Queer Genius
Director: Chet Catherine Pancake
Documentary, USA, 114 min.

Queer Genius explores the remarkable lives of five queer female artists: Barbara Hammer, Eileen Myles, Black Quantum Futurism, Moor Mother, and Dynasty Handbag / Jibz Cameron.
Deep, affectionate, and intimate portraits resonate across generation as critically acclaimed and notoriously radical queer artists overcome personal and political obstacles to find new ways to think about and live their own “genius.”
