Queercore: How To Punk A Revolution

14 February - KASKcinema, Ghent
20:30 - €5 - Free for members

Yony Leyser’s documentary Queercore: How To Punk a Revolution traces the roots of queercore, exploring how a group of queer activists created their own scene by pretending it already existed, briefly partnering to the punk before becoming its own movement. Using archive footage and interviews with artists such as Bruce LaBruce, Silas Howard, Justin Vivian Bond and John Waters, Leyser portrays the movement and the implications of what the scene offered to the queer identity, which was ultimately about fighting the prevailing ideology and its structures.
