Alex is a 16-year-old misfit and high school dropout. In a final attempt to set Alex straight, her adoptive mother signs her up for an internship at a farm where Alex meets thirty-something Nina, a riding instructor who is taking a break from her partner Christine and their life in the city. Although Alex initially hates being stuck on the farm, she gradually connects with the horses. When upper-class Kathy arrives for a vacation, Alex dislikes her immediately.

ANTONIA’S LINE (ANTONIA) by Marleen Gorris | Netherlands, Belgium, France, UK, 1995 | fiction 102 min | Dutch with German subtitles

EN: A strong-willed Dutch woman recalls her life in this uplifting picture. Antonia is an elderly woman who wakes up one morning and realizes that this is the last day of her life. She begins to tell her story in flashbacks, beginning with her return to the family farm after World War II with her daughter, Danielle. For the next fifty years, a variety of colorful characters come and go on the farm. Danielle becomes a painter, and decides she wants a child but no husband, so Antonia arranges the proper donation. Danielle gives birth to Therese, who later has her own child, Sarah, also without a husband. Antonia and her descendants come to symbolize the freedom of independent females, with little need for men in their lives.

FR: A 90 ans, allongée sur son lit, Antonia se souvient du jour où, peu après la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, elle est revenue dans son village natal, au cœur de la campagne hollandaise. Très vite, son tempérament et celui de ses filles troublent la tranquillité des paysans du cru. La ferme d’Antonia devient un refuge pour les originaux et les vagabonds de passage. Malgré l’animosité, les préjugés et les rancœurs de certains, Antonia et ses filles parviendront à faire triompher leur amour de la vie tout en préservant leur indépendance.

FtWTF – FEMALE TO WHAT THE FUCK

NEXT SCREENING ON NOVEMBER 6TH at ROTONDES, 19h – COME AND BRING YOUR FRIENDS!

 

FtWTF – FEMALE TO WHAT THE FUCK by Cordula Thym and Katharina Lampert | Austria 2015 | documentary 92 min | German with English Subtitles

The documentary FtWTF is a precise encounter with the theme of gender transgression, whereby the gender border is crossed in the same direction each time: from a specific starting point (female/woman) to a temporarily open end point („what the fuck“). The filmmakers portray six people who for different reasons take on a transgender identity and live it out in different and changing ways.
In talks that are serious yet nonetheless not anxious, which draw us in, the protagonists confront the conditions, consequences, and sometimes also bizarre circumstances of their decision. The way they do so is disarmingly open and often humorous, in a manner that is amazing to see. Due to the gorgeous images, deep insights into gender construction and sexuality are communicated with ease; and the protagonists‘ obvious trust in the film project can be attributed to the directors‘ impressive expertise.

queerloox is organizing 2 great, fabuleous and imazing movie nights at Gaymat

 

JULY 10TH

rebels on pointe

by Bobbi Jo Hart, USA 2016, 92 min, English

rebels

Exploring universal themes of identity, dreams, family, loss and love, Rebels on Pointe is the first-ever feature documentary celebrating the world famous Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. The all male, comic ballet company was founded over 40 years ago on the heels of New York’s Stonewall riots and and has a diverse cult following around the world. The film juxtaposes behind-the-scenes access, rich archives and history, intimate character-driven stories, and amazing dance performances shot in North America, Europe and Japan. Rebels on Pointe is a creative blend of gender, diversity, passion and purpose. A story which ultimately proves that a ballerina is not only a woman dancing — but an act of rebellion in a tutu.

JULY 12TH

special short night: LIQUID

 

If only for a moment (Al was het maar voor even), by Sophie Kupershoek, Belgien 2017, 30 min

In a deserted yet wild and beautiful landscape Astrid, a young artist, works on a piece of land-art. Days pass by and her loneliness becomes stifling, until one day she meets the geologist Emily. Quickly they form a deep connection. Far away from the real world they can fantasize, dream and philosophize carelessly; their lives seem temporarily idyllic.

Hard Lines, by oellinger/rainer with Stefan Wirnsperger, Österreich 2015, 2 min

Hard Lines is a porn movie that satisfies feminist, queer and heterosexual desires without repeating common clichés while being fair trade – without underpaid protagonists with huge breasts, french manicure and brazilian waxing.

Etage X, by Francy Fabritz, Deutschland 2016, 14min

Eine zufällige Begegnung im Aufzug eines Einkaufszentrums bringt zwei ältere Frauen an ihre Grenzen und zwingt sie zum Improvisieren, als der Aufzug stecken bleibt.

Feedback (Larsen), by Margot Gallimard, Frankreich 2017, 30 min

Maude and Clothilde have been together for several years, when Maude suddenly loses her hearing. Cut off from the world, she tries to get closer to Clothilde who constantly avoids her. It’s a journey towards the other.

We are all made of stars, by Eduardo Menz, Kanada 2016, 6 min

From the comical, non-violent, slightly erotic to the downright inexplicable, a short film about bruises.

Blind Sex, by Sarah Santamaria-Mertnes, Frankreich 2017, 30min

At the end of the summer holiday, Louise, blind since birth, is smothered between her mother and her sister. After getting lost in the forest, a chance encounter on a naturist campsite will upset her habits.
