GAZE LGBT Film Fest – Dublin Programmed in “Making and Unmaking”
Dir. Marcus Gambrill/ Ireland / 2016 / 3m
Masc.ing uses a music video format, drawing from 90s MTV aesthetics as well as everyday domestic objects that can be perceived as queer, to explore a transition from boy to man.
Dir. Alejandro Plumb/ Plurinational State of Bolivia / 2022 / 9m
Set in the Andean nation of Bolivia, Angelo is about a shoeshine boy who uses the power of his imagination to escape the harsh reality of life on the street.
DIRECTOR’S SPOTLIGHT: A small unique masterpiece melding documentary footage with a stylised narrative, stunning colour and visual tableaux. GT.
A body is a body is a body
Dir. Cat and Éiméar McClay/ Ireland / 2021 / 12m
Language folds and falls in on itself in this new video work by artist duo Cat and Éiméar McClay. Animated 3D tableaus of Catholic paraphernalia and strikes of elemental weather accompany the words. Together, they enact the historically fraught relationship between queerness and the Catholic church.
Call me Jonathan
Dir. B´rbara Lago/ Argentina / 2021 / 8m
After finding video material of her childhood, the director reprogrammes her mythology as an infant and reflects on her body traversed by affections, fictions and years.
From a Spaceless Within
Dir. Matthew LaPaglia/ USA / 2021 / 20m
Compositing past and future, truth and fiction, From a Spaceless Within approaches the construction and dematerialization of the artist while asking where our intentions take root when we attempt to create anything at all.
a story that doesn’t have to do with me
Dir. Kymberly McDaniel/ USA / 2021
As I seek to connect with my partner about their research in bioarchaeology, a conversation emerges about survival and what is left behind after death.
My Crazy Boxers
Dir. Krissy Mahan/ USA / 2019 / 9m
Suicidal, or just a working class queer caught in the wrong underpants? Pixellated fragments slowly materialise in this powerful and distressing video based on actual meetings with hospital staff while in a psychiatric hospital system.
One Magenta Afternoon
Dir. Vernon Jordan, III/ USA / 2021 / 8m
The lesson is love: when Pop Pop and his grandson, Les, play jazz, they summon six queer spirits and tumble through their memories.
Dir. Ryan Harman, Craig Hunter/ USA / 2021 / 8m
Two boyfriends wander beaches near New York City, finding shade under crude shelters they build with sheets, rubber bands, and materials (like driftwood) scavenged from the shore.
