Exploring intimacy within the digital world
The Women’s Center for Creative Work is a collective of feminist creatives which cultivates intersectional art in its brilliance. The centre has been producing some of the most innovative works out there and bringing to the table truly eye-opening and educational content. In these coming weeks, they are holding the ‘Films for Escapism’ event. As isolation has hit us all hard, and even as we ascend back into society the need for escape becomes more and more necessary. WCCW is here with the answers, streaming the works of four black queer filmmakers who examine themes of intimacy within the digital world and surveillance. Escapism doesn’t always mean light relief, but it can mean education and enlightenment. The four works by Sarah Nicole Francois, summer fucking mason, Rhea Dillon and Jerome AB are curated by Alima Lee and each offer a new, and unexplored perspective of the world around us. Check out the programme here and tune in ASAP.
