Pink Excavation at SQIFF 2018, Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow

8 Dec 2018 - 8 Dec 2018
Pink Excavation is Natasha Lall’s first feature length film. With Lall as the narrator and cameos from local queers Mina Baird and Junie Latte, this DIY film explores the preservation of queer histories in Glasgow, 2518. Pink Excavation sees Lall excavate 90s-00s technological relics that are outdated in the 2500s and become frustrated at their lack of understanding on how to access information from these ancient technologies. Upon interactions with an archaeologist and a ghost Lall discusses whether or not the poor archiving of LGBT culture has a positive impact on the queer community. The film is a lo-fi, sci-fi contemplation on the pros and cons of queer visibility. Screening with short Reality Fragment (14 mins) by Qigemu, which examines how multiple lived worlds, each their own mix of memories, sensations, and thoughts, coexist with de facto presentations of distance, history, and totality. Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.
