Film,Q+A, Castle Cinema, £10
Entrancing, sensual and brimming with witchy vibes, this hybrid-fiction-animation is about infinite ways of being and reclaiming Trans stories to transcend labels. Neelu Bhuman leads an international collaborative project with Trans People Of Colour, creating a magical sci-fi anthology across seven stories.
Transfinite shows connections are constantly made with nature, whether through rattlesnakes, ancient trees, water or harnessing the wind. Each story has a call to magic realism and the supernatural. It’s a call back to their ancestral powers of which TPOC are routinely denied, obscured or ridiculed by colonial powers and institutional racism. Transfinite sees their fantasies and powers come fully into force to create a world that is safer and lovelier for all. Boldly expressive with stunning animation, it’s a spiritual and supernatural resistance against the current state of the world.
