Free – £8
A white person, Pedro Lemebel, with white facial and dark eye make-up stares at the camera. His head is engulfed by red feathers.

Pedro Lemebel’s sharp, poetic texts and provocative performances make him one of South America’s most significant artists. Under Pinochet’s dictatorship in Chile, Lemebel expressed things most wouldn’t dare. For the country’s left-wing opposition, his queerness made him an awkward figure as he exposed their machismo and homophobia. Lemebel embodied an uncomfortable gay identity and fiercely criticised the wish of some queer people to assimilate. Lemebel uses slides and video clips to shape an essay-like memento, enhanced with intimate interviews, to portray a tireless fighter who continued to speak out until the end of his life.

Joanna Reposi Garibaldi will join us for a Q&A after the screening. Kindly sponsored by Scottish Documentary Institute. Part of strand Latinx Legends. Joanna will also be giving a workhop on documentary filmmaking as part of the Festival. Click here for more information.
