DRCLAS Film Series
During the 2021-2022 academic year, the DRCLAS Film Series will be hosted online and will feature events including a presentation by the student in charge of the session, a conversation with the director of the film and Q&A with the public. The movies will be offered for free through streaming two days before the event to pre-registered participants.
Are we there yet? A Film Series on Queer Futures is a curatorial exercise to interrogate philosopher José Esteban Muñoz’s opening sentence to Cruising Utopia (2009) “Queerness is not yet here. Queerness is an ideality. [...] We have never been queer, yet queerness exists for us as an ideality that can be distilled from the past and used to imagine a future. The future is queerness's domain.” Curated and designed to question our queer chronologies, Are We There Yet? serves as a catalyst for an intersectional dialogue with the people who orchestrate the LGBTQIA + narratives of the films we have selected. The Film Series goal is to ignite conversations that hinge on our diverse border experiences while always looking out for the queer.
Curated by Laura Pérez Muñoz and Adrián Ríos, PhD students in Romance Languages and Literatures, Harvard University.
