QCCA & AAACC present
Home and Abroad: Video and Film by Queer Caribbean Filmmakers
Curated by Jackie Francis and Rudy Lemcke
AAACC, 7:30pm
Tix $10, NOTA
This program presents the work of queer artists from the Caribbean and its diaspora: the filmmakers hail from Colombia, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago, and the United Kingdom. In comedy and drama, and with animation and lyrical and experimental styles, they tell stories of love, desire, and self-discovery. The subjects are Caribbean carnival, the coming-of-age journey, bad romances, slavery’s legacies, and simmering seduction.
The screening will be preceded by The Afro Queer Masquerade – Dontuntrah, starting at the GLBT History Museum at 5pm, proceeding to Strut, and ending at the Harvey Milk Plaza. Mas, short for masquerade, is rooted in religious rituals. Like New Orleans’ Mardi Gras, mas is a cultural celebration in which participants don costumes and makeup to play, sing, and dance during the pre-Lenten season. Refreshments will be served at the African-American Art and Culture Complex (AAACC).
