A film still from 'Terra Mater'. A close up of two people embracing. The scene is dimly lit, and only one of the people has their face turned to the camera. This person wears a mask, decorated with reflective jewels, feathers, pearls and paints. They wear a feather headdress. The back of the other person's head is visible, and they have short curly hair. Five people stand on a landscape covered in rubbish. They are each wearing orange and brown workwear, and they carry hessian sacks. The two leftmost people wear helmets which are decorated with plastic and metal waste materials that appear like antennae.

A galvanising short film programme where resistance to bodily and ecological violence is focused through queerness, Afrofuturism, and ecofeminism.

Pop-punk from atop the detritus of colonialism. Queer anger as answer to extractive killing machines. An Indigenous rebirth ritual, threading the hopes of people with the land. A speculative conversation with a traumatised tree; the parallel lives of endometriosis and the Japanese knotweed. In these entangled rebellions, resistance to violence is embodied through mutually enlivening lenses: queerness, Afrofuturism, ecofeminism. Whispering, shouting, refusing, and demanding, they all call for revolt.

Beyond the screen: Feel these rebellions take shape with a reading of original work by Eilidh Akilade (The Skinny, Dazed, Fringe of Colour), shaped in response to the programme.

Booking Information

To make our events more accessible, we operate a sliding scale ticket policy (thanks to SQIFF for leading the way) across all our venues and online. Choose what to pay based on your personal circumstances, from £0-10. All we ask is that you are honest with us so that we can continue offering this flexibility to those who need it most. When you pay a higher price for a ticket, you help subsidise a ticket for somebody on a lower income.
