LRFC creates an open space to embrace our love for film, and discuss issues, thoughts & ideas.

The Film Club will be free of charge, taking place in various living rooms (or space we find with a white wall). If you want to join our events please message us for information. Everybody welcome. BYOSnacks.




LRFC  SEASON



For the next four weeks, Vadí? Nevadí presents a season of trans filmmaking. Each Monday we will suggest a trans-focussed feature film accompanied by a short for you to watch, and each Sunday we will hold a zoom discussion – a safe space in which to share our thoughts, fears, ideas, and beyond. We have tried our best to ensure that almost all of the films are free to access (the only exception is Happy Birthday, Marsha! Which is available on Amazon Prime), however if you struggle to get hold of them please let us know.


Each week we will send out the link for the films and the Zoom meeting, so keep your eyes peeled and also take a look at our Instagram page with more regular updates @vadi.nevadi

ISSUE#2, April 22nd 7pm, ZOOM

It is truth that the real news story dominating the headlines is the revelation that historic legend, icon and sometime Queen Britney Spears is a fully fledged Socialist. Isn't this truly the ray of light we all needed?

So, at LRFC we are recognising our new leader with the feature screening of Crossroads (dir. Tamra Davis, 2002). To accompany this overlooked masterpiece, we will also show works from two feminist socialist revolutionary filmmakers from Cuba - Sara Gomez and Mayra Segura. Socialist and feminst ideologies can find themselves interwoven, and gender representation became massively significant in revolutionary and post-revolutionary Cuban Cinema.

To join our ZOOM Livingroom Session, drop us a line and we will send you link to join the online screening.

-----
Our first event took place in February. In our first edition we showcased films banned by Eastern European and Russian authorities in the Communist era. We wanted to explore why these 'salacious' films were banned - what threat did they pose to an idealised society? How do they speak?



The main film screened was a nod to our namesake - Vera Chytilova's DAISIES. The tale of a mischivous, joyous, naughty friendship has a wickedly rebellious heart.

Does it matter? It doesn’t matter.
