Exploding Lineage!: Queer of Color Histories in Experimental Media
October 11, 2013
Featuring innovative work by a diverse group of media artists, Exploding Lineage explores the complexities of identity construction in African, Asian, and Latino queer diasporas. Curated for the 25th MIX NYC queer experimental film festival, the program includes KB Boyce’s Bulldagger Women and Sissy Men, a tribute to queer artists of the Harlem Renaissance, and Celeste Chan’s Bloodlines, a lyrical recognition of Chinese immigrants detained on Angel Island due to the Chinese Exclusion Act. These selections question conventions, bringing to light queer contributions to the American past while asserting a vibrant existence in the present. Filmmakers and curators KB Boyce and Celeste Chan, of Queer Rebel Productions, are scheduled to be present. This event is part of the Underground Film Series. (2K DCP. 80 min. Not Rated.)
The Exploding Lineage!: Queer of Color Histories in Experimental Media event is co-sponsored by the Black Film Center/Archive, Bloomington PRIDE, Center for the Study of Global Change, Department of African American and African Diapsora Studies, Department of American Studies, Department of Communication and Culture, Department of Gender Studies, East Asian Studies Center, Film and Media Studies program, and GLBT Student Support Services.
