kino OPEN AIR // Orlando // Theme 2: Queer Film
Mi • 14.08.19 • 21:15 – 23:00 • KINO
Yellow Carpet Film Nights will be a place to appreciate the wonderful art of film. Every month we will explore a different theme that shines a light on the representation of social topics such as women, queer, gender and ethnic diversity.
Our second theme is QUEER FILM. Over the month of August we will be screening four films that show how the LGBTQI community have been represented over the generations and genres of cinema.
Have you ever thought about how the LGBTQI community have been portrayed in films?
Do you think they have been portrayed fairly?
Young nobleman Orlando (played by the incredible Tilda Swinton) is ordered by Queen Elizabeth I to stay young and youthful forever, and he does just that. This elegant and beautiful film, directed by Sally Potter, follows Orlando’s life over several centuries in his pursuit of love, poetry and the meaning of life. To discover all of this, Orlando must change genders along the way.
