Looking Awry: Representing Bisexual* Desires On Screen

September 30, 2017 @ 12:45 pm - 2:15 pm

Free - £8

In LGBT+ politics and activism bisexual people are often left out of the conversation. To consider bisexual people – our lives, our desires, and the difficulties we face – enriches our understanding of sexuality, foregrounding issues that we otherwise might not consider. This is eye-opening when considering cinematic representations of bisexuality. Taking a ride through cinema’s invocations of bisexuality, from well-known Hollywood neonoir thrillers to underground queer filmmaking to the extremities of European art cinema, let’s take a moment to consider representations of bisexual desire on screen.

Presented by Jacob Engelberg, programmer of Brighton-based queer film strand, Eyes Wide Open Cinema. In partnership with Queer Film Network UK & Ireland.

ACCESS: Level access at entrance of CCA with Cinema space on ground floor. Accessible toilets available. BSL interpretation for event. Hearing loop.

Content note: discussion of sexual assault and suicide.
