McQueen McQueen

McQueen; Ian Bonhôte, Peter Ettedgui, versions: CS : eng

The story of Alexander McQueen is a modern, gothic-tinged fairytale about an ordinary working-class boy from East London who caged his demons and became an international star of fashion design. The film follows the extraordinary journey of one of the most distinctive artists of our millennium, who at the age of 27 took the helm of Givenchy and followed by founding his own successful fashion house. McQueen showcases the raw beauty and fearlessness of its subject’s original designs, which shocked the public and fascinated an endless list of celebrities, from Lady Gaga to Sarah Jessica Parker, while it also unveils the inner world of the inspiring yet tortured psyche of this radical genius. Through interviews with his closest colleagues, friends, family and the couturier himself, the film reveals his previously undisclosed personal traumas, which deeply influenced his work and mostly likely contributed to his life’s premature end.

Transfokácia po zatienení | Transfokácia po zatienení Pavlína Fichta Čierna, 2018, Slovensko, 26 min. Transfokácia po zatienení (2018) je video Pavlíny Fichta Čiernej, ktoré upozorňuje na situáciu transrodových osôb. Snaží sa empaticky sprostredkovať hlas a individuálny príbeh človeka, ktorého väčšinová spoločnosť nechápe, odsudzuje, alebo dokonca označuje za chorého. Romina Kollárik vo svojom videoportréte pomenúva prístup spoločnosti, v ktorej prevláda nevedomosť, neznalosť transrodovej problematiky spojená s predsudkami a odmietaním inakosti. Video je zároveň výpoveďou o hľadaní vlastnej identity, sebaprijatí, o vyrovnaní sa s nepochopením a odmietaním spoločnosti i blízkeho okolia cez angažovaný a aktívny občiansky postoj, kolektívne prežívanie a cez organizovanie pomoci druhým. Transfokácia po zatienení je prvým dielom v rámci väčšej tematicky orientovanej série, na ktorej autorka aktuálne pracuje. MATHIAS | MATHIAS Clara Stern, 2017, Rakúsko, 30 min. Mathias nastupuje do novej práce a pokúša sa začať odznova. Minulosť si ho však nájde v podobe zvedavého spolužiaka, ktorý si nového kolegu pamätá z čias, ku ktorým sa Mathias nechce vracať. Vidina lepších zajtrajškov je ale stále v nedohľadne a vstup do nového života možno nebude taký jednoduchý ako dúfal. Rodinný album | The Family Album Anthony Chapman, 2019, USA, 19 min. Mladá južanská opatrovateľka si vytvorí výnimočné puto so svojím prvým pacientom – transmužom, ktorému zostáva pár mesiacov života. Rifle | Denim Daryen Ru, Lucas McGowen, 2019, USA, 15 min. V jeden obyčajný deň v škole McKaylu pomstychtivá spolužiačka odfotí pri používaní dievčenského záchoda, a tým všetkým ukáže, že McKayla je transrodový človek. Spolužiaci sú pobúrení a štátne orgány ju označia sa sexuálnu delikventku. Miller a syn | Miller & Son Anoop Lokkur, 2019, Austrália, 7 min.

Boy Boy

Boy; Auraeus Solito, versions: SS : fil

A boy enters a gay nightclub one lazy Sunday night. The nightclub is basically empty. The boy is a newbie to these affairs, unaware of the codes of the trade inside the dimly lit halls of the club. Another love song sets the mood as eighteen-year-old Aries enters the stage. „Macho dancer films“ named after Lino Brocka's Macho Dancer (1988), constitute a specific genre within the LGBTQIA+ cinema of the Philippines. Solito's Boy is an ideal representative of the genre, as it maintains the unhindered erotic possibilities of gazing at naked bodies in the safety and privacy of a darkened cinema, without implicating any guilt. The film had to be withdrawn from the Singapore Intl. Film Festival 2009, because the Singapore Censor Board concluded that it “normalize[s] homosexuality and that the movie romanticizes sex between men." Show more

