Queerious invites you to get curious and explore a multitude of desires on screen in ways all too rarely seen in cinema. Through stories of sexual awakenings and re-awakenings, and queer love through a feminist lens, this curated season from Birds’ Eye View aims to help you to question, learn and enjoy your sexual selves. Each film is a collaboratively made DIY discovery in its own way, freed from the restrictions of mainstream filmmaking and ‘queerious’ in its making.
They’ll be touring the Queerious programme in cinemas across the UK. Each programme will be accompanied by curated live/participatory activities in select venues to allow audiences to explore the Queerious themes further. They’re also partnering with BFI Player to bring to you a Queerious selection available to stream online now - an exciting taste of what’s to come in their in-cinema programme this July.
Films will include a rare chance to see The Gold Diggers by Sally Potter (UK, 1983), in collaboration with Club Des Femmes, I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing by Patricia Rozema (Canada, 1987), and Fire by Deepa Mehta (India, 1996) on the big screen, and a first chance to catch previews of Passion by Maja Borg (Sweden/Spain, 2021) with short films and activities to be announced.
