I’m super happy to announce this: Catch Fire, NowMomentNow and the Queer Film Archive Berlin (QFAB) are bringing a gem of contemporary queer film and its maker to Berlin: WILDNESS by Los Angeles based artist and filmmaker Wu Tsang is a documentary portrait of the Silver Platter, a bar in city’s MacArthur Park area, which has been home for Latin/LBGT immigrant communities since the early sixties. The movie, which premiered at MoMA’s Documentary Fortnight and was shown earlier this year at SXSW and the Whitney Biennial, explores what happened when Wu and and DJs NGUZUNGUZU & Total Freedom started a experimental party entitled “Wildness” at the Silver Platter, which brought a new clientele and new cultural impulses to the place.
Like our MOVEMENT! screening event we will show the film at SHIFT Berlin and are very happy that Wu Tsang will join us for the screening and a director’s talk afterwards. Come over, join us un Facebook and feel free to share this with your friends!
