LIFT co-sponsors “Elastic Resistance”

at the 2016 Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival.

  

Whether through spectatorial engagement or physical interaction, we learn how to express ourselves through performance and manipulation, as invisible influences create lasting and tangible effects on our bodies, words and actions. As we grow and build our identities, we find ourselves less like putty and more like chewy taffy. Ruminating on the malleability of self, Elastic Resistance explores how our physical and mental aspects become pliable, sticky, and permanent sites of negotiation.
 
In partnership with Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival, Pleasure Dome presents a collection of queer artist’s film and video works that play with and against one another and assert a plasticity of self that must traverse the stickiness of memory, skin and even medium. Including works by artists Ruth Novaczek, Christos Massalas, Dayna McLeod, Kim Kielhofner and more.

 

Sponsored by the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto and Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.
