OUR DANCE OF REVOLUTION

Wednesday, 19:00 (Location: Spedition)
Sunday, 15:00 (Location: City 46)

 

Canada | 2019 | Direction: P. Pike | 102 Min. |

English with German subtitles

 

"We are people of revolution. We are here because others have rebelled. Because others have stood in solid resistance!"
Phillip Pike's documentary tells the story of Toronto's black queer and trans* community. Diverse, cross-generational accounts are dedicated to the struggles for visibility and against police violence in building a powerful black queer community that today culminates in Toronto's chapter of the "Black Lives Matter" movement.

The film shows the courage, tenacity, dedication and creativity with which activist communities and discourses have been built, the organization of safer and more life-affirming spaces, and last but not least, always gives room for dance in this queer black revolution!

Content warning: verbal aggression against black people

Argentina | 2018 | Direction: A. Carri | 115 Min. |

Spanish with German subtitles

 

From Tierra del Fuego to the southern tip of Patagonia, three friends embark on a road trip in which they explore the freedom of their sexuality. One of them wants to shoot a porno, the second wants to save her family's Gran Torino, the third is wanted by the police after getting into a bar fight with homophobes. Throughout a breathtaking landscape, director Albertina Carri, one of the most prominent representatives of New Argentinian Cinema, unfolds an explicit, poetic and sensual journey towards the freedom of sexual identities beyond claims of possession and monogamous ways of loving. Porno polyamorous.

Cantonese with German subtitles

 

Pak has been a taxi driver in Hong Kong his whole life and can't quite let go of work yet. While cruising in the park he meets Hoi. Hoi is already retired and, like Pak, has grandchildren. Calmly and subtly, the film observes the two getting closer - and how difficult it is to break out of one's own social conventions and deal with issues such as isolation in old age, traditional family roles and religiously motivated homophobia.

Germany | 2020 | Direction: J. M. Schmit | 82 Min. |

German with English subtitles

 

Markus owns an ostrich farm in the Uckermark region and takes attentive care of his grandmothers. Out of his loneliness, grows the desire to live in a queer community in a big city like Berlin. In his new apartment, his boxes are already waiting for him to unpack. Then he falls in love with Duc. Tucké Royale's screenplay and acting depicts queerness on the countryside in a glorious triviality. Even through the summer solitude of the Brandenburg, the tender interaction of all participants is refreshing, in front as well as behind the camera.
