Queerama

By FHW Marketing


Synopsis

Queerama is the anticipated new film from award-winning documentary maker Daisy Asquith and Welsh producer Catryn Ramasut. Created from the treasure trove of the BFI archive, the story traverses a century of gay experiences, encompassing persecution and prosecution, injustice, love and desire, identity, secrets, forbidden encounters, sexual liberation and pride.


The soundtrack weaves the lyrics and music of John Grant, Goldfrapp and Hercules & Love Affair with images, guiding us intimately into the relationships, desires, fears and expressions of gay men and women in the 20th century - a century of incredible change.
