Zdravo svete

Režija: Kenet Elveba
Zemlja: Norveška
Trajanje: 87 minuta
Dokumentarni film

Kako je zaista biti jedina autovana kvir osoba u celoj školi? U dokumentarnom filmu Zdravo svete (Hei Verden) pratimo živote Rune (12), Viktora (12), Dine (13) i Joakima (14) kroz tri godine u periodu od petog do osmog razreda. Ispričan očima četvoro mladih ljudi, film nam daje uvid u razumevanje kakav je osećaj odrastati kao kvir osoba. Zdravo Svete je zabavna, zanimljiva i dirljiva priča o tome kada niste kao svi ostali. Šta vam se vrti po glavi kada ste zapravo odlučili da izađete iz ormana i kažete svetu da ste kvir, a škola od vas traži da sačekate kako bi oni prvo mogli da „pripreme“ vest? Ili kada vas saigrač iz rukometne reprezentacije optuži da ga previše gledate pod tušem posle treninga? A kako ćeš naći pratnju za matursko veče kada si jedina autovana osoba u školi? A kako je upoznati poznate dreg kraljice u RuPaulovoj Drag Race? Da li će ti život kao autovanoj kvir osobi vremenom postati lakši? Zdravo svete je slavljenje dece i mladih tinejdžera koji imaju hrabrosti da budu drugačiji, bilo da se radi o tome da kažu da su gej, da farbaju kosu u plavo ili da se oblače u odeću koju inače koristi suprotni pol. A Zdravo svete je veoma pogodan i za školske projekcije za one od 11 do 16 godina. Ovo je odlična prilika da se film sa kvir sadržajem prikaže širokoj publici.

Hello World

Director: Kenneth Elvebakk
Country of Origin: Norway
Duration: 87 minutes
Documentary

What is it really like to be the only open queer in the whole school? In the documentary Hello World (Hei Verden), we follow the lives of Runa (12), Viktor (12), Dina (13) and Joachim (14) through the three years they go to lower secondary school. Told through the eyes of the four young people, the film gives us a window into understanding what it can be like to grow up as a queer. Hello World is a fun, engaging and moving story about not being like everyone else. What goes around in your head when you have actually decided to get out of the closet and tell the outside world that you are queer, but the school asks you to wait so they can “prepare” the news first? Or when a teammate on the handball team accuses you of looking too much in the shower after training? And how are you going to find a date for the prom when you’re the only one at school who’s out of the closet? And how is it to meet the famous drag queens in RuPaul’s Drag Race? Will life as an open queer become easier over time? Hello World is a celebration of kids and young teens that have the courage to be different, whether it’s about telling they are gay, colouring their hair blue or dressing in clothes normally used by the opposite sex. And Hello World is also very suitable for school screenings for those from 11 to 16 years old. This is a great opportunity to screen a movie with queer content to a wide audience.

Half-prepped before a dressing room mirror in the back of a bustling city gay bar, Russell, an actor turned drag queen, struggling to find his voice, is given a wrenching ultimatum. Overcome by indecision, he escapes to his grandmother’s house in the country. There he finds sardonic Margaret in steep decline.

Izlečeni

Režija: Benet Singer, Patrik Samon
Zemlja: Sjedinjene Američke Države
Trajanje: 80 minuta
Dokumentarni film

Mentalno bolestan. Devijantan. Oboleo. I potrebno je lečenje. Ovo su bili neki od termina koje su psihijatri koristili da opisuju lezbejke i gej muškarce 1950-ih, 1960-ih i ranih 1970-ih. Prema medicinskim ustanovama, svaka gej osoba — ma koliko bila dobro prilagođena — patila je od mentalnog poremećaja. I sve dok su lezbejke i gej muškarci bili „bolesni“, napredak ka jednakosti je bio nemoguć. Izlečen beleži bitku koju je vodila mala grupa aktivista koji su objavili rat strašnoj instituciji—i izvojevali ključnu pobedu u modernom pokretu za LGBTQ ravnopravnost.

Cured

Directors: Bennett Singer, Patrick Sammon
Country of Origin: United States
Duration: 80 minutes
Documentary

Mentally ill. Deviant. Diseased. And in need of a cure. These were among the terms psychiatrists used to describe lesbians and gay men in the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s. According to the medical establishment, every gay person—no matter how well-adjusted—suffered from a mental disorder. And as long as lesbians and gay men were “sick,” progress toward equality was impossible. CURED chronicles the battle waged by a small group of activists who declared war against a formidable institution—and won a crucial victory in the modern movement for LGBTQ equality.
