SQIFF’s Helen Wright presents a screening-performance looking at the work of DIY queer filmmakers Krissy Mahan and Nakshatra Bagwe whilst joined by the filmmakers via the interwebs for a live conversation. Krissy Mahan and her alter ego Faggotgirl - based in New York - have been making movies using humour as a feminist tool for 25 years.
Mahan’s movies centre the social failures around accessibility, gender identity, mental health, immigration, and working class post-industrial cities.
Nakshatra Bagwe is a gay rights activist and filmmaker from Mumbai who started making zero budget films focused on homosexuality and queer community awareness at the age of 22. Both artists will discuss the ideas behind filmmaking with a DIY ethos. With thanks to Wotever DIY Film Festival.
The discussion will be typed live and appear on the cinema screen alongside being read out loud. Films are mostly in the English language with English language subtitles or captions.
