A Beginner’s Guide to Growing Up Queer and Invisible

Debasmita Das


USA / 3 mins
The Beginner’s Guide to Growing Up Queer and Invisible is an animated comic series that attempts to delve into the experience of a young queer girl growing up in a predominantly heterosexual world in which any alternate sexual or romantic preference is neither found in the society nor represented in the media available to her. I have used the form of an animated comic because straight privilege plays out in the most regular aspects of our lives, one of them being the media, we are surrounded by and I have tried to bring out the difficulties of growing up queer by unpacking the differences in everyday or commonplace situations for someone who is queer versus someone who is not. The media shapes our understanding of the world and most often reflects the hetero-normativity of society. And when it does so, it creates an invisibility of sexual and romantic minorities. This animation seeks to understand how this reality affects a queer child's understanding of the world and herself.

Blending documentary and fiction and switching between English and French subtitles, the video examines and expands upon parallel events in their lives, wherein each traveled across Canada to Vancouver and had formative (homo)sexual experiences at separate moments in time: the father as an 18-year-old traveling in the mid-60s and the son (filmmaker, Vincent Chevalier) as a young teen and then adult in the mid-90s and 2000s. Ultimately, À Vancouver explores individual and cultural histories as a story of what will have been.

A meditation on the biology of sex and gender. Getting up close and personal with the hormones that make us and change us from the cellular level to the experiential.


Raquel Marques; Maria Zafra


Spain / 60 mins / Documentary
There are changes to our bodies that we desire and have control over; while there are others that come suddenly, unexpectedly, and even brutally. They remind us that life is not always ours to control. After surviving breast cancer, Ainhoa takes a decision to reconstruct her body with a tattoo. A process through which she seeks to empower herself in her new trans body. Arreta focuses on the body and the changes it goes through, where illness and death are another part of life. “Arreta means attention and awareness”, says Ainhoa. Attention to what? Perhaps that life will never stop surprising us with the most seemingly trivial of things…the passing of time.

Bereits mit 2 äußerten sie, dass ihr körperliches Geschlecht nicht stimmt. Schon lange vor der Pubertät ist bei Kindern ein Sinn für ihre eigene Geschlechtsidentität vorhanden. Sophia, 6, und Nuka, 13, sind gute Bespiele dafür. Bereits mit 2 Jahren machten sie deutlich, dass sie sich anders fühlten als es ihr Äußeres von Geburt an vorgab. Glücklicherweise nahmen ihre Eltern die Gefühle und Wünsche ihrer Kinder ernst. Sie ermöglichten ihnen, bereits in jungen Jahren so zu leben, wie sie sich empfinden. Und auch die Schulen spielten dabei mit. Die Doku versucht zu erörtern, was Familien, Umfeld, Pädagogik und die Gesellschaft generell zu einem richtigen Umgang mit Trans-Kindern beitragen können. So kommen nicht nur Sophie und Nuka mit ihren Eltern zu Wort, sondern auch ihre Lehrer, eine Endokrinologin und eine Therapeutin.

Simultaneously, the body is on view yet it is also the tool for manipulating the clothing and environment - the subjective/objective, personal/public is continually emphasized and revealed.

Ma Chérie

Sunny Mind Production


France / 6 mins
“Ma Chérie” is a short film depicting moments in the life of a trans woman seen through the eyes of a straight, cisgender man. He speaks to the audience about his transgender girlfriend, providing a glimpse into their relationship. In the film, I play the role of the transgender girlfriend. It was a penetrating experience for me, especially since I am myself a straight transgender woman. The film reveals a tender male gaze directed at transgender womanhood, much like that of the men who have loved me, the men who love me. Yet, I know too well that this male gaze is often laden with anguish and grief, brutal violence and murder, rejection and humiliation; from the cisgender male aggressor towards his transgender female victim. Sadly, in the regime of fragile masculinity, with every man there are misgivings. Is he ashamed of being seen with me? Does his attraction to me trigger insecurities about his manhood? I see those who are ashamed, and I sense those who are insecure. They do not see, perhaps, that they dehumanize me. They exorcise my soul and expose me to violence and desecration.

Z uplywem czasu, kosztem ogromnych zmagan, postawy rodziców ewoluuja. Relacje ulegaja przewartosciowaniu, cierpienie zdaje sie miec inne zródlo niz psychoseksualna orientacja dziecka. Tytulowe „Moje jest inne” zostaje opatrzone gorzkim znakiem zapytania. Smiale rozwiazania w warstwie formalnej podkreslaja poczucie osaczenia i wyizolowania. Z przejmujacej narracji wylania sie przemiana w postrzeganiu homoseksualnosci, jaka dokonala sie w polskiej swiadomosci zbiorowej na przestrzeni ostatnich kilku dekad.

“Not Yet Over” positions current feminism in its relation to medical and social reproduction. Four women are set on stage: the one wants an abortion, the next, artificial insemination, the other wants to earn money as a surrogate mother. The fourth woman, a self-named “techno feminist” propagates the benefit of medical reproduction. Which side are we on? The case is clear: the economical question has to be addressed from a feminist point of view.

Por No

Andrés Rangel


Costa Rica / 3 mins
'Por no' is an experimental short film that strives to problematize sexual miscommunication, which derives from the universal topic of sex, being treated as something that needs to be spoken about eloquently, because when one doesn't speak about doubts, concerns, propositions, suggestions, ideas, fantasies and desires... It simply creates a taboo which will continue to grow, stemming from sexism and ignorance. 'Por no' is an aesthetic and conceptual experience, supported by aspects from Postporn and NeoCamp philosophies, and attempts to incite to a more creative (auto)exploration, and to better orgasms.

Recalling early structuralist works by Hollis Frampton and Martha Rosler, SEMIOTICS OF SAB displays the grammatology of queer Asian American masculinity through conflicting lexicons of race, representation, and selfhood.

In the midst of a dance that sounds and a music that moves, the earth trembles between manifestation and concealment, between search and encounter.

In Take Me to Church, electronic cyberspace connects a sadomasochist experience with Christian practice: a man exploring voluntary kidnapping becomes confused between fear and sexual pleasure. He realizes that his sexual desire is a kind of death and the ceremony is sacred. For George Bataille, religious sensibility always links desire closely with terror, intense pleasure and anguish. We see an energy in the story which, when harnessed to a devotion to something or someone, gives the devotee, the submissive, the masochist, the martyr, an ability to do something special, to step outside the limitations of the human.

You may recognize them on the streets where, inspired by radical ideas, they seek an identity. They are rebelling against ethnic Hungarians, against homosexuals against immigrants -- whenever they are not rebelling against each other.

Too Wide

Moyin Saka

This deceptively simple film has many layers. Cleverly shot through a surveillance camera, it references the feelings of being under constant social scrutiny that many trans people and cis women feel. Travis Alabanza demands the right of freedom from the gender binary through spoken word narration. I loved this film – how many times have we dressed to go out and faced the world feeling good, feeling sharp, on a high, to then step out into the street and be ridiculed or asked to defend our choice of expression?
