Program made in cooperation with Cinema Queer International Film Festival
This program incorporates films which deal with the unity of feminist ideas as trans*feminist. Each of the films is evidence that trans*experiences, gender nonconformity and non-normativity have always been pivotal to the feminist agenda.
Curators: Mariam Agamyan, Augustina Vasile
A significant trait of feminist cinema and filmmaking is the ability to speak in the first person about experiences of oppression and systemic discrimination, such as racism. The films in this program powerfully and aptly articulate anti-oppressive messages within their narratives, whether real or imaginary.
