Picturehouse Central's LGBT cinema strand OUT At Central presents a new mini season of films chosen by actress and filmmaker Clea DuVall, starting with Clea DuVall presents... Bound.
"When I was young, it was vital for me to see LGBTQ characters in film. Seeing myself represented helped me accept the parts of myself I thought needed to change. There weren’t many LGBTQ characters when I was growing up, but the ones I had meant the world." – Clea Duvall.
To start the season, Clea has chosen The Wachowskis' cult-classic, genre-blending thriller from the '90s, Bound. The screening takes place on Monday 7 November, 7.00.
"This was the first time I saw a woman playing what is essentially the guy’s role. The reimagining of the gender roles turned what could have been another crime thriller into something truly unique."
Also playing are :
"The relationship between Lucy and Syd was like seeing a fairy tale that was made just for me. Watching them fall in love made my heart ache." Lisa Cholodenko's underrated '90s indie.
