Šta se dešava kada društvo koje postoji nije i ono koje vam je potrebno? Neprekidno ponavljate kako to društvo postoji, pravite fanzine koji će stvoriti pank kvir revolucionare, snimajte subverzivne filmove i distribuirajte ih na sve strane i vremenom će zajednica koju ste stvorili postati i globalna realnost. Upravo o ovome govori „Queercore“. U pitanju je priča koja nas vodi od samih početaka pseudo-pokreta sredinom osamdesetih, stvorenom da „pankerizuje“ pank scenu, sve do širokog spektra umetnika koji su koristili radikalni kvir identitet kako bi uzvratili udarac, istovremeno, i gej asimilaciji i homofobiji pank kulture. Ispitanici diskutuju o homofobiji, rodu, feminizmu, HIV-u, asimilaciji, seksu i, naravno, umetnosti. Na širokoj listi sagovornika nalaze se i Bruce LaBruce, G.B. Jones, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, John Waters, Justin Vivian Bond, Lynn Breedlove, Silas Howard, Pansy Division, Penny Arcade, Kathleen Hanna, Kim Gordon, Deke Elash, Tom Jennings, Team Dresch kao i mnogi drugi.

Yony Leyser rođen je 1984. godine. Odrastao je u Čikagu gde je studirao pisanje, snimanje filmova i dramaturgiju. Nejgovi radovi se bave rasnim i rodnim identitetima kao i pop-kulturom i devijantnim ponašanjima kroz istoriju. Filmovi su mu prikazivani na više od 150 filmskih festivala širom sveta, kao i na televiziji i u umetničkim školama. Dela su mu pozitivno su ocenjena u brojnim mejnstrim medijima. Njegov prvi dugometražni film bio je o piscu Williamu S. Burroughsu i prikazan je na „Merlinka Festivalu“, a u toku karijere ispred njegove kamere našli su se i Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, John Waters i Sonic Youth. Njegov novi film „Queercore“ fokusira se na priču o fenomenu gej pank pokreta.

What happens when the community you need is not the community you have? Tell yourself it exists over and over, make fan zines that fabricate hordes of queer punk revolutionaries, create subversive movies, and distribute those movies widely—and slowly, the community you’ve fabricated might become a real and radical heartbeat that spreads internationally. This is the story that Queercore tells, from the start of a pseudo-movement in the mid-1980s, intended to punk the punk scene, to the widespread rise of artists who used radical queer identity to push back equally against gay assimilation and homophobic punk culture. Interviewees discuss homophobia, gender, feminism, AIDS, assimilation, sex, and, of course, art. The extensive participant list includes Bruce LaBruce, G.B. Jones, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, John Waters, Justin Vivian Bond, Lynn Breedlove, Silas Howard, Pansy Division, Penny Arcade, Kathleen Hanna, Kim Gordon, Deke Elash, Tom Jennings, Team Dresch, and many more.

Yony Leyser (B. 1984) grew up in Chicago. He studied writing, filmmaking and the dramatic arts in High School and at University. His work deals with race, gender identity, pop-culture and deviant social histories. His feature films have been shown collectively in over 150 film festivals; theatrically and on TV throughout the world; as well as at some of the world’s most recognized art institutions. He has received critical acclaim in publications including The New York Times, Der Spiegel, Le Monde, Sight and Sound Magazine, and Haaretz. He finished his first feature-length film William S. Burroughs: A Man Within by the age of 24. Traveling with just a camera and backpack he managed to include many personalities in the comprehensive documentary including Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, John Waters and Sonic Youth. It was released to huge international acclaim in 2010.
