Get ready to the “Nakamura Keith Haring Collection Queer Film Screening” taking place on June 24th (Sat) and June 25th (Sun) as part of the dazzling exhibition, “Keith Haring: The Downtown Renaissance,” which coincides with the month of Pride, June! The term “queer” serves as an expansive umbrella, encompassing a rich tapestry of identities that go beyond the confines of gender and sexuality. These queer films take us on a captivating journey, exploring the depths of queer identities and communities, celebrating sexualities that defy conventional categories. Through an array of perspectives and artistic techniques, these films beautifully express alternative sexualities.
Prepare yourself for a feast of cinematic delights! The event will feature a curated selection of six films from the 1980s, showcasing youth romance, futuristic societal dramas, electrifying music, mesmerizing dance, and much more. We bring you a couple of films that will be screened for the very first time in Japan.
