As a result of Queen’s Mile screening at Rio Gender & Sexuality Film Festival it will now be screening in a special program at Recifest, a film festival from Recife, Brazil: Recifest.
They state: ‘It is not from small ambitions that the Recifest – Film Festival of Sexual and Gender Diversity arrives this year, its fifth edition. Denaturalising the look and altering the imagery of LGBT presence in the cinema are some of the wishes of people who insist on the importance of maintaining and multiply spaces like this. When female filmmakers point to the existence of a male gaze , they are removing the camera from their neutrality and announcing that these representations of themselves have often been created by men and from a macho look.’
