Funeral Parade of Roses
Fri Nov 15, 19:00
Film, Rose Lipman Building, £6
Set in Tokyo’s dazzling underground queer scene, this kaleidoscopic masterpiece from the late 60s follows self-defined “gay-boys” Eddie and Leda in their violent love-triangle with club owner Gonda in an erotic and unapologetic phantasmagoria that shatters expectations, and notions of gender. This screening marks the 50th anniversary of a
key pioneering work of Japanese New Wave and Asian queer cinema.
