Talk: Sacred Beings – On Gendering


IFFR 2020

Sacred Beings

The Sacred Beings programme curated by Darunee Terdtoontaveedej provides new context and perspectives for contemporary queer culture. This programme will discuss the shifting view of gender non-conforming people, LGBTQ movements and the false assumption that LGBTQ consciousness is a Western invention between the filmmakers and artists whose work are part of the programme, such as director Sarnt Utamachote, visual artists WangShui and Tanu Gago, with Mongolian activist Anaraa Nyamdorj.

The conversation concludes with a shapeshifting performance by Raoni Muzho Saleh as an invitation to reimagine what our bodies and spirits are capable of.

Sun 26 Jan, 14:30, Het Nieuwe Instituut, free admission
