INFRARED V: New Visions from the Queer Avant Garde

Curated by Malic Amalya. From the depths of the underground come new works that defy standards of narrative cinema and normative desire. Embracing radical politics and documenting the freaky beauty of queer culture, these shorts range from video performance to stunning 16mm celluloid, from campy debauchery to sensual studies in light and texture.
