Fringe! Film Fest

London, United Kingdom

The final event in Queer Eyes, a season of docs from the RAI collection and chats hosted by Fringe!

Mirror Mirror is based on an audio-visual ethnography of London’s queer Club Wotever. Begun in the autumn of 2003, it promoted itself as a club that welcomed all genders and sexualities – a counterpoise to London’s mainstream segregated scenes. The film came out of anthropologist Moffat’s own personal and theoretical knowledge of contemporary radical queer practices: in her own words, “I wanted to know if I could somehow make the two ideas that ‘gender is drag’ and that ‘documentary film is a drag of reality’ mutually inform and comment upon each other”.

1. Watch the film for free here from Thursday 9th July to Thursday 16th July: https://raifilm.org.uk/queereyes/
2. And sign up via the ticket link for access to the FREE live Q&A on Wednesday 15th July, 8pm, featuring guest speaker Zemirah Moffat (director) and others.
