Space is Quite a Lot of Things

Director: August Joensalo
Finland, 2021, 11 minutes, experimental

Curiosity about a world without gender sets a journey through a world of jellyfish and disco uncles, creating space for four trans people to share how they relate (or not) to their own gender, imagine visions of their own queer utopia, and reveal whether gender can be felt in your toes.

Film screening dates: 23.09.2021 — 26.09.2021

August Joensalo is a Helsinki based film director and writer who uses film as a medium for creating relatable utopias for queer and trans people. They aim to find ethical ways to represent queer bodies on image, with a special focus on trans narratives. Through their practice, they propose alternative ways of being and existing in this world - ways that fall outside the binary of language, bodies, and identities. They are graduating from their MFA in Film at HDK-Valand in 2021.
