Summary

Queerama

Daisy Asquith | UK | 2017 | 77 mins | Cert 15 | Documentary

Mining the jewels of the BFI archive, Queerama tells the story of an extraordinary century of gay experiences. Directed by Daisy Asquith with a soundtrack by Alison Goldfrapp, Hercules & Love Affair and John Grant, the film takes us into the relationships, desires, fears and expressions of gay men and women in the 20th century – a century of incredible change.

“Daisy Asquith’s labour of love is both a heartening celebration of progress and a cautionary reminder of all the broken lives and lonely hearts trampled along the way.” – Allen Hunter, Screen International

Queerama is preceeded by:

The Colour Of His Hair

Sam Ashby | UK | 2017 | 22 mins | Cert 18 | Documentary

Based on an unrealised film script written in 1964 for The Homosexual Law Reform Society, a British organisation that campaigned for the decriminalisation of homosexual relations between men, The Colour of His Hair merges drama and documentary into an impressionistic meditation on queer life under the law.
