A radical queer film program crafted by Chris Vargas and Eric Stanley featuring the world premier of our new film HOMOTOPIA.

Set sometime in the future-present Homotopia chronicles a group of radical queer’s dedicated to exposing the trouble with gay marriage, dismantling the State, undoing Empire, while looking totally fierce. Woven into the story of Yoshi's adventures in love, resistance, and sex, is a critique of the crushing violence of homonormativity and its deadly perpetuation of US patriotism, conservative kinship structures and affective accumulation. Homotopia holds cinematic assumptions hostage through its motley assemblage of never-passing crew. Race, gender, ability and desire are reworked through an anti-colonial take of queer struggle creating a visual rhythm of melancholic utopianism that knows there may be no future but still hopes today is not their last. Love revolution, not State delusion, Homotopia.

Also showing: By Any Means Necessary (James Wentzy, 1994, 6 min.) is an experimental meditation on AIDS, loss, and cultural trauma. Maggots and Men (Oakie Treadwell, trailer). In the style of a Soviet Propaganda film Maggots and Men recounts the tragic events of the Kronstadt Uprising (Russia, 1921). http://www.maggotsandmen.com Ms. Magazine takes a shit in the ocean (PMS media) a 7 minute expose on the 2004 Ms. Magazine post election getaway on what we are calling a sweatship latrine.
