TOKEN HOMO presents a second season of BAR TRASH – TRASH PLANET – a celebration of 70s eco-horror at Genesis Cinema & Rule Zero. Tickets £1 / Double-bill £5 – Booking now!

120 BPM aka 120 battements par minute d. Robin Campillo, 2017 presented by Trasnmissions at Dalston Superstore (21 NOV 19:00).

“Transmissions takes you to 1990s Paris when we screen Robin Campillo’s soul-shaking ode to HIV activist group ACT UP, 120 Battements par minute (2017) with a special intro by a current member of ACT UP.”

“Weaving the group’s routine of protesting in the day and clubbing at night closer and closer together across its runtime to a soundtrack of pulsing electronic music, the film beautifully illustrates the element of resistance at play in simply existing as a queer person in the face of government forces that are determined to stamp you out.”

“Transmissions is proud to present one of the finest works of queer cinema in the past decade to our majority trans audience, in our weekly community space that requires no entry fee, and always centres the local trans community.” (Transmissions)
