Event: In Conversation with Juliet Jacques and Campbell X, Studio Voltaire, 16 Nov

Studio Voltaire, London
16 November 2022

Filmmaker and writer Juliet Jacques leads an in-conversation with director Campbell X and writer and activist So Mayer.

Taking place as part of the public programme for Huw Lemmey’s new film Ungentle, produced in collaboration with Onyeka Igwe, this event will lean into a broader discussion around approaches to contemporary filmmaking in the context of queer fictional cinema. Touching upon various points of interest that relate to Ungentle, the panellists will draw on their own respective work, exploring interpersonal connections to place, history, visual language and self identity, through the intricacies of gender, sexuality, class, and access.

Alongside this discussion the panellists will also be screening a selection of short films and extracts, including Juliet Jacques’ Studio Voltaire commission You Will Be Free (2017), Still We Thrive (2022) directed by Campbell X, and Queering di Teknolojik (2019), a collaboration between Timothy Smith, So Mayer, Campbell X, Valentino Vecchietti and Teresa Cisneros.
