remembering that prison breaks are both a theoretical and material practice of freedom, this film imagines what spaces might be opened up if crowbars, wigs, and metal files become tools for transformation. Follow Yoshi, Joy, Susan and Lucy as they fiercely read everything from the Human Rights Campaign and hate crimes legislation to the non-profitisation of social movements.