Nureyev Nureyev

Nureyev; Jacqui Morris, David Morris, versions: SS : eng

To plunge into this saga, and to see what it was that made Rudolf Nureyev onstage such a furious and transporting poet-of-the-body, is to be at once moved and awed. The directors of Nureyev, Jacqui Morris and David Morris, present a great deal of dance footage that has never been seen before, and it’s a thrill to behold; nothing tells Nureyev’s story half as well as simply staring at him in his prime (in pieces choreographed by Martha Graham, Paul Taylor, and Murray Louis, among others, as well as older footage from his Russian days). The film has been made with straight-up chronological skill, but there’s a minor innovation to Nureyev, and it works beautifully. It’s structured as a talking-head documentary, with the voices of friends, associates, and biographers mixed into the narrative. But though each speaker is named on screen, we don’t see any of them speaking; their words, some culled from old interview tapes, become pure narration. Not so much timely as eternal.

Grâce à Dieu Grâce à Dieu

Grâce à Dieu ; François Ozon, versions: SS : fra

The poignant story of the archdiocese of Lyon, France, where Father Bernard Preynat has over 70 documented cases of sexual abuse on his conscience, dating to the early 1980s. The film is an uncompromising, pointed critique not only of the priest himself, but of other prominent leaders of the Catholic Church in France. The explosive subject matter presents multiple cases of men who were abused as boys and, years later, have mustered the courage to give their shocking testimonies. “I came across the La Parole Libérée website by chance and was extremely touched by several of the victim’s testimonies, including that of Alexandre, a devout Catholic who fought for two years in order to gain recognition as a victim and to ensure that the priest who abused him, and who is still alive, would no longer be in contact with children. The film focuses more on the human aspect of the events. The film’s real topic is the freedom of speech, and the re-percussions of the victims' freedom of speech.” (François Ozon) Source: Art Film Fest 2019 Show more

Matthias et Maxime ; Xavier Dolan, versions: CS : fra

Matthias a Maxime sú už od detstva nerozlučnými kamarátmi. Keď sú však počas natáčania študentského filmu vyzvaní, aby sa pobozkali pred kamerou, všetko sa náhle zmení. Zdanlivo nenarušiteľné puto je zneistené pochybnosťami, aké city k sebe v skutočnosti prechovávajú. Xavier Dolan je opäť tu, tentoraz s príbehom o dvoch od detstva nerozlučných kamarátov Matthiasa a Maxima. Keď sa pri natáčaní študentského filmu pobozkajú, ako to od nich žiada scenár, spustí sa reťazec udalostí vedúci k množstvu otázok, spochybňovaniu vlastnej sexuality a prehodnocovaniu vzájomných citov. Xavier Dolan ubral z hravosti a bezstarostnosti zlomených sŕdc, ktorými oplývali Imaginárne lásky, dynamiky filmov Mami! či Laurence Anyways a vstúpil do vôd komornej sociálne ladenej drámy o jednej obyčajnej potláčanej láske a obyčajnom živote tridsiatnika, syna alkoholičky.

JT LeRoy JT LeRoy

JT LeRoy; Justin Kelly, versions: SS : eng

At the turn of the 21st century, a young man began writing books about his problematic coming of age, attracting worldwide attention. His name was JT LeRoy. And in January 2006, The New York Times reported that he didn’t exist. J. T. LeRoy is the authentic story of the literary hoax of a generation. But it is also an intimate portrait of two women who, for six years, led a bizarre double life: nearly 40-year-old author/musician Laura Albert, and her sister-in-law, college student Savannah Knoop. Together they invented the JT’s persona and presented him in public, where he gained recognition among celebrities, artists, fans and the media. This film adaptation of the book Girl Boy Girl: How I Became JT LeRoy is above all an acting tour de force from Laura Dern, as the impulsive, irresistibly manic Laura, and Kristen Stewart, as a frustrated young woman and an androgynous, standoffish pseudo-literary celebrity.

But when she learns that Conny has attempted suicide, her secrets threaten to reveal themselves. As she tries to do all she can for her sister without putting her painstakingly built career in jeopardy, Lola herself begins to lose what’s left of her own sanity. Show more
