Event description
We team up with KCCUK and Birkbeck to present this doc about Korea's first gay choir, a vital LGBTQ+ safe space. AVAILABLE IN THE UK ONLY.

About this event

Weekends follows G-voice, the first Korean gay choir, founded in 2003. First-person accounts, video clips, live performances, footage of marches and exhibitions express the experience of being in G-voice.

The film links personal stories with the choir’s arc as the safeguard of a community. G-voice’s passionate struggles against discrimination are expressed through their music, but also through their relationship and professional choices. Weekends transmits a powerful sense of freedom, hope and the transformational powers of solidarity.

Lee Dong-ha’s first documentary feature is an uplifting, witty and honest film about community activism. Winner of the Panorama Audience Award at the Berlin International Film Festival (2016), in the film’s visual space the everyday joyously co-exists with the extraordinary, while the narrative rhythmically oscillates from heartbreak to triumph.

This online screening is accessible in the UK only, and will be available to watch at any time from 7pm (BST) on Thursday 29th July to 11:59pm (BST) Saturday 31st July. The film will have English language subtitles for all dialogue, but these are not hard-of-hearing subtitles.
