We are excited to be this year hosting another exhibition of virtual reality films alongside several interactive projects at Glasgow Women’s Library during SQIFF 2019!
Confirmed films include Through Darcelle’s Eyes, in which Walter Cole, aka Darcelle XV, performer in the US West Coast’s longest running drag show, struts her stuff; Potato Dreams, featuring a mother and son navigating homophobia and the patriarchy in Russia; and Keyed Alike, a UK lesbian drama starring Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones). Viewers will experience the worlds created in these in 360 degrees!
Interactive projects include trans people in Japan, a cybertwee experience using the nostalgic style of early gaming; interactive documentary, My Mother’s Kitchen, in which LGBTQI+ individuals share stories of their childhood; and Panama Al Brown, an online comic about a black gay Panamanian who became the world’s first Hispanic boxing champion at the age of 26.
The exhibition is free and open to all, launching Thursday 3 October 5.30-7.30pm, and then open Friday 4 October 12-5pm and Saturday 5 October 12-3pm at Glasgow Women’s Library in Glasgow’s East End.
