Aankondiging, gepost door: nn op 09/06/2022 06:01:17

Wanneer: 11/06/2022 - 20:00

Hi there, we are queer.red presents! and we are an initiative on sex worker film & arts in Amsterdam. By promoting visual arts about, with, and by the sex worker community we hope to contribute to greater visibility of a more nuanced representation of sex work. We are a group of (former) sex workers, feminists, queer and trans people.

If you are part of our community, or up for making acquaintance with sex workers and all the cultural goodies that are produced by our communities: come to our screening on 11 June at 20:00 at Filmhuis Cavia!

During this event we present films that focus on the intersections of sex work, trans, Latinx and migrant communities. We will screen the film CAER/CAUGHT (61 min) by Nicola Mai and Colectivo Intercultural Transgrediendo and What if Tomorrow I’m Next (4 min) by Cosmopolitrans (with support from Papaya Kuir). A panel discussion with the film makers will follow in order to further explore the experimental nature of Caer and the collaborative process of community-led storytelling in both films. The discussion is facilitated by queer.red Board Member Domi Olivieri, anthropologist, activist, researcher and teacher in the field of gender studies, media and society and will be pre-recorded to accommodate time zones, languages, and technical limitations.

CAER is an experimental and collaborative documentary combining fiction (ethnofiction) and observational nonfiction methods to include people whose lives are portrayed and who are directly concerned in all phases of its production. The documentary is the result of the collaboration between Nicola Mai and the Transgrediendo Intercultural Collective, a grassroots nonprofit organization defending the rights of transgender Latina migrant women in Queens, New York City. CAER is also a tribute to the work and legacy of Lorena Borjas, the mother of these Latin transgender women living in Queens, who was one of the first victims of COVID-19 in New York in March 2020. The story and the roles in the film were written and played by members of the Transgrediendo Intercultural Collective who were also involved in the editing of the film. They were written collaboratively through several writing workshops allowing the people directly concerned to express their real individual and collective experiences of migration, sex work, and exploitation.


Cosmopolitrans | 2021 | DE/NL | 4' | English/Spanish

What if Tomorrow I’m Next is a film made by Cosmopolitrans to show how trans people are killed independently of how they dress or the work they engage with. It was recorded at the T-House in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) in May 2021. Cosmopolitrans is a collective made of migrant trans sex workers, living and/or transiting in Germany. They work with members of the migrant trans community, paying close attention to the needs and special circumstances of each of their members. They work on topics such as education, developing skills, empowerment and community building. Also cultural events for and by the community and (monitoring) and support to trans sex workers in their work places, providing material for protection, for sex work, as well as anti-covid material.
