Fringe! From Home:
Creating Cripworld

Pissed off by the endless ableism of navigating late-stage crapitalism? Looking to make a hot queer criptopia with your friends? We're gonna show you how. The cultures & communities of d/Deaf, disabled, chronically ill & neurodivergent queer people show up in full gorgeous colours in this short film programme about our lives. 

 

Coming Out Autistic | dir. Steven Fraser | UK 2022 | 4'

An animated documentary on the double coming-out of telling people you're queer & autistic.


Flare | dir. Kate Blamire | Germany 2023 | 27'

Kate's life with an autoimmune disease leads them on a search for freedom between beds at home & in hospitals.

Living With It | dir. Holly Summerson | UK 2023 | 7'

Lee's got to learn to live with her supernatural roommate-cum-chronic illness if she ever wants to get the home of her dreams.

C-TV (If I tell you I like you ...) | dir. Eva Egermann, Cordula Thym | Austria 2023 | 30'

In a dazzling talkshow run by a talking hamster, disabled activists and artists show off their glamour & fight back against heteronormative ableist socety.

Bittersweet Power | dir. Victor Di Marco, Márcio Picoli | Brazil 2022 | 19'

Lucas, Luiza and Bia take power & pleasure in queer disabled kinship, ripping apart the old bureaucratic world & building it anarchic & new.

(para)site | dir. Baiba Sprance | UK 2022 | 11'

Fashioned in armour of nappies & fishhooks, zack revisions disabled working-class lives through history. We're not parasites for needing support, capitalism is.
