IDAHOT 2022: documentary screening 'Pride is Protest!'
In 2019, Belgian documentary film makers Marieke Dermul and Filip Tielens travelled to New York to attend the biggest Pride ever, 50 years after the Stonewall uprising. In their documentary ‘Pride is Protest!’, they ask the question: what are LGBTQ people fighting for today? In New York, where the global rainbow movement started, they experienced the activist roots of Pride. As many interviewees responded: Pride should not only be a parade, but also a protest – like in the early days. In the documentary, lesbian, gay, transgender people and queer people of colour testify about discrimination – even within the LGBTIQ+ community – but also show their enormous strength and creative protest. The riot goes on!
Join us on Wednesday 25 May for a screening of the documentary “Pride is Protest!”, followed by reflections on the importance and relevance of the Pride movement in South Africa in a panel discussion and through poetry performances by South African and Swedish poets.
Organised by Embassy of Belgium in Pretoria, Embassy of Sweden in Pretoria and the Delegation of Flanders, in partnership with Hear My Voice.
Location: Embassy of Belgium, 275 Pomona Street, Muckleneuk, Pretoria.
