Queer Genius is a cinematic exploration of four visionary queer artists breaking down barriers in their creative fields as they confront fame, failure, family, gender, and sexuality. The film embraces the communal possibilities of “genius” from a particularly queer perspective crossing genre and generational perspective. The film features intertwined portraits of Eileen Myles, Barbara Hammer, Jibz Cameron, and Black Quantum Futurism. Followed by a panel discussion with Director Chet Catharine Pancake, Jibz Cameron, and others. This screening is part of Lightbox Film Center’s new series, Queering the Lens, a selection of groundbreaking nonfiction films that re-imagine or “queer” the form of documentary.
