UNDER THE RADAR

Queer Cinema by Under-Represented People of Colour from Around the World 

Under the Radar is a unique initiative highlighting the struggles and triumphs of a population historically suppressed, disenfranchised, and often overlooked by mainstream media. A series of queer short films of all genres made by 2SLGBTQ+ filmmakers from the Global South. We are aiming to create safe communities and respectful relationships through awareness events like this one. People of all walks of life are taking back their voices by speaking out against oppression and the right to freedom. For marginalized queer populations living in oppressive regimes, the ability to virtually connect and securely communicate is like a lifeline. Be sure to subscribe  to our newsletter to find out what is new. Screenings are free-of-charge and open to everyone. Donations  go to our sister organization, 75 SHOTS POCKET CINEMA

OCTAVIA'S VISION

dir: Zara Zandieh

Germany, Fiction  17min, 2021

English 

OCTAVIA’S VISIONS is inspired by the Parables of the African-American futurist author Octavia E. Butler, who died in 2006. Using poetic visual language, OCTAVIA’S VISIONS interweaves Butler’s worlds with contemporary issues of environmental degradation, far right extremism, and social liberation. The poetic piece expresses a queer utopian imaginary, a longing to create out of the old something new.
