The Bottom: A Noise Opera
Louisiana | Directed by Lucia Honey 23 minExperimental

Queer and self-loathing in Las Vegas. A day in the nightlife of noise diva, Oblivia: a spiral on the Vegas Strip, a sensational pop moment in the Chisos Mountains, and lost at sea lake with only a giant yellow inflatable duck.

Online Panel: Vision and the Body in Queer Feminist Cinema
Saturday, Oct 24, 2020 2:30pm - 3:30pm

Join Celebrity Guest Filmmaker Marianna Palka as she speaks with Suzan Iravanian (Dir. Leakage), Lucia Honey (Dir. The Bottom: A Noise Opera) and Outgaze Programmers about the themes of the Outgaze Film Festival and the visions in the dark film block. This geopolitical conversation will examine desire, embodiment, the erotic and the esoteric and how the filmmakers weave these topics with political (and literal) landscapes/geographies as well as the queer/feminist imagination in cinema.

All event times are Central Time.

Also screening

our bodies, our shadows Poster

How are we haunted? How is our labor a reconstruction and reckoning with the past? How does embodied memory dialogue with self-doubt, self-preservation and self-care?

Pain and privilege are paired side by side in cycles of resilience with a vulnerable honesty in this series of hyper realistic films that offer a snapshot of embodied communal conversations between female identifying - past, present and future.

The feature film 36 Hours is part of this block.

36 Hours

part of our bodies, our shadows | Louisiana

An unusual combination of disorientation and euphoria occurs in the hours leading up to the birth of expectant mother Angelle’s first child. Weaving immersive verite filmmaking and expressionistically captured movement sequences this tender document of quiet love, celebrates the natural processes of life and the labor in existence. 36 Hours is an intimate visceral journey through one of our most universal experiences: the process of birth.
