Movements about searching

The graffiti on walls in Brazilian streets are traces of a movement that have remained in a public space. They become symbols. How do we produce meaning together? What is meaningful right now, in the face of so much senselessness and violence? The films depict moments of searching. What questions can we ask now? What connections can we make? What stories can be told? The films invite us to ask questions together. In doing so, they remain in smaller contexts and closer proximity, rather than large sweeping narratives. Day-to-day life is brought into focus and is the starting point for further discussion.

This section provides with its own forum for all genres of film that deal with sexual identity and diversity. The desired! – film lust & queer programme puts the focus on lifestyles and concepts of love that differ from those of society’s majority and question prevailing ideas and notions of gender and their assigned social roles. The diversity of Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Intersexual lifestyles is highlighted in six to eight programmes comprising documentaries, feature films and lectures on film culture.
