— Bricks
After all, what's more queer than being an outsider?
price: Headfirst Tickets


DURATION: 75 minutes,
START TIME: 15:50, followed with a Q+A with the director of Q: Ghostly Remote Effect

Misfits and Outcasts comprises four films we love and knew we had to include, but which did not fit neatly into any of our other themes and programmes. After all, what's more queer than being an outsider?

D: Marcus Hanisch
In a dreamy techno-future, one humanoid robot begins to learn about the world while their scientist handler tries to keep them on task. She soon learns that they might have more in common than she initially thought.

D: Lucie Rachel & Chrissie Hyde
Factory Talk is an intergenerational conversation about identity, sexuality and masculinity in a rural factory. Through the clanging of metal they make small talk, but as the gripes and grumbles testify to better times, the questions rising on the factory floor are of more than just nostalgia.

D: Jamie Dispirito
Two men think they've just meeting for a one night stand, but when some medication is left out by mistake it prompts a much deeper conversation than either were expecting.

D: Thùy Nguyễn
For Mít, a gender fluid person, a life between two worlds is nothing new. Balancing their family life and romantic relationships, as well as their Vietnamese heritage, Mít has to search for the connection between identities believed to be incompatible.
