Queer Abolitionist Drive-in Film Series: (Black) Future

August 20 @ 8:00 pm - 11:59 pm

Queer Abolitionist Drive-in Film Series

Ronika McClain, Christee Imogen Henry, and Alden DiCamillo, in affiliation with Southerners on New Ground, Athens Cultural Affairs Committee, Rabbit Hole Studios, Athens Mutual Aid Network, ATHICA, and Lemon Drop Studio present a series of films curated by Ronika McClain to be shown outdoors via a drive-in theater provided by Rabbit Hole Studio. These films present the history and nuance of queer abolition of systems of policing, incarceration, and state-driven debilitation.

Location: Rabbit Hole Studio Outdoor Parking and Garden area
1001 Winterville Rd, Athens, GA 30605

All events free of charge, but slots for parking must be reserved online at athensmutualaid.net or bit.ly/QueerAbolitionist

(Black) Future (August 20th): 8 PM – 12 AM
Watermelon Woman (Cheryl Dunye), Moonlight (Barry Jenkins)
These two films present imagined and real futures for us. Queer folks often have to dig to find their own histories and stories, and to bring them into the present requires us to see time in a multidimensional and non-linear sense. For me, the future is Black, empathetic, enthusiastic, full of desire and potential.
