“The work of the political activist inevitably involves a certain tension between the requirement that position be taken on current issues as they arise and the desire that one's contributions will somehow survive the ravages of time.” -Angela Davis

Queers, Gringos, and Other Deviants: New Films from Mexico

Queers, Gringos, and Other DeviantsFilmmaker Greg Berger, longtime resident of Mexico and professor at the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos, presents cutting edge new films from Mexico in Queers, Gringos, and Other Deviants.

September 14, Tuesday
6 PM

NYU Department of Social and Cultural Analysis
20 Cooper Square, 4th Floor

The legalization of same-sex marriage in Mexico City paved the way for Transgresiones y Diversiones, a selection of shorts produced by students in the first undergraduate Queer Cinema class ever offered in Mexico.

In times of social upheaval, Greg Berger’s ongoing Revolutionary Tourist Project brings improvised comedy to the streets—Spring Breakers Sin Miedo and Jodido México 2010 are two of the latest shorts in this irreverent series.

Balancing the evening is The Right to Choose in Peace, a documentary short about the decriminalization of abortion in Mexico City and U.S. pro-life groups’ influence in Mexico.

[All films are in Spanish with English Subtitles].
