Queer Cinema Collective presents: Paris was a Woman & Born a Rebel at Partisan, Manchester, 6 March 2019, from £4 - Book now

Manchester’s Queer Cinema Collective present a special evening of film for International Women’s Day at Partisan this March. The collective are dedicated to screening work about groups that are underrepresented within and beyond queer cinema and attendees can expect a warm, open environment with tea, coffee and homemade baked goods to enjoy on the venue’s comfy sofas.

The evening starts with Born A Rebel, a 15-minute short film composed from an exclusive collection of footage from the Yorkshire, North West and North East Film Archives, which celebrates the women’s rights movement across the North of England. This is followed by Greta Schiller’s 1996 feature documentary, Paris Was A Woman. Also made up of archive footage, the film uses groundbreaking research and home movies to present a portrait of the female (many of them lesbian) artists, writers, photographers, designers, and adventurers who settled in Paris in the early 20th Century.
