Adele Barclay reading Vancouver Queer Film Festival

Date: Saturday, August 19, 2017

Time: 9:30pm

Location: York Theatre (The Cultch 639 Commercial Dr)

Join Adele Barclay as part of the Vancouver Queer Film Festival. Race, queerness and polyamory are investigated with honesty and affection in this award-winning web series turned international film festival hit. Director Chanelle Aponte Pearson sets out to represent Bed-Stuy as she sees it: Black, queer, and home to the activists and artists that make the neighbourhood vibrant and unique. Bronx-bred, and Brooklyn-based herself, Aponte Pearson allows her audiences to feel completely immersed in the complex, sexy, and inherently political world of 195 Lewis. Watch the first five episodes and see for yourself why this series won an Independent Filmmaker Project Award—episodes will be complimented with pop-up performances by local poets Tiare Kela Jung, Kona Katranya, Jillian Christmas, and Adèle Barclay.
