SUBVERSIVE FILM SCREENINGS
FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 7:00PM
$5 ADMISSION PER EVENING

“Subversive" is a mini-art festival encompassing a group art exhibition, curated by Ryan Joseph, and series of film screenings exploring the seemingly “benevolent” appeal of subcultures. The festival will point out the parallels that exist among the subcultures of Burlesque, the Ball Scene, Roller Derby, Lucha Libre, among others. The event will look at alternative conceptions of "masculinity" and "femininity" in spaces that redefine the role of gender and sexuality in a hetero-normative society. We will discover how these subcultures relate to each other and sociopolitical movements, and how they influence mainstream attitudes and culture. The film festival will take place April 22-24 at 7:00pm each night. 

Title: Against a Trans Narrative (filmmaker present)
Director: Jules Rosskam

Trans filmmaker Jules Rosskam's provocative and personal experimental documentary investigating dominant constructions of trans-masculine identity, gender, and the nature of community. 
Running Time: 61min

Title: Well Dressed
Director: Elliot Montague
Synopsis:
This experimental documentary meditates on the space between two bodies and explores three key bodies in transition: the erotic "cruising" body, the transgender body, and the pregnant body. In depicting moments of change or redefinition for these physical bodies, Well Dressed imagines unexpected points of convergence. 
Running Time: 10min
