Offering unprecedented access, CHEMSEX is a brave and unflinching journey in to the dark underworld of modern, urban gay life.
In hidden basements, bedrooms and bars across London, CHEMSEX is a documentary that exposes frankly and intimately a dark side to modern gay life. Traversing an underworld of intravenous drug use and weekend-long sex parties, “Chemsex” tells the story of several men struggling to make it out of ‘the scene’ alive – and one health worker who has made it his mission to save them. While society looks the other way, this powerful and unflinching film uncovers a group of men battling with HIV, drug addiction and finding acceptance in a changing world.
Tickets for this showing are unreserved seating – seat choice is first come, first served, upon doors opening. Doors to the screening room will open around 10-15 minutes before the performance starts.
Where Are We Now? will be a summer festival like no other: a gathering of time-served trouble-makers, spoken word rebels, artistic mavericks and left-field music pioneers. We’ll be converging on the city of Hull to ask of today’s counter-culture the soaring, searching question with which David Bowie kissed us goodbye.
