Event Type Screening
Organizer/Author
In these times of never ending wars, fence post lynchings, and the continuing HIV/AIDS genocide; violence and its relationship to queerness seems to ask for urgent attention. From resisting war through an anarchist critiqueof the State to new reading of the Holocaust and AIDS genocide, the Queer/ Violence program provokes, instigates and explores queer (un)doing.

The screening is comprised of the Maggots and
Men (2006 Oakie Tredwell) trailer, By Any Means Necessary (1994 James Wentzy),Mentalitet (2001 Stefan Orlandic Stojanovski) and Homotopia(2006 Chris Vargas, Eric
Stanley). Following the screening time will be allotted for questions and conversation around both the films as well as larger question of, HIV/AIDS gay marriage, transliberation
and/or anything else.

About 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.
