Orlando, My Political Biography (2023)

Paul B. Preciado • 98' • France

Join Roffa Mon Amour and Oase in collaboration with Queer Cinema from LantarenVenster for an exciting celebration of Pride Month on Friday 7 June! We invite you to a special queer film night. Enjoy an evening of cinema and connection as we come together to celebrate and uplift the voices and stories of the LGBTQ+ community.

We will be screening a film, Orlando, My Political Biography (2023) by Paul B. Preciado:

Blurring the lines between reality and fiction, this film expands Virginia Woolf’s novel, Orlando: A biography, in which the main character changes gender midway through the story to become a 36-year-old woman. Being transgender himself, Preciado casts 26 contemporary trans and non-binary actors to each play the modern-day main character, Orlando aged between 8 to 70, all wearing a white baroque ruff collar, who tell their stories. It won the Teddy Award at Berlinale.

Talk: Romy Rockx & Bappie Kortram

Before the film starts, we’ll warm up with a conversation featuring Romy Rockx and Bappie Kortram moderated by Nychenda Fecunda, a program maker, researcher, and a wonderful waacker.

Romy started Queer Gym out of a personal necessity and has since completed a personal training course to provide the best coaching possible. He offers personal training to a diverse clientele, catering to people of all body types and experience levels, from beginners to experts. Romy is driven by his passion for the power of the human body, both physically and mentally.

For Romy, Queer joy is a daily practice. He says, “Queer joy means being shamelessly myself, experimenting, failing, and taking care of myself and others.

Bappie Kortram
Bappie Kortram is a Black fat trans man, living in the Netherlands, who focuses on building an online and offline space for fat and trans people. Trans joy is the most important part of this thing called life together with getting paid and getting laid.
