SQIFF
Looking Awry: Representing Bisexual* Desires On Screen

Sat 30 September 2017

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 programmer Jacob Engelberg. In partnership with Queer Film Network UK & Ireland.

Content note: discussion of sexual assault and suicide
