Lionel Soukaz: Militant Desire

This programme contains 2 films.

In-Person screening

Maltings Henry Travers
21 September 2019, 17:00 – 18:09

Lionel Soukaz is a pivotal figure in European queer cinema: a filmmaker, collaborator with queer theorist Guy Hocquenghem and organiser of the first festivals of Cinémas Différents in France. Combining the pop cultural ironies of Jack Smith and Kenneth Anger with protest cinema, his films target the norms of heterosexual and homosexual culture alike, calling for the end of identity and the free reign of desire. Writer/curator Paul Clinton presents two works by Soukaz with an illustrated lecture.

Ixe

“Ixe (written X and pronounced EEKS – as it is pronounced in French – like a scream, a wound) is an imploded, crucified film. X is drawn and quartered. At the four points of the compass, at the four ends of the cross, War, Sex, Religion and Drugs.” —Guy Hocquenghem
