In 2019, a queer activist group in Tbilisi is organising Georgia’s first Pride March. Many still remember the traumatic violence at the IDAHOBIT demonstrations in 2013. Years later, not only the Pride March but also the organisers themselves are threatened by ultra-right groups, Georgian government and Orthodox Church, which do not tolerate LGBTQI+ flags in Tbilisi’s streets. With membership in the European Union, anti-Russian voices in politics and at the same time continued strong Russian influence, Georgian society finds itself at a crossroads of geopolitical turmoil. At this turning point, activists are courageously fighting for queer visibility and human rights.

This year we are showing two films from Georgia. Besides MARCH FOR DIGNITY, this is the feature film WET SAND. Both films show a Georgian society that is conservative in large parts, strongly influenced by the Orthodox Church and very homophobic. Nevertheless, both films bring a lot of queer empowerment, strong emotions and queer characters to the screen.

A stirring documentary that rushes from 1980s post-punk London straight into our cinema in all its wild and provocative abusive, leather-wearing glory! The film follows a close-knit group of Dykes who met at Greenham Common Peace Camp and later became artists, performers, musicians and activists in London.
A stunning mix of animation, archive footage and interviews tells the story of a radical scene: squats, BDSM nightclubs, anti-thug rallies, protests demanding action on AIDS and the passionate bonds of a chosen family. This film offers an extraordinarily privileged glimpse into a bygone world of those who not only lived their politics with heartfelt conviction, but live on to tell their story now.

After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, a community of queer people occupied a house in the almost derelict Mainzer Straße in Berlin. Juliet Bashore’s legendary documentary follows the fortunes of the queer house. It follows the daily struggle of the queens and queers to have a place for themselves in the chaos and unrest after German reunification. Together they try to create and defend this anarchistic space until it is violently evicted by the police.

Battle of Tuntenhaus Part 2
UK | 1992 | Documentary | Director: Juliet Bashore |20 Min. | English and German with German subtitles
We get a polyphonically perverse visit from Berlin from the residents of the Fag House and their friends! The queer-anarchist Rattenchor has been singing against injustice for about 20 years and will entertain us with a concert of well-known hits in new and political guise. One or the other cork will surely pop in our bar – you are warmly invited!
