Dirty Looks makes its Philadelphia debut! A New York-based roaming platform for queer experimental film and video, Dirty Looks will screen an evening of apocalyptic-themed recent work. In an attempt to nurture a greater sense of community and to cultivate a dynamic view of historical queer production, Dirty Looks reimagines the screening situations of the experimental and Underground Film boom of the 1960s and 70s. Situating screenings in alternative spaces, Dirty Looks celebrates the collaborative and social aspects of NYC film culture.
