Juliet Jacques Presents, Part I
Institute of Contemporary Arts

J. S. Watson & Melville Webber, Lot in Sodom (1933)

Writer and filmmaker Juliet Jacques presents a two-part programme of experimental queer cinema. Focusing on works from the 20th century, Part I includes films by Barbara Hammer, Jerry Tartaglia, and J.S. Watson Jr. & Melville Webber.

Starting with a pivotal work from the American inter-war avant-garde, these works chart the emergence of gay and lesbian filmmaking, the impact of the HIV/AIDS crisis, and the development of trans culture and politics.
Juliet Jacques is a writer and filmmaker based in London. She has published two books: Rayner Heppenstall: A Critical Study (Dalkey Archive Press, 2007) and Trans: A Memoir (Verso, 2015). Her short fiction, essays and journalism have appeared in Granta, London Review of Books, The Guardian, Tribune, Frieze, Sight & Sound, Filmwaves and many other places. Her short films have screened in galleries and festivals worldwide.
