IQMF 2017: Representing Lgbtiq Refugees + Q&A

 

Who gets to speak for whom? Popular culture representations are susceptible to constructing the refugee subject solely from a Western gaze. Issues of stripping the individual of agency, resulting in victimization, exoticization and eroticization, are discussed through four short films and a debate.


Wie spreekt voor wie? De vluchtelingenproblematiek wordt in populaire cultuur vaak enkel vanuit een Westers standpunt weergegeven. Verlies van zelfbeschikking met als gevolg daarvan slachtofferschap, exotisme en seksualisering worden aan de hand van vier korte films en een debat besproken.

The short film screening includes the films:

Huisje Boompje Beestje - de film (dir. Tom Cas, Koen Leerink)
Scar Tissue Film (dir. Nish Gera)
SKAI BLUE (dir. Guido Verelst)
Y (dir. Gina Wenzel)

The directors Guido Verelst and Nish Gera, who was a participant in last year's IQMF Academy, will be present for a Q&A.
