Kat Lindner Tribute: Tomboy

October 6, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Free - £8
A white child with short, messy blond hair, wearing a white vest and blue tracksuit top falling off their shoulders, stares sullenly ahead. A wall with light green and pink flowered wallpaper is behind them.

French queer filmmaker Celine Sciamma’s naturalistic drama about childhood gender identity is touching, painful, and humorous all at once. Ten-year-old Laure has moved with her family to a new neighbourhood. The local kids take her for a boy and instead of correcting them, Laure introduces herself as Mikael and starts living a double life, with her parents unaware of her secret and her young sister persuaded to play along.

Screening in celebration of Festival co-founder Kat Lindner, who passed away earlier this year. We screened Tomboy at the first ever SQIFF event alongside an intro from Kat, who also wrote about the film in her academic work. We’ll read out Kat’s original intro and share our memories of her.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.
