SUBVERSIVE FILM SCREENINGS
SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 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.

Hell on Wheels is the birth of the rollergirl revolution, chronicling the creation of the first modern-era rollergirl league Bad Girl, Good Woman Productions (BGGW, later renamed as Texas Roller Derby / Lonestar Rollergirls) and the breakaway league the Texas Rollergirls. Filmed from the trenches, this documentary delivers the struggles and eventual success of the rollergirls as they construct a new sport and set forth to conquer the globe.
