City of Lost Souls + intro (18)

City of Lost Souls + intro

City of Lost Souls is an explosively fun musical set in West Germany's only trans-owned burger bar, presided over by the incredible Leila, played by Jayne County. With the celebratory approach to deviance you find in John Waters' work, the wonky cabaret of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the inclusive, permeable underground of Derek Jarman's work, this is hilarious, raunchy, low budget delightful filmmaking. All topped off with some amazing songs.

Come and see this rare screening of a hidden classic of queer cinema, introduced by Juliet Jacques (Trans). All profits for this event for Trans Day of Remembrance, supporting the amazing work of Gendered Intelligence, helping trans youth.

This event is programmed by Nobody Ordered Wolves.

Doc'n Roll Festival: Our Most Brilliant Friends - Slow Club (15)

Doc'n Roll Festival: Our Most Brilliant Friends - Slow Club

Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor are Slow Club. After four well-received albums and 10 years of touring, conflicting perspectives on success have pushed the two apart. Could this be the end of the Sheffield-based indie band? With intimate access to what may have been the band’s final tour, filmmaker Piers Dennis joined Charles and Rebecca on the road, capturing the frailties and brilliance of their musical partnership and documenting what friendship looks like from the back of a bus. Unflinchingly clear-eyed, it captures not only the camaraderie, elation, fretfulness and boredom of road life, but also the moments that the big existential questions – ambition, artistic purpose, emotional vulnerability – appear. A remarkable, bittersweet portrait.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
