Europe Week | Short Films and Snacks: Visualizing LGBTQ identity in the EU
April 10, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
This mini film festival will feature several short films (screened in their native language but with English subtitles) visualizing LGBTQ identity in the EU, from various member states’ perspectives. Each film will be briefly introduced by a UNC faculty expert, and a short guided discussion of each one will follow its screening. A final summative discussion will encourage the audience to analyze these films together with hopes of developing a more intersectional approach to understanding LGBTQ identity in the EU and its various layers. The event is free and open to the public. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.
The following are the short films and their discussants:
- “De Vuelta” (2015) by Gabriel Dorado | Introduced and discussed by Professor Cristina Carrasco, Romance Studies (Spanish)
- “Home?” (2018) by Elliot Blue | Introduced and discussed by Professor Priscilla Layne, Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures (German)
- “Luigi e Vincenzo” (2014) by Giuseppe Bucci | Introduced and discussed by Professor Amy Chambless, Romance Studies (Italian)
This event is part of Europe Week 2019! It is also an official UNC Pride Week event! We are excited to co-sponsor UNC Pride Week this year through this event.
