Trans Creative at the Movies

Trans Creative at the Movies 05Nov

Homotopia x Trans Creative

Following its British Film Institute debut we bring you Trans Creative at the movies. Taking a look at mainstream cinema from a trans perspective, the panel is –

Tom of Tottenham
Krishna Istha
Kate O’Donnell
Laura Bridgeman
Lucia Blayke
and Homotopia Festival artist-in-residence Fox Fisher

Together, they will be transing up cinema history by revisiting films from their past. Reclaiming some space in the cis-led cinematic history, you’ll never see these movie classics the same again.
