Before HD, 4:3 was standard TV ratio. Growing up queer in the 1990s, under Section 28 and in a small northern town, it was Amy’s ratio – a limited square portal into a queer education.
From Willow and Tara in Buffy to Ellen (coming out) on Oprah, TV’s few queer characters were sought out by a young Amy – to be watched and studied.
In 4:3, Amy explores re-performance as a form of remembering TV’s naff, but precious moments. Accompanied by a one-off online workshop exploring memory, queer idols and representation.
4:3 will be available to watch for free here from Thursday 29 October. You also have the opportunity to join a one-off online creative workshop exploring memory, queer idols and representation taking part on Tuesday 3 November.
4:3 is part of Queer Company, an arts project with young people in St Helens, produced by Heart of Glass with St Helens Council’s Arts in Libraries Programme (Cultural Hubs).
