Details

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in Britain. To celebrate, Towner presents a series of screenings and events to explore the last fifty years of LGBT+ experiences in the UK.

Join us as Brighton-based queer programmer, Jacob Engelberg, presents an illustrated talk, journeying through cinema’s representations of bisexuality, from well-known Hollywood neo-noir thrillers to underground queer filmmaking to the extremities of European art cinema.

When do we read a character as bisexual? How can a character’s bisexuality be communicated? What tropes and stereotypes are at play in these representations and what purpose do they serve? What is the impact of the scarcity of bisexual representations on bisexual people’s lives?

The talk will be followed by a screening of the classic ‘70s film Sunday Bloody Sunday, 1971.
