“One of the most vital ways we sustain ourselves is by building communities of resistance, places where we know we are not alone.” – bell hooks
Pera Film celebrates Pride Week with its film program entitled Companionship As a Site of Resistance.
In the program that brought together four films from different geographies, which met with the audience at important festivals in the past years, the theme of clinging to life together comes to the fore. All the queer characters in the films resist pressure and being stuck with the people they make friends with while trying to open up breathing spaces for themselves in the country, society and families they live in.
In the program that will take place between 24 June – 8 July; Young and Wild, who turned the unbridled and unbounded nature of adolescent sexuality into a destructive force; How the Room Felt, a documentary about a Georgian women's football club, consisting of a group of women and non-binaries who meet frequently to spend time together, to discuss existential issues; while revealing a story of self-discovery and emancipation, Swing Ride, which conveys an extraordinary friendship, and Three Tidy Tigers Tied a Tie Tighter, which tells a queer era where memories are only shared collectively.
