SQIFF: Peace of Mind
September 26, 2015 @ 6:15 pm - 8:15 pm
Scottish Transgender Alliance Presents: Peace of Mind
A document of the life of American artist Flo McGarrell, who lived in Haiti before his death in an earthquake which hit the country in 2010. Locals discuss Flo’s reception as a trans man and his impact on the community art and queer movements which were developing through the FOSAJ Art Centre in Jacmel where he worked. Director Cary Cronenwett explores the legacy of his friend in a poetic, personal look at art, politics, and love in the life of a queer activist.
We are pleased that Cary Cronenwett will join us after the film for a Q&A. Sponsored by the Scottish Transgender Alliance.
Content note: discussion of homophobia, transphobia, and racism; interviewees making homophobic and transphobic comments; non-graphic discussion of death through natural disaster.
