Misja Brunhilda

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on October 29, 2008 by annakalina

I recently discovered the short movie “Misja Brunhilda” by Queer Misja collective from Warszawa, which I highly recommend! It’s a clever appropriation and queer reading of the polish sexploitation science fiction movie “sexmisja” from 1984. Storyline: Two male volunteers for a refreezing experiment are revived several years in the future, in a world with only women which is run by the League of Women’s Lib, which is depicted as cruel and manhating etc., but at the end the two men manage to make their gards fall in love with them and they regain power. So basically a heteronormative, misagonyst movie. “Misja Brunhilda” turns things upside down, adressing heteronormativity in a very intelligent and funny way, making a gay couple out of the two men, kept in prison for refusing to take heteronormativity pills, but soon to be rescued by the mouse Brunhilda, special force agent of the queer “decadencja” movement. watch it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmOaRXHP-Rg

Red Dawns festival is looking for submissions

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on October 22, 2008 by antjemaria

The feminist and queer festival Rdece Zore (Red Dawns) will happen around the 8 of march 2009 in Ljubljana, Slovenia for the 10th time. The organizers are still looking for people that want to join the group and support the festival! If you are interested in participating or to get some information how to visit the festival watch the webpage and the call for submissions: http://www.kudmreza.org/rdece/

The Red Dawns festival is a lively and colourfull festival with a lot of different participants and visitors. The atmosphere at the festival is quite familiar, but in the same time, it connects not only activists from former yugoslavia, but from all over “europe” – a good conecting point for artists, activists and people just interested in the topic of feminism and queer and at the end of each day, a place for great parties with sometimes really amazing acts!
