“Open Embodiments: Locating Somatechnics in Tucson”:
International Conference, Film and Artist Talk
(filmmaker in person)
Exploded View will screen Dr. Phoebe Hart’s will screen acclaimed autobiographical documentary film Orchids: My Intersex Adventure. This film asks what is the experience of a person with an intersex condition, and how can this experience be embodied and accessed on screen in documentary? A rare opportunity to experience this outstanding film! The second portion of the evening will be Susan Stryker presenting and discussing her award winning 2005 film Screaming Queens.
EMMY® Award-winning “Screaming Queens” tells the little-known story of the first known act of collective, violent resistance to the social oppression of queer people in the United States — a 1966 riot in San Francisco’s impoverished Tenderloin neighborhood, three years before the famous gay riot at New York’s Stonewall Inn.
“Screaming Queens” introduces viewers to street queens, cops and activist civil rights ministers who recall the riot and paint a vivid portrait of the wild transgender scene in 1960s San Francisco. Integrating the riot’s story into the broader fabric of American life, the documentary connects the event to urban renewal, anti-war activism, civil rights and sexual liberation. With enticing archival footage and period music, this unknown story is dramatically brought back to life.
