The focus of Queer City Cinema 16 and Performatorium 7 is marginalized bodies - those that are often viewed as less than, unhealthy, burdensome, defective, dangerous and threatening - and those artists that use their bodies to confront stigma, to resist and defy perceived and systemic attitudes, to activate awareness and insight, and to engage a rethink towards empathic impulses. Bad (ass) Bodies will see films, performances and discussions involving Fat, HIV+, aged, disabled, diseased and abject bodies.
