Nothing to Lose & Renovation & Paisa
Nothing To Lose Kelli Jean Drinkwater / Australia, 2018 English without subtitles In light of bigger bodies’ underrepresentation in mainstream contemporary dance, artistic director Kate Champion was determined to explore their potential and put them on stage. We follow the dancers and their quest to create new, unapologetic forms of movement. Unravelling the intersection between fat activism and queer experiences, this documentary is a refreshing and much-needed re-evaluation of body politics. Renovation Fábio Leal / Brazil, 2018 Portuguese with English subtitles TW: Explicit sex While helping his friend paint, Francisco opens up about his body issues, his rotating cast of handsome bedmates, and his love of sweets and Julia Roberts. Paisa Graham Kolbeins & Dorian Wood / USA, 2018 English without subtitles TW: Explicit sex An immersive fever dream that celebrates the beauty of queer brown sensuality, individuality and fat positivity.
