The Sunday Society is a cool queer film and arts residency by queer arts collective co-curate. Each outing we take a film or theme and through screening, art, sometimes performance and chat, explore the rich vein of ideas, aesthetics and feelings they present.
Our next outing on Sunday May 18th is a screening and party to celebrate the 10th anniversary of one of the defining clubbing documentaries of the 2000's, TWISTED.
In 1997 DJ Wayne G and writer Stewart Who? recorded the legendary dance track ‘Twisted’. The Gold-selling, controversial success of this single led to an international tour, taking them to Australia, Rome Pride, White Party Palm Springs, on board a gay Caribbean cruise and to Fire Island NYC. The film follows their journey through the global gay party scene.
Using frank video diaries, it’s a brutally honest and sometimes hilarious account of their close friendship & the problems incurred from an excessive life on the road. With an original pumping soundtrack, breath-taking editing from Paul Hammacott and exclusive footage, this underground movie is a cult classic that always leaves an audience shaken and somewhat stirred.
