Latinx Countercultures: Screenings, Music & More
Earlier this year, we visited and took part in artistic communities in Latin America, exchanging work and ideas. There, we saw films embodying the same countercultural spirit that we find so empowering on this side of the world. Latinx Countercultures is our way of bringing those visions of dissent – those allies from across the ocean – back home.
This first edition centers on liminal spaces of dreams, identity, and non-conformist sexuality/gender expression. Join us at Het Kløkhuis Amsterdam – a currently squatted social center and living space run by the Kinderen van Mokum collective, who repeatedly make their voice heard in the struggle for housing justice and alternative culture.
🎬 Inferninho. 2018. Brazil. Dir. Parente, Diógenes. 82’.
The story of a run-down queer bar and its eccentric employees and regulars. While the owner dreams of escaping, she falls in love with a handsome sailor who arrives dreaming of finding a home. In the meantime, shady project developers try to seize the property to build a giant parking lot. It's a touching, surrealistic tale about dreams, love, identity and the importance of having a local bar where you feel at home. It premiered at IFFR 2018.
🏩 Motels/Hotels. 2019. Brazil. Dir. Marian van Bodegraven. Loop.
A video installation adapted from the artist's book of the same name, currently being shown at the Architecture Biennale in São Paulo. In Motels/Hotels, a narrator meanders through love motels in downtown São Paulo. Reacting and interacting with these intimate places, the narrator is confronted with multiple sides of herself in a simultaneous process of frustration and liberation.
