TEAROOM

January 21 @ 13:00 - 15:00

LSFF: TEAROOM screens at ICA (21 JAN).

LONDON SHORT FILM FESTIVAL presents: TEAROOM – Video artist William E. Jones uses police surveillance footage to examine communal spaces made for themselves by cruising gay men in the 1960s.

There will also be a showcase of Robert Yang’s videogame THE TEAROOM, a cruising simulation made in direct response to the film, replacing all the penises with guns to (successfully) avoid censorship.

The screening is followed by a discussion with filmmaker Sam Ashby, artist Prem Sahib and game developer Robert Yang, hosted by Dr Fiona Anderson.
