FICGLB - STONEWALL 50TH ANNIVERSARY
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, which took place in New York in 1969, and marked the beginning of LGBT rights release.
From the annual section of the FICGLB, Barcelona International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, we have selected films that reflect the concerns of young people, taking into account the work of the female filmmaker, who has a prominent role in the programmed films, whether as a director, screenwriter, documentary artist or actress, short, documentary or fiction film. They cover LGBTI topics (Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Bisexual and Intersex). From respect for identity and feelings in old age (What can not be seen, short film awarded by the public in FICGLB 2018) to the relationship with age difference (Román), going through the discovery of love in prison (Jail boards), harassment at school (Reverse -Inside Out-), the girl who does not identify with her gender identity (Erick), and the origin of transsexual liberation in Catalonia (600 meters of freedom).
Xavier-Daniel (director and programmer of the FICGLB, founder of Catalonia, 25 years ago, of the
the first film competition in Spain to specialize in LGTBI subjects).
