Lucy Mukerjee, Senior Programmer at the Tribeca Film Festival

I’m a Senior Programmer at the Tribeca Film Festival, where I curate feature-length documentary and narrative films, with a focus on underrepresented voices. I’m a queer bi-racial activist and I firmly believe that film festivals have the power to change the cultural conversation, and a responsibility to reflect the rich array of identities that exist in the world around us.

……………..

There are myriad identities under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella, but often corporations, brands, and institutions presume that we all share the same experiences and as a result, their inclusion efforts feel superficial. Only when they do the work to understand the inequities that exist across the queer family will we achieve greater representation and inclusion for our community in the arts, in the media, and in everyday life.

El Centro Niemeyer comienza a adaptar su programación a la denominada nueva normalidad y lo hace con el V Festival de Cine LGTBI. Esta nueva edición, programada para desarrollarse presencialmente en el mes de abril, se ha visto sorprendida por la crisis sanitaria, lo que ha forzado una reinvención del festival y su traslado a Internet gracias a una alianza con la plataforma de vídeo bajo demanda Filmin. Esto posibilitará que sus contenidos sean accesibles desde cualquier punto de España.

Del 20 al 28 de junio Filmin acogerá los contenidos de esta quinta edición, la más diversa hasta la fecha en cuanto a su programación, con nueve películas durante nueve días que van desde la comedia romántica hasta el documental biográfico.

 

El Festival de Cine LGTBI contará con las siguientes películas:

  1. Temblores, de Jayro Bustamente. Guatemala, 2019.
  2. Marilyn, de Martín Rodríguez Redondo. Argentina, 2018.
  3. Vendrá la muerte y tendrá tus ojos, de José Luis Torres Leiva. Chile, 2019.
  4. Bixa Travety, de Claudia Priscilla y Kiko Goifman. Brasil, 2018.
  5. Lemebel, de Joanna Reposi Garibaldi. Chile, 2019.

In her memoir, HAMMER! Making Movies out of Sex and Life (The Feminist Press, 2010), Hammer shares stories of her rich and colorful life, the development of her feminist thinking and the joys of working against the grain.

 

HAMMER! is the first book by influential filmmaker Barbara Hammer, whose life and work have inspired a generation of queer, feminist, and avant-garde artists and filmmakers. The wild days of non-monogamy in the 1970s, the development of a queer aesthetic in the 1980s, the fight for visibility during the culture wars of the 1990s, and her search for meaning as she contemplates mortality in the 2000s—HAMMER! includes texts from these periods, new writings, and fully contextualized film stills to create a memoir as innovative and disarming as her work has always been.

The intimate memoir of an iconic lesbian filmmaker charting her sexual and artistic coming-of-age, HAMMER! was the winner for the 2010 Judy Grahn Award for Lesbian Nonfiction.
