Queer Arts Festival - UnSettled
June 17-29, 2017
Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre, 181 Roundhouse Mews (Davie @ Pacific)

Queer Arts Festival 2017: UnSettled is curated by Two-Spirit and queer-identified Indigenous artists, and developed in collaboration with Indigenous arts organizations. The term “Two-Spirit” is used by many Indigenous people to describe their gender, sexual and spiritual identity—often inclusive of all Indigenous LGBTQ+—in reclaiming and restoring traditional concepts suppressed by colonial heteronormativity.

UnSettled presents work from a Two-Spirit perspective, exploring contemporary roles and experiences, as well providing a platform for innovation and experimentation at the intersection between the Indigenous and queer art milieux.

Funeral Parade of Roses
July 8,9,10,13,14, 2017
The Cinematheque, 1131 Howe St.

A delirious, taboo-obliterating masterpiece of queer cinema and the Japanese New Wave, the first feature-length film from Japanese avant-gardist Toshio Matsumoto (who died in April) was cited by fan Stanley Kubrick as a direct influence on his dystopian masterwork A Clockwork Orange! Lavishly praised but long unavailable in North America, it has been re-released in a stunning 4K restoration. Matsumoto’s exhilarating film, a loose adaptation of Oedipus Rex unapologetically set in Tokyo’s gay and drag-queen subculture, centres on Eddie (transgender actor Peter, of Kurosawa’s Ran), a cute, trans club hostess who’s bedding the boss (Yoshio Tsuchiya, also a Kurosawa player) while dethroning the club’s reigning queen...Ticket: $11.00 + ($3 annual membership required)
