Ah, Hollywood. Light of our lives, thorn in our sides…This programme, mostly screened on 16mm, celebrates the delicious way wondermental filmmakers continue to subvert Hollywood and media ‘norms’, by turns dismembering it to re-member it as something new; pointing to the queer aspects that are present either through absence or identification; a deconstruction of linear narrative; a life of imitation; recontextualised film scenes breathing new life; a clever backwards door slamming scene in a Hollywood domestic; a lascivious recreation of a B movie; a very unusual ‘B star’ on a moving couch; and Peter Tscherkassky’s award-winning new work (yes, wondermental cinema has a Hollywood too!). With work by Tartaglia, Vaughan, Swiczinsky, Wong, Schreiner, Mahé, Czioska, Marte, and Tscherkassky.
