Gaze: International LGBT+ Film Festival



GAZE AT THE COMPLEX 04-15 OCTOBER


SPECIAL EVENT:

Thursday 6th October, 7pm:

In conversation with Osaro Azams Over 2 weeks as part of Gaze International LGBT+ Film Festival The Complex is proud to showcase a series of powerfully immersive short films on struggle and empowerment in the modern world.


The first series titled Terrain is taking place this week in The Complex Gallery, 4-8th October. This series of short films takes the audience on a journey through the daily conflicts and prejudices both internal and external that are felt by members of our queer communities.


Starting with the film “Eggshells” by Venus Patel, we are taken on a trip around Dublin, as our protagonist guides us through their personal odyssey as they face their fears and take back control of their life and the tools once used to oppress them.


Using a mixture of different settings, colours and dance styles the viewer in transported into our heroes world as we learn to conquer our own bigotry and preconceptions and embrace our true selves.


Other highlights from the exhibition include “Obsidian Black” by Osaro Azams. A short film exploring African and Celtic pegan traditions in Ireland, how they interact and complement each other. The film highlights traditional music and explores our relationship with nature and our unique landscape.


For a more personal experience the exhibition also has a series of short films presented on a smaller screen highlighting the intimacy, love, as well as hardships faced by LGBT persons around the world.


Combined, these series of films will leave visitors with both an intimate and collective experience that will both move and inspire them for a long time to come.


Programmed by Greg Thorpe and Caoimhe Lavelle
