Back by popular demand, SQIFF presents Queer Classics. This year we are screening Gregg Araki’s Nowhere. The film is a 90s cult queer film complete with colourful punk sets and costumes, grungey soundscapes and silly stoner humour.

The film is the finale of Gregg Araki’s Teenage Apocalypse Trilogy series and intertwines camp teenage silliness with the darker elements of coming of age. Bisexual characters at the forefront of the narrative and Araki is a queer asian director. For curator, Nat Lall, it is a personal favourite and inspiration.

Rather than a panel, this screening is preceded with poetry from Blaxploitation Burner Tape 2023 read and written by Isaac Harris. Isaac is a local Queer Black poet whose work compliments the humour and radicalness of Nowhere.

Curated by Nat Lall.

Tickets are on a pay what you can sliding scale of FREE, £2, £4, £6, £8, or £10. To book, click here or call the CCA Box Office on 0141 352 4900.
