Queery: Monthly Films
IAO has long been a space to celebrate the non-traditional, and is a safe space for all things "queer." IAO premiers "QUEERY" a film series exploring all things "queer" in cinema. Though the theme is "queery" the films are not limited to LGBT subjects or audiences. What makes something "queer" and something "normal"? What do LGBT films in mainstream culture do for the LGBTQ community? How does mainstream reception of LGBTQ culture affect queer culture? How does Queer Theory affect the way we look at straight and non-LGBT cinema? We will ask these questions as we look at everything from quiet art films to major blockbuster action movies. Starting in June in honor of Pride month, we will be screening films weekly on Thursdays. Starting in July, the films will continue on the second Thursday of each month.
