Event Information

Now in its fourth year, Screening Rights is the Midlands' international festival of social justice film. The festival programme combines screenings of some of the most interesting and highly acclaimed new films with post screening discussions involving directors, producers, writers, activists and experts. Screening Rights aims to inspire and develop debate on the potential of film to affect personal, social and political change.

The rock documentary and political manifesto Tranny Fag depicts the life of Brazilian musician and spoken word artist Linn da Quebrada, a self-proclaimed ‘tranny fag’, who uses her body and music as weapons to fight machismo, transphobia, racism and conformity. 

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Dr Gemma Commane (expert on queer performance, Birmingham City University), Dr Antonio Marcio Da Silva (expert on Latin American cinema, University of Surrey) and Aquila Edwards (trans activist, musician and performer).   

(Film running time is 76 mins, followed by the Q&A of approx. 45 mins).

Winner of the Teddy documentary award at Berlinale 2018.
