“We can keep from a child all knowledge of earlier myths, but we cannot take from him/her the need for mythology.”
- Carl Jung
For the 10th edition of CINEMQ, we delve into MYTH: stories of the ancient’s with a queer thread to here and now. Like Ariadne, we seek the beast, twisting loss through the labirynth. We are inflected by the fear of being stripped off a myth, and a lifetime outside of it.
From contemporary reimagination of the classical Greek myth of Endymion, 70s psychedelic erotica, Oscar Wilde’s short stories, to pop music videos that opt for liberating alternatives, CINEMQ is back at Shelter for a night of private myths and public dreams, a collective yearning for our own history and futurity.
Look back, gaze ahead. Queer futurity awaits in myths of our own making.
CINEMQ is a queer short film screening + party series. It is run by a group of queers with too much on their mind to sit still for long. They pull together the filthy and gorgeous of queer world cinema once a month, an eclectic mixtape of short films, visuals and music. Walls are our screens. Rooftops and basements are our cinemas. Queer is our purpose.
