Transfinite

October 5 @ 3:00 pm - 4:20 pm

Free - £8
Two drawn or painted people of colour standing facing each other. One with their back to us is painted orange-yellow with a grey vest and red and green stripes on their uppers arms. The other facing us is pink with a purple flower headband and a yellow vest. The background is a torquoise-white shade.

Transfinite is a sci-fi omnibus feature film by Neelu Bhuman composed of seven standalone short stories where supernatural trans and queer people from various cultures use their powers to protect, love, teach, fight, and thrive. Most of us have been in situations where we feel completely powerless and deeply frustrated with the unfairness of it all. Sometimes we have lost control of life and sometimes we find a way to use our rage, resentment, and frustrations to grow a beautiful garden. In Transfinite, the protagonists, like smooth warriors, choose to find that inner power and use it to transform undesirable situations into desirable ones in a snap.

Screening with Tomgirl (10m), in which a young Filipino boy in Australia gets an enchanting crash-course in his homeland culture.

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.
