Experiments in Queer

8.21.2019

As queer people we try to navigate our world with in a time and space that is not always ours. Our Histories unfold in the pages of diaries and in the streets. Moving through night dodging and weaving laughing timelessly lingering in doorways thirsting for kisses. We are queer in the unknown.
An evening of queer experimental film and video.

Kate Bornstein is a Queer and Pleasant Danger

6.19.2019

Come kick of Pride week with Periwinkle Cinema's 9th annual June Spectacular! This year we are so pleased to be able to screen Kate Bornstein is a Queer and Pleasant Danger!

For decades, performance artist and writer Kate Bornstein has been exploding binaries and deconstructing gender. And, her own identity. Trans-dyke. Reluctant polyamorist. Sadomasochist. Recovering Scientologist. Pioneering Gender Outlaw. Kate Bornstein Is a Queer and Pleasant Danger, joins her on her latest tour capturing rollicking public performances and painful personal revelations as it bears witness to Kate as a trailblazing artist theorist activist who inhabits a space between male and female with wit, style, and astonishing candor. By turns meditative and playful, the film invites us on a thought provoking journey through Kate's world to seek answers to some of life's biggest questions.

Hanky Code the Movie

2.20.2019

Before Internet dating and hookup apps, The Handkerchief Code was largely used by gay men in the 1970’s to distinguish sexual preferences and fetishes in gay clubs and on the streets of places like San Francisco and New York. In Hanky Code: The Movie, Periwinkle Cinema, San Francisco’s queer experimental film collective brings Queer and Trans* filmmakers from across a spectrum of genres, styles, genders, and locations to dissect the code in this epic anthology feature of 25 short films! Each filmmaker or filmmaking team tells a story of a different fetish/color of the code. Films range from narrative to experimental, erotic to animated, with many films redefining the traditional code with colors, patterns, and fetishes up to creative interpretation of the artist.

The OWLS

10.16.2019

A year before, the two couples were at Iris and M.J.'s house for a party when a younger guest, Cricket (Deak Evgenikos), got into a drunken argument; the cross words turned into a fight, and Cricket was accidentally killed. The four women buried Cricket's body and have been keeping the matter a secret, though fliers posted by Cricket's friends suggest they're still looking for her. One evening, a strong, androgynous young woman named Skye (Skyler Cooper) pays a visit to Lily and Carol's home, and Carol, clearly attracted, lets her in even though they've never met. However, Carol soon realizes she's made a mistake -- Skye clearly believes Carol knows something about Cricket's disappearance, and isn't about to leave until the finds out the truth. The Owls (the title is meant to be an acronym for "Older, Wiser Lesbians") was an official selection at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival.

                  Dandy Dust

4.17.2019

A cyborg with a split personality and fluid gender zooms through time to collect his/her selves in a struggle against a family obsessed by lineage: This cartoon-like futuristic low-budget horror satire by the Austro-British filmmaker Ashley Hans Scheirl turns the real into the absurd, for the duration of a small cybernetic, chemo-sexual film adventure at least. Identity is just a matter of creativity, and far beyond cinemas limitations.

By Ashley Hans Scheirl 94 min
