By Hook Or By Crook, 2001- 98 min, by Harry Dodge and Silas Howard
By Hook or by Crook chronicles the tale of two unlikely friends who commit petty crimes as they search for a path  to understanding themselves and the outside world. Shy, a transgender man, who leaves his small town after the death of his father, and heads to the big city to live a life of crime. Along the way, he encounters Valentine, a
quirky adoptee, in search of his birth mother. An immediate kinship is sparked between these men and they become partners in crime. Suffering money troubles, emotional problems, and physical confrontations, the duo face their issues head on and learn to trust each other and support each other in pursuit of their goals.


Who will Fuck Daddy, 2015-65 min, Lasse Langstrom

A hypnotic, intensely personal film featuring a mix of mysterious and mystical images: a masturbating moon, a couple having sex in a tent filled with balloons and electric lights, a pair of vibrators hidden in a head of lettuce. Beautifully episodic, Who Will Fuck Daddy? switches from documentary sequences about parenthood, gender, ecstasy, and rebirth, to cruising sites in the Swedish forest, to the question of just how much pressure to put on a pair of nipples. Lasse Långström’s latest work is as political as ever with an underlying theme of the death of heteronormativity and homonationalism and a wide variety of bodies on show.

To celebrate Liberation day on the 5th of May -the end of the second world war-  we screen: “Check It”

In collaboration with Cinema Kriterion.

Fed up with being pushed around, a group of gay and trans teens of color form a gang and fight back on the brutal streets of Washington D.C. They call their gang ‘Check it’ and this group of one-time victims of bullying, rape and abuse have turned the tables on anyone trying to hurt them. The group formed to provide its members safety in numbers and let people know that if they jump a queer kid in D.C., they may get beaten into a coma.

This raw and intimate portrait follows three childhood friends as they struggle to survive and claw their way out of gang life through an unlikely avenue: fashion. Co-directors Toby Oppenheimer and Dana Flor create a moving story of empowerment and a provocative exploration of class, marginalization and gang violence in the United States.


Yeniden Doğuş, Rebirth

Rebirth is a dance ritual. With every move, we are born again. With every little step, we cut the umbilical cord. With every turn, we create a new shell for ourselves.

Rebirth reflects the transformation of a performer with every beat on stage. She/he tears apart the veils the society has stitched on her/himself during the ritual. She/he gives birth to her/his new identity over and over again.

Directors: Gökçe Oraloğlu & Zehra Gökcimen
Cast: Ahsen Gönülce
Turkey, 2017, 4’, color
Turkish with English subtitles
