This event is being held on the traditional, indigenous land of the Haudenosaunee and the Anishinaabe.
Screening Under the Stars is an annual film screening jointly hosted by Reelout Arts Project Inc. and OPIRG Kingston. This year we will be screening ‘Two Soft Things, Two Hard Things’ a brand new documentary, directed by Queen’s alum Michael Yerxa and Reelout Film Fest darling Mark Kenneth Woods. Admission is by donation and all proceeds will go to NIMAC (National Indigenous Media Arts Coalition).
As a small group in Nunavut prepare for a seminal LGBT Pride celebration in the Arctic, the film explores how colonization and religion have shamed and erased traditional Inuit beliefs about sexuality and family structure and how, 60 years later, a new generation of Inuit are actively ‘unshaming’ their past.
For folks who have never been to The Screening Room before, or would like to walk over as a group from Queen’s campus; we will be meeting at The Grey House (51 Bader Lane) at 8:30pm to head over jointly – the walk will be less than 20 minutes.
This event is open to all members of the Kingston community. Please note that at this time The Screening Room is not wheelchair accessible.
