This program approaches the historical role of Queer cultural production in the formation of our senses of self. In a time when feelings are facts and there is a broader questioning of the primacy of First-Person Narrative Truth, we take this opportunity for a post-Pride breather to make meaning of our queer realities. This program is made up of a selection of 16mm film from the CFMDC collection that speak not only to the times in which they were produced but also to the complex political landscape we find ourselves in now.
