As part of this year’s FemFEST (Nov. 23 – 25) Deep Lez Film Craft: The Stuffed and Sticky Films of Freeshow Seymour will be screened at the CBC Radio Room.
Freeshow Seymour is the tag-team alias for the collaborative works of Toronto filmmakers Christina Zeidler and Allyson Mitchell, who have been sharing their love for film craft, thrift shopping, and maximalist approach to art making since 1994.
This retrospective resembles your childhood dress-up box and teenage hope chest. Childhood trauma, puberty, fatphobia, queer fantasies, homophobia, feminist epiphanies, misogyny, breakups and breakdowns, ballerina dreams, and ghost pets are the tattered rags that Freeshow Seymour lovingly transform into dazzling celluloid quilts.
Discussion with filmmakers to follow screening.
