COMING TO A SCREEN NEAR YOU SOON
I’m delighted to announce that Somos Art House in Berlin will be exhibiting the poetic film collection Church & Other Dirty Words on the 14th December 2018. Followed by talks with myself, cinematographer Jayden Robinson and performers Charlie Knight, Danny Polaris and Joseph Connolly.
Taken from SomoS website:
“For the third edition of the Cinema Conversación LGBTQ* series of screenings/artist’s talks, taking place December 14th 2018, SomoS presents the cinematic poem Church & Other Dirty Words by Sian Williams: A queer-feminist take on adapting Brad Cohen’s queer poetry to the screen.
Cinema Conversación brings the audience in direct dialogue with artists and filmmakers, thus creating a platform where thoughts and experiences can be shared freely and where the usual separation between spectator and artist is lifted.
The program series deliberately focuses on LGBTQ* experiences and facilitates an ongoing discussion about feelings, desires, issues, goals, and social, political, and artistic positions of LGBTQ* individuals and communities. Besides the thematic focus, Cinema Conversación is also a platform to challenge and question the rigid boundaries of film and cinema, to expand on the idea of what the cinematic arts could mean, and to experiment with the wide range of genres and artistic practices involved in moving image-based productions.
The glorious Tayah Ettienne in my new film Lady Liberty (previously known as Precisionism).
Out early 2019.
