SQIFF Shorts: I, You, Her

September 27, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:40 pm

Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 14.41.36

What would a programme of specifically feminist queer short films look like? We put one together and found the result focusing on relationships – between mothers and daughters, lesbian and queer romantic and sexual partners, trans women and cisgender society, black women and white society, women and their BDSM desires, women and masculinity, and between queers facing each other down over an arm wrestling match!

Each film in this programme will be entered into an award kindly sponsored by the Centre for Gender and Feminist Studies at Stirling University and voted for by the audience at the end of the screening.

Content note: discussion of misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, racism, and sexual violence.

Screening with English subtitles.

£5/£4 Conc/Free unemployed and asylum seekers. To book tickets please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.

Full Programme

I, You, Her (18m)

Dir. Zeynep Oral, Country: Turkey, Year: 2012

Two women from Turkey, Demet and Selma, explore how to survive in a misogynist and conservative society whilst trans. They refuse to play by patriarchal rules and reflect on the power of religion, government, and dominant ideologies, which impact trans women in their country.

FU377 (5m)

Dir. Neelu Bhuman, Country: UK, Year: 2014

The dignity of queer people in India is under attack through Section 377, which the Supreme Court recently re-introduced, re-criminalising ‘gay sex.’ Meanwhile, an adorable Indian mother is totally down with gay sex and wheels out some choice lines for her heartbroken queer daughter in an effort to cheer her up.

#BlackWomensLivesMatter (4m)

Dir. Xhercis Méndez, Country: USA, Year: 2014

The poetic affirmation of #BlackWomensLivesMatter shows us how to transform systemic devaluation.

Couple Time (6m)

Dir. Selina Robertson, Country: UK, Year: 2015

A suitcase full of Super 8 memories from Berlin.

Push Me (25m)

Dir. Tove Pills, Country: Sweden, Year: 2014

Siri feels frustrated about not daring to do what she wants and dreams about. Her fantasy is to dominate someone else sexually and her best friend Lee is trying to help her get rid of her fears and explore her desires.

Female Masculinity Appreciation Society (12m)

The Female Masculinity Appreciation Society is a gentlemen’s club of sorts.
