what is lesbian cinema? live drawing show
To coincide with the launch of the The Book of Gabrielle feature film, there will be an accompanying live drawing show: "What (the fuck) is Lesbian Cinema?"
The show is an irreverent but also passionate look at cinema particularly the world of niche lesbian cinema. Using hands on visceral, immediate pen, paper and watercolour, I want to explore alongside the audience where the desires of lesbian film are at right now alongside the politics, the money and the whole passions that are aroused around it.
The drawing shows can exists alongside The Book of Gabrielle or play alone with the film. They can also introduce other lesbian films or even..non lesbian films.
