XPOSED Short Films Online

The XPOSED Queer Film Festival Berlin is well known for its experimental ethos and its broad interpretation of “queerness”. Together with the Berlinische Galerie, XPOSED has selected six short films from earlier editions and from the forthcoming programme.

About

Formally, geographically and thematically, the works represent a broad spectrum: compilations like “Playback” about the drag and trans*community of the 1980s in Cordoba, Argentina, a portrait of the Ghanaian performance artist “Va-Bene”, and the audio-visual essay “Galatée à l’Infini” about the subjugation of the female body. Here, physicality is a key to liberation. It is the starting point not only for a search for new forms of expression, but also for breaking free, as with the immersive poetic reflections on queerness in “Journey to the CharBagh” and “Pirate Boys”. Self-determination and appropriation are carefully celebrated in “Batería”, where a lonely camera roams a very special cruising area – and longs for utopian spaces in the present. The film programme was put together as part of the online project “Out and About: Queer Visibilities in the Collection”.
