Who this event is for
Main Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus
In collaboration with the Oxford Brookes LGBT+ Staff Forum we are screening TWO SOFT THINGS, TWO HARD THINGS to celebrate LGBT+ History Month. We are also pleased to welcome Director/Producer Michael Yerxa to a Skype Q&A session following the screening.
As a small group in Nunavut, Canada prepare for a seminal LGBT Pride celebration in the Arctic, the film explores how colonization and religion have shamed and erased traditional Inuit beliefs about sexuality and family structure and how, 60 years later, a new generation of Inuit are actively ‘unshaming’ their past.
The Documentary Club screens documentaries made by independent film makers addressing a wide range of cultural, political and social issues. This is intended to broaden the perspectives of Brookes’s students and to engage with the broader community beyond OBU.
Each Thursday during the 2017-18 academic year at 7pm in the John Henry Brookes Lecture Theatre, Headington Campus, we screen a range of documentaries for FREE. We welcome students, staff and members of the public to join the team of volunteers throughout the year.
