Southwark LGBT Pride Festival: Film Night

“Cloudburst” (2012), dir Thom Fitzgerald. With Olympia Dukakis, Brenda Fricker and Ryan Doucette. An exhilarating, crazy older-dykes-on-the-run movie, as Stella (Dukakis) liberates her blind life partner Dot (Fricker) from an old people’s home where she’s been interred by Dot’s daughter. They flee to Canada to get married, in order to give Stella rights; on the way they pick up a male stripper (Doucette)... Something for absolutely everyone. This is a seriously good cult movie which will have you devastated by the end.

Bring poems, bring songs, bring musical instruments from guitars to the spoons, bring magic tricks, tap-dancing, balloon animals - but above all, bring yourselves.
