Being Ruby Rich: A Room of Our Own Shorts programme (18*)+ Panel discussion


23 June 2017
Cinema 2
Judith/Jack Halberstam’s ‘queer subjects’ live outside the logic of capital accumulation, awake during the hours when others sleep in the spaces (physical, metaphysical, economic) that have been abandoned. This short film programme travels the paralleling histories and contemporary moment in the UK and US to explore the precarity of intersectional queer feminist subject, space and community. 

+ panel discussion with Laura Hudson (artist, curator, lapsed filmmaker); Ben Walters (writer, campaigner), Liv Wynter (Sisters Uncut; WHEREISANAMENDIETA), and chaired by Claire Kurylowski (kuntinuum).
