195 Lewis (15*) + Shorts + Panel discussion

Part of Fringe! Queer Film and Arts Fest season

Film still from 195 Lewis

From the creators of An Oversimplification of Her Beauty and Revival: Women and the Word, this web series sees charming, relatable characters make their way in the working world.

Exploring love, polyamory, friendship and identity, against a sexy, modern soundtrack of Brooklyn’s own queer music scene, 195 Lewis engages with and reflects our London scenes with its hilariously self-referential art talk, playful explorations of gender and sex, and a genius, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Bette Porter reference.

You’ll be dying to know what happens next after the first season of your new favourite show.

+Amelia and Charlie
Amelia and Charley, two young women of color in the early stages of their relationship, must go up against a man who wants to exploit Charley's telekinetic abilities.

+We Love Moses
When Ella was twelve, she had her first fight. And when she was twelve, she discovered sex. Now eighteen, Ella reflects on how her obsession with her older brother Michael's best friend Moses left her with a secret she still carries.

+ Panel discussion: Representing Ourselves 
People of colour and QTPOC have historically been under-represented on screen, fact. This panel asks a panel of queer people of colour working in film what inspired them to get into filmmaking, what positive representation looks like, as well as how queer people of colour in London are taking up space both behind and in front of the lens in exciting new ways.

Chaired by Tara Brown (Wotever Film Festival) with panelists Dionne Edwards (filmmaker), Harley Yeung Kurylowski (filmmaker & curator kuntinuum) and Amrou Al-Kadhi (filmmaker & performer).
