Wednesday 28.08.19 – 8:45pm: The Handmaiden | Yellow Carpet Films – Theme 2 : Queer Film
Yellow Carpet Film Nights is a place to appreciate the wonderful art of film. Every month we will explore a different theme that shines a light on the representation of social topics such as women, queer, gender and ethnic diversity.
Our second theme is QUEER FILM. Over the month of August we will be screening four films that show how the LGBTQI community have been represented over the generations and genres of cinema.
*** This event will be open air unless the weather does not permit. If the weather is not kind to us, we will move the screening into the warehouse and make an announcement 2 hours before the film begins.
Have you ever thought about how the LGBTQ community have been portrayed in films?
Do you think they have been portrayed fairly?
