QALEIDOSCOPE: Refraction, Abstraction & Play features Canadian QTBIPOC films that explore, question and play with identity to propose and investigate diverse ways of looking at sexuality, gender and race.
Images, characters, ideas, and realities collide in fantastical, personal, and playful ways. Experimental, artistically rigorous, heavyhitting, and thoughtful, the films involve issues such as feminism, race, racism, class, identity politics, community, colonization, conceptual art, politics, religion, violence, popular culture, gender, sexuality, and transgressive and subversive play. A decidedly tongue-in-cheek disposition and sensibility inject the tour with moments of intelligent, incisive humour.
QALEIDOSCOPE promotes the artistic vision of QTBIPOC Canadian media artists whose work might not otherwise be shown, so this is a great chance to see these works up close and in person.
