This LGBT+ history month we’re presenting a trio of films exploring the joy and the heartache of first love, from nervous stolen glances to tentative touches that crackle with electricity. These are stories from across the globe about falling in love, coming of age, and discovering who you are.

Our first film will include an extended introduction exploring international queer cinema throughout history, led by Dr. Emmie McFadden, Senior Lecturer in Film Studies at Sheffield Hallam University.

The Films:

Rafiki (Preview) + Introduction — 11th February
“Good Kenyan girls become good Kenyan wives,” but Kena and Ziki long for something more. Despite the political rivalry between their families, the girls resist, when love blossoms between them, the two girls will be forced to choose between happiness and safety. A vibrant film buzzing with the kinetic chemistry between its two leads.

The Way He Looks — 18th February
Leonardo is a blind teenager beginning to take charge of his independence. When a new boy arrives at his school, he finds the way he experiences the world completely changing. A tender, life-affirming story of first love told from a unique perspective, The Way He Looks fizzes with the hopefulness of youth.

Circumstance — 22nd February
Set in contemporary Iran in the unseen world of Iranian youth culture, and filled with underground parties, sex, drugs and defiance, Circumstance is the story of two vivacious young girls discovering their burgeoning sexuality whilst struggling with the boundaries placed upon them by the world they were born into.
