Here’s what will be screening in Shanklin on Thursday evening, kicking off Wesleyan’s April Awareness Month. Also includes a presentation by the filmmakers themselves. More information below, here, and after the jump:
Criminal Queers is a film that visualizes a radical trans/queer struggle against the prison industrial complex and toward a world without walls. Remembering that prison breaks are both a theoretical and material practice of freedom, this film imagines what spaces might be opened up if crowbars, wigs, and metal files become tools for transformation.
