Criminal Queers will screen as part of the Captive Genders event at Brown University, its FREE and open to all.
Screening Friday October 21, 2016.
More about the festival:
Is there a link between how we’re divided into populations that can be caged and exiled by the prison-industrial complex, and the ways people’s bodies are violently categorised and segregated by race, class, gender or ability?
Over 3 days Episode 8 celebrates all the unruly ways we refuse to be defined by such violence, escape attempts to constrain us, tear down the walls of normative culture and build joy in flight.
Featuring: performances, discussions, screenings, workshop and a club with gender non-conforming rebels, students of blackness, lawyers, archivists, anarco-feminist street artists and witches, party hosts, filmmakers, prison abolitionists, poets, DJ’s, ex-prisoners and multi-media artists including:
