Lesbian Longing & Queer Diaspora Screening

  • Comfort Station 2579 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

This program will examine the exile of queer Cubans, Puerto Ricans and Argentinians from the lens of lesbian and diasporic filmmakers Susana Blaustein Munoz, Frances Negrón-Muntaner and Kelly Anderson. Unpacking the sense of remorse, loss and isolation felt by displaced queer peoples from Latin America and the Caribbean, these video works provide unique and powerful voices as declarations of queer pride and resistance while intersecting narratives of Afro-Latinidad, immigration and resilience.
