Homo Humour film screening & Q&A

SATURDAY 7 MAY / 6 – 8PM / BOOK HERE

 

Join us for the screening of a selection of short films, followed by a Q&A with Lee Campbell and Greg Thorpe.

Homo Humour explores the history of comedy as a queer identity defence, a means of expression and storytelling and the subversive and surprising ways that humour can be used on screen. Homo Humour responds to the growing interest in LGBTQ+ folk using film and moving image to tell their stories by focusing purely on humour. Whilst the concept of humour helping LGBTQ+ people is an interesting (and vital) world to explore, this event seeks to also engage wider groups of artists, academics and students interested in film and/or the study of humour. We also invite health/inclusion/wellbeing practitioners who are interested in how comedic storytelling may encourage people’s understanding of LGBTQ+ communities.

After the screening, Lee will be joined by Greg Thorpe to discuss aspects of the films and the ideas behind his curatorial project followed by Q & A from the audience.

Curated by Dr Lee Campbell, Senior Lecturer at Wimbledon College of Arts, University of the Arts London, artist and curator of POW! Play on Words, The Bridge House Theatre, London, Homo Humour was first presented at Edgezones gallery in Miami in January 2020 and then at Sardinia Pride/Queeresima in June 2020 bringing together emerging and established gay male artists/independent filmmakers for the first time from all over the world including Marcel Barelli, Jordan McKenzie, Hamid Waheed, Steve Reinke, Ernesto Sarezale, Harold Offeh, John Walter and Wrik Mead.  

This year, the showreel has already been screened at The Bridge House Theatre, London and Metal, Southend-on-Sea. Lee will present a talk about Homo Humour at the conference Queer Pedagogies organised by the Queer-Feminist Interdisciplinary Working Group at The European University Institute in Florence at the end of May 2022.

Greg Thorpe is Festival Director of GAZE, the International LGBTQ+ film festival in Dublin, and a freelance writer and creative producer working between Manchester and Dublin.
